Published: July 24th, 2017

Seventeen-year-old Gracie Mason is homecoming queen, co-captain of the cheerleading squad, and a member of the student council. She’s also a budding burglar. While attempting her inaugural break-in, Gracie blacks out and wakes up far away from the scene. It turns out she accidentally intruded on a male witch’s “circle of power,” and now she’s bonded to him for life. To break the bond, Gracie must delve deeper into a society of witches that involves a secret club, a shadowy council, and all sorts of magical mischief.

Gracie quickly learns that dissolving the bond with Asher, admittedly a very handsome and charming witch, is more complicated than she initially thought. And right when it seems things can’t get any worse, witches start turning up dead. It’s clear that Gracie is out of her depth as her quest to sever the bond magically turns into a murder investigation.

Author's Q&A

Tell us a little about your main character. 
Gracie is rather complicated. She’s trying to figure out herself and what she wants in life, like a lot of seventeen-year olds. She also has a strong sense of loyalty and a fuzzy moral compass. 

Gracie is the person you’d want in the foxhole with you, as she’d do anything to get everyone out alive. 

What actors/actresses do you envision for a Hollywood adaption of your book? 
Gracie: Griffin Arnlund 
Asher: Dylan Sprayberry 
Willow: India Eisley 
Uncle Jonah: Matt Bonner 

Are you a plotter or a pantser? 
I’m very much a plotter. I have a “storyboard” wall in my office with three chalkboards for an outline, plot threads, and characters. It helps me to be visual. 

How many books have you written? Published? 
I’ve written 5 books, but Pink Lock Picks and Sequined Witch Hats is the first to be published. 

What are you currently working on? 
I’m working on a sequel: Pink Duct Tape and Glittery Broomsticks 

And a fun question, what crazy thing do you want to do? 
I want to touch a penguin. I have no idea why, but they fascinate me. 

Lastly, where can readers find you? 
I’m on twitter at @CRehse. You can also find updates on my website: carlarehse.com 

From 7-16-17 to 8-16-17, I’m also giving away 3 signed copies of Pink Lock Picks and Sequined Witch Hats at Goodreads book giveaway.

This would be a good read for a young adult in the high school phase of homecoming. I certainly remember that era in my life :)
