Will pregnant Delaney Fox be Mavis Beacon’s next victim or will she outwit the witch?

When Delaney Fox made up her mind to attend a session at The Tilted Plume Writers’ Retreat in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, she had no idea how winding and treacherous the road was going to be. Eerily, none of the other students showed up. And perhaps Delaney should have stayed home, too. After all, she was five months pregnant.

Mavis Beasom, a renowned romance writer, enjoyed the life of a hermit at her glorious but isolated retreat. She was a towering and formidable woman nearing sixty, and she was certainly not one to mince words. She made no attempt to hide her black cape with the pointed hood.

Mavis soon made it clear that she was not interested in teaching her student to write. She had lured Delaney to The Tilted Plume to be the thirteenth member of her own coven for an imminent celebration of the spring equinox.

Delaney inadvertently discovers that one person has already met their uncanny demise. Will she be next? Or will Delaney outwit the witches?

In the true spirit of the cozy mystery genre, Once Upon An Equinox contains no gore, foul language, or overt sex. Each of the books in the Mystic California Cozies series can be read as a standalone, however, readers will find the stories more enjoyable if read in order.


Dovie Ruth was born into a family with a penchant for teaching and writing. From an early age, Dovie took solace in her pen — even with the knowledge that her journal would be breached periodically and read aloud to the family.

Dovie has inked her observations about courage, mental illness, disabilities, alternative lifestyles, the dark side of academia, and the baffling fit of traditional religions in our modern world.

Dovie was also mystified by the works of Alfred Hitchcock, Agatha Christie, and of course, Carolyn Keene. Those authors, among others, have been an inspiration for her own series of dark paranormal cozy mysteries.
