Lynn Cahoon’s ten favorite witches (31 Days of Halloween)

My Ten Favorite Witches – And Warlocks…
Happy Halloween Month … I love the feel of fall.  October is a special month for me as it’s my
birthday (waving hands in the air).  Add
in amazing weather that begs for walks and bike rides and I’m a happy
When I started writing The
Council Series
, I knew I wanted a witch out of water story.  Parris McCall started life in a magical
family.  But she’s blocked those memories
away and is living a different but real life as the owner of The Alibi, a dive
bar. Before Parris was outed as a witch, her grandmother had protected the
secret, even from Parris. Because that was what she wanted.  She thought. 

I love the idea of exploring ways to be in charge of your own destiny, even
when life throws you curveballs. Like you’re a witch. And your parents were witches.
And… well, I can’t give away all the plot points. 

Instead, I thought I’d celebrate October with my top ten
favorite witches.
#10 – Samantha Stevens – Bewitched. My first witch out of
water story.  I did think she should have
cast a better spell and made Darren more Rock Hudson looking.
#9 – The sister witches of Charmed.  One year while I was undergoing breast cancer
treatments, they admitted me for a few days to the inpatient ward (mostly for
exhaustion.) I bet you didn’t know you could watch four hours of Charmed back
to back by just changing channels. 
#8 – The Salem witches who made it through the trials.  I always wondered if I’d be sneaky enough not
to get caught.
#7—The Craft – Sara was the only good witch of the bunch and
they all learned that unrestrained power can corrupt.
#6—Jack Nicholson in The Witches of Eastbrook.  Nuff said, right? 
#5—I’m really digging the new crop of Fairy tale witches
being highlighted in Once Upon a Time. Maleficent is even getting her own
Disney movie. 
#4—A Discovery of Witches – Deborah Harkness.I  loved this book.
#3—Harry Potter and Crew
#2—Wizard of Oz – Are you Team Glenda? Or Team Theodora?
#1— Ty Wallace, the bachelor rogue witch hunter that finds
Parris in A Member of the Council, Book 1 of The Council Series.   He’s dark, and mysterious, and head over
heels with Parris, but of course, he won’t admit that to anyone, especially
Which witch have I missed?
Return of the Fae – Book 2 of The Council Series

A witch in training, a hunter on the prowl, and a world in
Learning the rules of being a witch takes years, but Parris
McCall needs to master them in only weeks. Ty Wallace is going mad with his
desire for Parris, but she’s a distraction in his quest to find Coven X before
they take The Council and everyone he knows down.
The couple searches for Ty’s mentor, but he’s disappeared.
Their only clue comes from a banished witch. When they return, not only are
their own lives threatened, but a new life hangs in the balance.
