Well over a year ago, I had the idea to launch a pen name. I wanted to create an urban fantasy universe, and use that playground for as many series as I could write.
Eventually, Robert and I decided to do this together–which I couldn’t be more excited about.
We’ve wanted to tackle something bigger together for a long time. When we first met, we would play scrabble. After the game, we would write a story, challenging each other to use as many words off the board as possible while we wrote. This produced some weird stories about invisible giraffes, and was the beginning of our collaborative work. (As with any first draft, that work is heavily buried in the folders of old computers, never to be seen again.)
We’ve come a long way since then! Jump to now, and we are ready to tell you about our first book together, published as WB McKay.
BOUND BY FAERIE by WB McKay
Sophie Morrigan inherited many magical gifts from her death goddess mother. Most of them inflict torture, except the most beautiful. That one kills.
As an agent for the Faerie Affairs Bureau, Sophie loves retrieving dangerous magical objects. The job lets her indulge her covetous nature, and most importantly, it pays the bills. But when a routine job goes south, she finds herself struggling to keep her deadly magic in check while fleeing the wrath of an enraged dragon.
In a desperate search for answers, Sophie stumbles across Owen, a fae nightclub owner who’s as sexy as he is irritating, but just happens to hold the key to her problems.
Sophie wants nothing more than to get her magic under control and return to her normal life, but first she’ll have to face off with all the dangers Faerie can throw at her. Can she fight her way back home? Or will both she and Owen fall prey to a crazed death cult?
