The Witch Bridle

All Rights Reserved ©

Summary

An untraditional family saga that blends paranormal and historical fiction with powerful touches of feminist erotica, The Witch Bridle tells the story of enduring evil and those who must confront it. Oona Neeci is a brilliant metaphysicist and mighty witch who suddenly assumes the role of a live-in nanny for her dear friend KC, newly widowed mother of three young children. Along with her essential belongings, Oona travels to Massachusetts with her powerful spell book and most prized possession, Pi Gran Liv Maji. Oona’s appearance is not entirely selfless. The sorceress and enchantress is determined now to renew her lustful pursuit of KC’s heart. And while she welcomes Oona’s help, KC also seeks her friend’s services to reach her departed husband. With her arrival, Oona’s book is brought into close proximity to the five year old daughter of KC. Young Thankful is a gifted child-witch from a New England family with roots deeper in the soil than those of the trees from which the ill-famed witches of Salem were hanged. Guided by the invisible hand of the Evil One named Lucia, Thankful is powerfully drawn to the Great Book. The Grand Witch of Tituba’s coven and former Guardian of Gran Liv, Lucia covets Oona’s spell book to assure her lasting power and presence in the modern day. Born in the year 1666, the High Witch and priestess is so evil that even history tried to forget her.

Preface

The story began in 2006 when a transitioning family was confronted by supernatural occurrences which deeply affected a bright eyed five year old boy named Louis. His mother, KC, was determined to understand the strange happenings in their new Virginia home and tried traditional remedies before she turned desperately to a young and unconventional, licensed doctor of ontology.

Oona Neeci, Msc.D, was the brilliant and beautiful metaphysicist who was also a powerful witch and enchantress. With Oona’s help, the vivacious KC led her family – three children and their reluctant father – to confront what turned out to be a gentle ghost in a great deal of trouble.

Anton Dietrich, paternal antecedent to the family, spoke with a broad Bavarian accent, sometimes by telepathic means. Affectionately known as Opa, Anton’s story was one of a dead man trapped in the rooftop garret of a house where, over 140 years earlier, he convalesced from the deep wounds of the American Civil War.

That summer KC and her loved ones managed to free Opa from his earthly purgatory. While doing so, Anton’s story was gradually told. Louis’ own otherworldly potencies were revealed as well, through the prism of his ancestors’ collective history. Oona’s strengths and predilections were also laid bare, and durable bonds developed between the two women.

Once KC’s family returned to its deep roots and former lives in Massachusetts, the next four years quickly passed. Then, just as that story was ready to end, KC and her children were left in shock and despair when the husband and father found himself in the company of Anton once again, this time as a kind of spiritual guide and sponsor for the Hereafter.

The Witch Bridle begins when the beautiful sorceress Oona uproots her flourishing livelihood in Virginia to serve as the live-in nanny for the just-widowed KC’s children: Charley, Louis, and their little sister, Thankful. And now in an entirely new profession about which she knows practically nothing, Oona’s motives are not entirely selfless; she has for years stoked an amorous though unrequited passion for KC. Having moved quickly to take up the void left by KC’s departed spouse, Oona arrived at the family residence within a week of his death.

And in spite of the great transition, the Harvard educated Oona Neeci had every intention of continuing her free-spirited lifestyle; she planned to refresh old connections in the area and relocate her highly successful ontology practice up north.
