A MAGICAL MISFORTUNE

Title: A MAGICAL MISFORTUNE
Genre: Young adult light fantasy
Awards: Watty "New Voices" November 2016
Cora Emerson is a magical misfortune who just can't get the hang of being a wicked sorceress. Being wicked would be easy if she couldn't help being good instead. But her eighteenth birthday is fast approaching, and if she can't ruin one person's life by then, she'll lose her powers for good, bringing dishonor to her family's name.

Just when she thinks she's found the perfect victim, naive and unassuming, the unthinkable happens. She falls for him. Love and magic would be simple if the person whose life she's meant to ruin wasn't her boyfriend.

As Cora would say, "For the love of Jupiter."
