Welcome to My Haunted Pen

Margo Carey


Each time I tried to write, something supernatural would creep in. Finally, I gave in to my pen's ghostly inclinations and embraced my psychic muse.

After a terrifying surge of magic allows Alexandra Ryan to defeat a kidnapper at her parents’ grave, the arrival of an unknown relative seems like the answer to her problems. However, her family in Newport, RI, is not what she expected. They claim to be members of a Watcher Clan descended from the Knights Templar. Gifted with psychic skills, they vow to protect innocents from the ancient evil that guards their ancestors’ treasure. On her upcoming twenty-fifth birthday, Alex will gain her full powers, but a ruthless Dream Walker, intent on stealing her legacy, targets her. The only one who can protect her slumber is a handsome but aggravating Clan member. Will Alex live long enough to celebrate her new gifts? Or will this be her last birthday? 

A birthday gift to die for!

Margo Carey grew up in a small town a few miles from Salem, MA where stories of hauntings were common. She's a believer. Her home had a benign nighttime walker and something darker that frightened her dog. In her real estate career, she experienced dismal vibes in homes whose history involved frequent ownership changes. Thus was "Trace of Evil" was born.

During her time in Rhode Island, Newport's mysterious stone tower gave her an idea for the first in her Watcher Clan series, "The Convent House." Built by the Knights Templar? She thinks so.

Today, she and her husband, Paul, live in Florida with an easily spooked black cat named Sammy, Jasper, a Maine Coon cat who talks a lot but keeps a low profile, and happily, no ghosts--yet!
