A close encounter with death dramatically changes Dexter’s life. The brutal demon attack forcing him to face his ability to see the dead. With his secret in the open reluctant Dexter is forced to work for the magical detective agency ran by his family. He soon finds himself investigating a forty year old murder to avenge a familiar ghost. Is looking into the past worth uncovering secrets that are better left buried?

The Southern Magicks is an Urban Fantasy/Mystery series following the story of Dexter Lacy and his non typical introduction into his local magical community just before it faces its biggest threat. It is set in the fictional Australian town of Dunn and its surrounding area. Which are based on a combination of actual places within the states of New South Wales and Queensland. The first novel ‘The Small Town Horror’ begins in early 2018 and the series will continue well into the 2020s, I’d like to work with a ten-year time span for ‘The Southern Magicks’ and its spinoffs. While I might one day collect these stories and get them professionally edited for sale as self-published novels the web novel versions will always be available on this site. If you want to read the series, you can jump in below with the fully linked chapters of the first novel in the series, ‘The Small Town Horror’. I will also add a page containing the full version if you prefer to read it without swapping pages.

On sites more friendly to shorter novels I have split the story into volumes/books based on story arc. The first volume is called The Small Town Horror. On Tapas and Wattpad the story is known as The Small Town Horror (The Southern Magicks #1). The section below lists the description and cover art for each volume.
