The Witchling Grows Up: Family Pendragon # 1 by Mary Moriarty

The Witchling Grows Up
Family Pendragon # 1
By: Mary Moriarty

Dylan Pendragon is not what she appears to be. She appears to be a twenty something, hippy, new-age follower… When in fact she is a ninety-year-old, witchling from one of the oldest families connected with witchcraft.
She has yet to get any powers so to speak. But she is destined to be the most powerful witch of them all…
And she is a virgin.
Justice is a seven thousand years old Vampire. He is the oldest friend to his former king of their kind, Cormac O’ Heachthanna. There are three things that vampires love. Blood, fighting and sex and not necessarily in that order. Justice lost his wife about six thousand years ago, so he has devoted his life to keeping mankind safe… and he has had no sex in that many years.
The Dark One has one thing on his mind. Capture Dylan Pendragon and take what he thinks is his… her virginity and her power which will blossom like a rose once she is taken. He will do anything to get her and that power or die trying.
In the course of one night under a full moon two become connected and set into motion events that can’t be stopped that will ultimately bring victory for some or one and the rest will be cast into the underworld for eternity and beyond.
Can Justice show Dylan he wants to protect her without touching her? Will he listen to his heart where love that has been dormant for so long, and is waiting to be released?
Will Dylan allow Justice to protect her so she can figure out how to get her powers and be strong enough to fight the Dark One? Or will she fall and be the sacrifice that the Dark One intends her to be.

My Favorite Witches
I am going to share with you some interesting information on this author.
I won't get into all the names in my genealogy but my Great, Great grandmother was Anna Putnam, descended from the Salem, Mass Putnams who started the whole witch hunting hysteria. From my genealogy work and from historic work that is all documented in the New England Genealogical Society down in Mass., that I have conducted for many of not only my family histories but for historical societies, the whole witch trial started because of two Putnam brothers. I am descended from the youngest who ended up being a favorite of his father. He ended up getting a good portion of the property and his older half brother was upset. There were accusers and then there were the defenders who though not accused of witchcraft themselves were running the risk of being accused. The youngest was one of the defenders.
Fast forward to the early 1980s I was told by a pastor that the reason why I had migraines was because there were witches in my family background... It's funny because everyone in my mother's family do have migraines... I do know migraines are hereditary but not because there are witches in our family tree or anyones family tree. Though some women in my family did or do practice magic and are part of the religion of Wicca.
Now as a small child growing up in the 1960s I loved the show Bewitched. I finally bought for my youngest son the whole set of them because he liked to watch Wizards of Waverly Place. For me watching those old re-runs brings back a nostalgic time of when I was little. My mother who died when I was five brought a lot of magic into my life with her stories of wee people and watching her in the kitchen.
A great little gem that many may not know about is a movie called Bell, Book and Candle with Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak. It's based on the Broadway comedy.
Fast forward to present day, the movie Practical Magic with Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, Stockard Channing and Diane West. I love the movie because it's about a family of witches, which to me is very important. I also love the music with it.
The last movie of witches I love because it brings in some history, even if it's not real but it's one of those fun movies... Hocus Pocus.
Once October comes, I am in high gear to decorate with pumpkins. My youngest son and I go all out. We have a street like the street in my next book "Emma Brewster: Too Hot to Handle" that closes down to all cars and only people are allowed. It's always a magical night.
Author Info

I grew up in New England surrounded by a lot of history and storytelling by my father who was from the Mid-Coast of Maine. What I remember of my mother was her love of fairy tales, the wee people and poetry. So it’s no wonder I would one day write.
When I am not writing, I read. Of course I love Romance but can’t read the same genre that I write so I read mysteries, memoirs and history… I love history, especially Medieval and WWII.
I don’t generally watch TV but I love Downton Abbey.
My favorite authors… Mmmm, well let me see. Jane Austen, the late Elizabeth Peters, LM Montgomery, Loretta Chase, J.R.Ward , Sharon Kay Penman and Pamela Kaufman to name a few that come to mind.
What do I do when I am not writing? I am a mother of seven, four still at home. I have a home filled with pets, four dogs and six cats. I write seven days a week.
