Shanon Grey weaves romance and suspense with threads of the paranormal. THE SHOPPE OF SPELLS is the first in her series, THE GATEKEEPERS. Shanon spent her life on coasts, both the beautiful Atlantic and the balmy Gulf. Hurricane Katrina taught her the fragility of life and the strength of friendship, family and starting over. She currently lives in northern Georgia, trading the familiarity of the coast for the lush beauty and wonder of the mountains, where her husband fulfilled her lifelong dream—to live in a cottage in the woods. There, she garners inspiration from horses grazing on rolling pastures and deer that wander by to tease her beloved dog.

A Bit About Ruthorford by Shanon Grey
It is autumn--a time of magic and change—and a special time in Ruthorford, Georgia, the town where The Shoppe of Spells weaves its magic. To enter Ruthorford, one must cross one of two bridges, across the water that serves the town as well as isolates it. Founded by people from Scotland and inhabited by their offspring, a combination of Scotch and Native American, the good people of Ruthorford have thrived, prospered, and evolved.
Take Teresa and Bill Ruthorford. Teresa, originally an Abbott, one of the founding families, met and fell in love with Bill Ruthorford, also from a founding family. Although they grew up in the same town, the very reclusive young man left to make his way far from what he felt were oppressive restraints while Teresa was still in Junior High School. He returned and, avoiding his family, took up residence at the Abbott Bed and Breakfast, run by none other than Teresa Abbott. Known for her beauty and hospitality, she had turned her family home into a thriving Bed and Breakfast, serving her famous baked goods to her guests. Bill, having travelled the world to hone his culinary expertise, swept Teresa off her feet and together they offer some of the best food around. Some would say magical. Guests and residents alike are gifted with her warm personality and tasty treats. Bill, however, is seldom seen, staying more and more in the kitchen or their attic apartment, letting speculation grow.Then there’s Miss Alice and Miss Grace, two sisters who live at the other end of town in their family residence. Outgoing and friendly, the sisters meander all over town, offering advice and samples of their price winning pies. Neither sister ever married and no one opening asks why. There are hints that a love triangle was involved. However, that’s just speculation. Nobody can remember when the sisters weren’t twittering around Ruthorford. They are as much an institution as Miss Grace’s peach pie.And, of course, there’s The Shoppe of Spells. The picturesque building is the only building touted to be as old as the Abbott Bed and Breakfast. A bit more gothic in nature, the shop was built as a home and business for a woman who’d fled the north, having been accused of practicing witchcraft. She named her store The Shoppe of Spells in defiance of the persecution she’d experienced most of her life. In Ruthorford, she soon found that persecution did not exist and her shop flourished, providing lotions, potions, and tinctures of herbal concoctions. Long gone, her story now resides in the annals of Abbott House Foundation, located in Atlanta, which holds all the secrets of Ruthorford.The Shoppe of Spells’ most recent owners, Melissa and Thomas Kilraven, tragically killed in a plane crash, left Ruthorford in quite a fix. Morgana Briscoe, known to her family and friends as Morgan, finds her relatively normal life turned on its ear when she learns not only that she is adopted, but her birth parents are dead and she now holds half-interest in The Shoppe of Spells with their ward, Dorian Drake. Despite his riveting good looks, Dorian can barely conceal his hostility toward his new partner. Soon after arriving in Ruthorford, Morgan discovers that she is more than she seems and together she and Dorian have abilities beyond her imagination. Unable to control their growing attraction, Morgan and Dorian dance around their desires and her burgeoning abilities, until danger forces them to face their destiny.
