Gingerbread Children

‘Every page sizzles with fun. Riotously funny, Carman’s deliciously dark storytelling paints a fantastical world that’s a work of art, with sublime characters that seem oh-so-familiar but joyously fresh. Imagine Terry Pratchett meets… well, Carol Carman. Then take away the Pratchett – her unique style is a world unto itself, and a world you’ll love to read about – and will have you coming back for more. Hugely recommended!’

Paul Kerensa
Comedian and writer (Not Going Out, Miranda, Radio 2 Pause for Thought, TFI Friday)


Family secrets. 
An ancient curse. 
Confectionery.

Not quite what Dominica Tort is expecting when her friend dies. But then her friend was the most powerful witch in the country: the Matriarch of the University of Nature, where witches have been trained for longer than history can remember.

A new Matriarch must be inaugurated, but who will it be? Nothing is certain until the envelope’s opened – and not even then. Especially when one candidate disappears and suspicion falls on another.

And what’s the shortbread cottage all about?

As Vice-Matriarch, Dominica must save not only people’s lives, but the future of witchcraft itself.
