You're a witch.

It's the dead of night. 

You're scared. 

You might even be found out.

What on earth are you going to do?

More About the Author

Hi, Thanks for stopping by!

My name is Will and I'm located in beautiful Western Australia, and just love writing. My early career was in advertising as a copywriter, then I expanded to design, which I thoroughly enjoy even today.

A giant Thank You to all those good folk who've downloaded my story, and please feel welcome to send me comments, observations, even criticisms! -Any contact is good contact as it helps people like me who are 'having a go' at writing, receive welcome feedback from valued readers like you.

I've had so much fun writing the exploits of Cordelia and Mer, and hope you enjoy reading the free sample you're more than welcome to download from Amazon Kindle.

Hey, drop me an email any time: -love to hear from you!

I'm going to start a facebook page when I learn how!

My wife, Maxine Gadd [well known for her fairy art -], has agreed to do some illustrations for a paperback edition I'm working on right now! I'll keep you posted when it comes out with Amazon's CreateSpace print on demand. There will be over 20 exciting pictures of not only the main characters, but some of the story scenes from the book!

Thanks for reading!

A fantastic book to read! I thoroughly enjoyed the story and characters. And I especially loved the character's - Miss Starch-stiffington and Melchior Fizz. Cordelia and Mer are both charming and believable protagonists and stand up to all their adversaries brilliantly. The ending is a surprise. I couldn't put it down!!!
I'd recommend this book for anyone 8 years and beyond.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long live the Merryspells!!!! 20 Jun 2011
By FairFarren - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Long live the Merryspells" explains the feeling after reading WITCHES OF ICE - Book One: Gloom. Romping thru Witchdom with Cordelia and Mer makes one wish they WERE a Merryspell and lived in their world.

The first installment of WITCHES OF ICE has all the accoutrements necessary for a rollicking good fantasy story: good, evil, magic, love and witches! Tromping thru Witchdom with the Cheeky Cordelia and Magical Mer, we become acquainted with their friends, foes and the magical community.

This story will appeal to all fans of fantasy and magic, just as the Harry Potter phenomenon bridged the generations. I plan on reading this book again in October to get "in the spirit" of Samhain/Halloween! So, as the first book ends dramatically, I am hopefully awaiting future adventures with Mer & Cordelia Merryspell.

3.0 out of 5 stars What a fun read! 14 Jan 2014

Brought to you by OBS reviewer Valerie

Cordelia and Mer are really fun to read about. I truly enjoyed the first book of the series! While it’s definitely not a YA novel, readers of all ages will enjoy this book. I’m serious! I should be embarrassed to say that I truly enjoyed this novel, but it’s just too good to say that.

The character development is impressive as well. As the story develops, Cordelia and Mer become braver and stronger and even more lovable, if that’s possible. As a huge critic of character development, my praise truly shows the skill of the author.

As for the plot, it’s not always the most original, but going through the Witchdom is always exciting. The Witches of Ice are a formidable force, but of course Cordelia and Mer are way better!
