Publisher's Summary

Speakeasy manager Clara Woodsen will do anything to save her silent film idol from an untimely death. Even summon a demon. Even bet she can teach his half-human/half-cheetah assistant to foxtrot. But people around town are acting strange. Have Clara’s efforts unleashed a zombie plague? Or are her customers just really bad at dancing the Charleston? And can a career-minded woman find happiness with the man of her dreams if she uses her…brains?
All Bernard Benjamin wants is a quiet life. At least as quiet as possible for a young college man possessing a golem housekeeper, five demon-summoning witches for cousins, and a dance partner who has not only two left feet but two right feet as well.
Bernie is used to being his cousin Clara’s stooge, but when the chips are down and push edges toward shove, he knows they’ll back each other one hundred percent. So why has Clara tied him up in a pentagram? And what’s she doing with that sharp, shiny knife…?

Hellfire and Hooch

This book was funny, sometimes scary and at all times interesting. The narrator does an excellent job giving each character in the story a unique voice. The writing alternates between the main characters, Clara, a lovesick teen and Bernie, her cousin and partner in crime. Because of Clara's crush on her silent movie idol, Beau, she unwittingly subjects them all to the machinations of a Demon. Throw in mobsters, zombies and tainted hooch and you have the makings for a huge disaster. I look forward to more works from this author.

Witches, Demons, Zombies and Gansters

Imagine a roaring 20's world with moon-shining witches, warlocks, a housekeeper Golem, a dancing shape shifting cheetah/Genie and her demon master and oh yes a Zombie silent movie idol; Oh I almost forgot the ghost.

Our main heroes are Clara and Bernie cousins from a family of witches. Even though Bernie is 3 years younger than Clara he acts like her younger brother as Clara is a pro at getting both of them into trouble and mischief.

Bernie is a care free college student with a mothering housekeeping Golem named Gladys who's been a servant of his family for generations. Bernie is happy not to of inherited witch craft as he come from a family of witches. Thanks to his cousin Clara this will change.

Clara is infatuated with Beau a silent film star who is on his his death bed. When Clara with Bernie's reluctant assistance summons a demon in order to save Beau she not only releases Bernie's hidden witchcraft genes she also creates a world of hilarious havoc.

This novel is a bit different and fun.
