The Only Sorceress by Anya Breton‏

Anya Breton is a web monkey with an obsession for nail polish and rubber chickens. Her fears include Peeps and people who hate clowns. She lives in the Midwest with her significant other.


Self-proclaimed sorceress Kora Walsh knows exactly how to use her shiny new MBA. She’ll open a new age shop in a colony of the country’s most powerful witches. But the town rife with bigots doesn’t want her or her sleek shop tainting their perfect community.

Kora would leave if she had any choice in the matter. She’s trained from childhood for her true task—infiltrating coven leadership as her mother’s mole. Failure to do her familial duty is not an option, not when her childhood nemesis is assured her failed soul for an eternity of torture.

And thanks to the colony’s loudest supporter, the beautiful Desmond Marino, failure is a very real danger.

Q) What inspired you to write this story?
Originally I’d planned to do a trilogy of urban fantasy series (yes, three series!). Each would feature a heroine responsible for keeping tabs on different groups in “Underground”. There was a gal who dealt with the undead community (Laura), someone who dealt with the shapeshifter/Were communities (Nikki), and then Kora who dealt with the magical community.

Q) How long did it take you to write?
The first drafts of all the books except for the last went very quickly (a few months). The last book took a year and a half because I couldn’t get the beginning right. I didn’t try to publish the first book until a year after I’d finished the whole series.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
I love how the words seem to flow out of nowhere and end up making exciting scenes.

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?

Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
Helena Bonham Carter. I’ve liked her as an actress since she played Ophelia. And since my favorite director is Tim Burton, I’d get to kill two birds with one stone ;)

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
Beer. A few years. Neither my significant other or I like beer, but we keep buying bottles if they have neat names/labels.

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
More Sorceress books (with even more Desmond, Maximo, and Trip).

Thank you, Pembroke!
