Headshot 2012Author of the Health Nut Mysteries, the Poison Ivy Charm School Tween Mysteries, Lethally Blonde, and Glisten

Patrice Lyle has never met a ghost story she didn’t like. She’s been fascinated with the paranormal since childhood. She attributes this fascination to having heard old family stories of ghostly wreaths, ESP, and money hidden in the lining of antique purses. She grew up on the Oregon Coast and has a Master’s Degree in Writing Popular Fiction. Now she lives with her husband and three cats near Orlando, where she’s working on the next Poison Ivy novel and trolling the area for ghostly happenings.


FWIW ~ What is your best, worst or funniest costume you've ever worn?
Patrice ~ My best was when I was a dead bride!  I wore a wedding dress with gray face make up and blood red lips!

FWIW ~ It's the end of the world. Who would you prefer to battle against? Witches, zombies, werewolves, vampires or ghosts? And which paranormal creature would you want on your side during the battle?
Patrice ~ I’d prefer to battle ghosts because you could send them to the light with some sage! And I’d want a zombie on my side because they’re indestructible!




The Case of the Washed Up Warlock Final (2)


When thirteen-year-old Tulip Bonnaire’s super-cute crush, Dexter, is threatened with expulsion from Poison Ivy Charm School, she can’t help but take the case. Someone has put a spell on Garrett’s Levitation skills and all the evidence, which includes the testimony of a sea hag stone, is pointing to Dex. Tulip can’t imagine Poison Ivy without Dex, so she’s intent on proving his innocence. But that means delving into an old secret to find out who turned Garrett into a washed-up warlock.

Book Two in the Poison Ivy Charm School Series.

FWIW ~  What is your best, worst or funniest costume you've ever worn?

Jessica ~ My old Girl Scout uniform. I was just proud I could squeeze into the darned thing. Green skirt mixed with my Brownie blouse, beanie, & tie.

FWIW ~ It's the end of the world. Who would you prefer to battle against? Witches, zombies, werewolves, vampires or ghosts? And which paranormal creature would you want on your side during the battle?
Jessica ~ I’d battle vampires with ghosts on my side. If I get turned into a vamp, no problem. The ghosts are evidence of an afterlife. I can’t lose!
