The Wisdom Court Series

Edge of the Shadow

When forensic artist Andrea Bellamy receives a 1-year, all expenses paid grant from Wisdom Court, she jumps at the chance to pursue her delayed dream to become a painter. The only catch: she must move to Wisdom Court.
 
Upon arrival at the century-old Colorado mansion, Andrea learns that Caldicott Wyntham, Wisdom Court's founder, has died. The housekeeper, Aura Lee Witherspoon, is demanding a séance to contact Caldicott while the court's other associates try to explain away "strange happenings."
 
Andrea turns to her easel, intent on fulfilling her grant, only to discover she keeps painting the same unknown face, contorted in fear she can't explain.
 
Now Andrea faces a terrifying choice: believe her trance-painting is evidence of a mental illness, or side with Aura Lee and agree that Wisdom Court is haunted by an evil set in motion a century before

A Signal Shown

Grieving the loss of her beloved grandmother, filmmaker Brenna Payne receives a much-coveted invitation to Wisdom Court, the famed institute that helps women explore their deferred dreams. The only catch: Brenna must live at the institute for one year.
 
Making the film of her dreams while garnering a fresh start is exactly what Brenna needs. But when the filmmaker arrives at the century-old Colorado mansion, her daytime hours are spent unraveling supernatural events plaguing the other women while her nights are consumed with terrifying dreams.
 
When Brenna finds a journal written by the Wisdom Court founder, the supernatural maelstrom taking over the house focuses on her. Brenna can run for her life or use the clues around her to discover the source of the ancient evil threatening the women of Wisdom Court.

All in Bad Time

Upon arriving at the stately institute, Eve hopes to connect with fellow artists, but finds the women enduring strange supernatural occurrences while attempting to decipher the second journal of the Institute's late founder, Caldicott Wyntham.

The voice grows louder.

Desperate to determine what is real and what is not, Eve joins the search for an evil talisman stolen by Caldicott, and for which Caldicott's lover paid the ultimate price at the hand of Severn Barlow, a British earl who attempted to sway World War II.

Then Eve stumbles into a secret room and comes upon an old map with instructions on how to end the Earl's remote viewing and destructive spell-work.

But Severn has one more trick up his sleeve.
