Welcome to Wis' Apothecary (2021)
Magic exists to help people, or at least that’s what young Isabel believes. As a witch’s apprentice helping her renowned teacher run an apothecary, there’s no shortage of people in need—from vampires to princesses to Hybrids. And though her desire to do good often lands her in trouble, can Isabel learn enough through her misadventures to not just grow as a witch, but as a person?
"I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It’s geared more towards a young adult audience but as a grown man approaching my 30’s, Welcome to Wis’ Apothecary still kept me entertained from start to finish. Isabel Pirige and her master, Wisteria Amberfinch, along with with Isabel’s cat companion, Cloud, are just some of the endearing cast of characters that show up in this lighthearted take on the classic coming of age story- with a little added fantasy elements to keep you turning the pages."
Chris Hagy, Goodreads
"When you read this book, you see the world through the eyes and adventures of Isabel, an apprentice to a very powerful witch, Wisteria Amberfinch. The power of the story lies not only in the spells she is trying to learn and understand, but in the relationships and friendships that are forged along the way... The artwork of the cover is excellent to match a beautiful story inside, imaginative and very well written.This is the first book of a series and I look forward to road ahead."
