How do you prove your innocence when you don’t even remember whether you did it or not?


After a demon attack reveals Dexter’s secret – that his Gran taught him magic – the twenty-three-year-old librarian is forced to work for the local magical law enforcement agency in order to prove his loyalty, and hopefully save his grandmother from execution.

However, when someone tries to frame him for crimes he doesn’t remember committing, Dexter realizes he’ll have to start an investigation of his own. Joined by his beloved husband Eli, their best friend June, and his journalist cousin Kat, he desperately tries to prove his innocence…which is kind of difficult when gaps in his memory make him doubt everything he thinks he knows about himself.

The race against time begins. Can Dexter and his team uncover the criminals weaving the web of guilt around him before it’s too late, or is he going to lose everything and everyone he cares about?

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.

The Southern Magicks (The Southern Magicks #1)

Can a twenty-three-year-old librarian uncover the web of guilt that criminals are weaving around him, or is he going to lose everyone he loves?


When ghostly and magical encounters greatly increase and someone tries to frame him for crimes he doesn’t remember committing, Dexter and his beloved husband Eli team up with their best friend June and Dexter’s journalist cousin Kat in a desperate attempt to discover what’s going on.


But how does he prove his innocence when the gaps in his memory make him think that perhaps he did commit those crimes? And how does he save his dear Gran whose only crime, as far as he knows, is secretly training him magic?


And what other dark secrets do the gaps in his memory hide?


He’ll have to find answers, and soon. But how does he do that when he can’t even trust his own brain to keep what it finds?
