Local writer publishes book two of fantasy trilogy

Huntingdon resident and self-published author Bonnie DeCaen has released her latest book entitled Magician’s Forgiveness. It is the second installment in her House of Magic trilogy.

DeCaen worked for over 12 years to perfect the first book in the series, Magician’s Redemption, and has been toiling over the sequel for the past eight years. She says that while researching how to write a sequel, one piece of information stood out: “When writing a sequel, raise the stakes higher.” She says she went so far as to book a stay in a hotel to be able to work in private on this next installment, which brings Elizabeth and Wolfe, her two main characters, back together to solve the oldest mystery in the House of Magic.

“I have had quite a few people ask me when the second book was coming out. That encouraged me to finish my book by this summer,” she says, noting she will be selling copies at the Huntingdon County Farmers Market on Wednesdays. The book is also available on Amazon.

DeCaen says she has already started preparing for the conclusion to the trilogy. She plans to continue writing and will follow up this series with a mystery novel.
