The Modern Witch World of Debora Geary, Indie Author

by NanLT

Imagine a world where magic and technology co-exist. This is the world Deborah Geary has created in her Modern Witch series of books.

Picture a world of magic, computer coding, knitting, and cookies. And a precocious 5 year old boy who might just be the most powerful witch alive.

This is the world created by Debora Geary.

I discovered the Modern Witch series of books after following a recommendation on my Kindle. From the first book I was hooked. I've since read all of the Modern Witch series plus the Witchlight Trilogy and the short stories set in this same world.

The final book in the Modern Witch series was published in June 2013, but eager fans have been promised a brand new series set in the same world and featuring many characters we have grown to love will be forthcoming in September 2013.

I Could Happily Live in this World

Or, why I like the Modern Witch series

The plots and characters within the pages of the Modern Witch book series are a far cry from a lot of the modern urban fantasy hitting the bookshelves these days. No murders, no uberworld creatures of the night roaming the streets.

What you get are every day people, going through their lives in every day ways, but with the added element of being able to do magic. When I get to the end of a book, I am hit with sadness because I don't want to leave these characters behind.

I want to sit around a table eating nutella cookies with Nell and her family. I want to drink tea with Moira and listen to her stories and words of wisdom. I even want to sit in a yarn shop with Caro and her knitting group, although I have no idea how to knit. And while I don't enter online gaming worlds, I would love to be able to spend an afternoon strolling through the witch-only areas of vitual Ream.

It's not all candy floss and fluff though either. Within these pages, the people of the Modern Witch books address the ethics of having "superpowers". They show the benefit of working together as a group while accepting the need to able to stand alone. Differences are honoured and accepted, not easily in all cases, but those who are unable to accept differences at first are able to admit the problem lies not with the other but within themselves.

What really show throughout these books, whichever the character being presented, is that Debora has done her homework. She get into the heart of each character and brings them to life, warts and all.

I have fallen in love with the people Debora Geary has created. They are the kinds of people I would gladly call friend.


Visions of Nutella Cookies

Witches and Chocolate, a Match Made in Heaven (and the Witching World)

Nell's Nutella CookiesFans of the Modern Witch books know that there are few problems that can't be talked through over a plate of Nell's Nutella Cookies, or a pint of ice cream, preferably chocolate. 

Modern Witch fan, Ai-vy spent a bit of time in her kitchen creating a batch of nutella cookies to rival those sitting in Nell's cookie jar. These are so delicious, I am certain if Aervyn could reach out from the pages, he'd be teleporting these out of AI-vy's cookie jar into his hands.

If you would like to make a batch of Nell's Nutella Cookies, you can find the recipe on Debora Geary's Facebook Fan Page.

The WitchLight Trilogy

Witches on Parole

These three books can stand together in the own right but they slip very nicely into the Modern Witch series, and feature many of the recurring characters from the Sullivan clan. New characters introduced here make future appearances in A Lost Witch.

Two misfit witches, an intensely ordered and obsessive psychologist and a rhyme slinging juvenile deliquent, come together to engage on a journey of discovery together with their mentor. Together, all three discover more of themselves than they ever imagined possible.

I'm Debora Geary, happily indie author of several more books expected out in the next year, if the kids don't spill any more water on my laptop.


Debora is a wife and mother who one day soon will be living in Canada. When not cooking with her daughter or clearing mystery pieces of foam from her son's nose, she can be found at her desk busily working on her latest book.

She hasn't said whether she's a witch or not, but she "delights in the possibility of magic that exists in all of us."
