More About the Author

Hi, I'm Ann Macela, and I write enchanting, smart, and sensual contemporary romance and contemporary light paranormal romance. Sometimes with a touch of humor, sometimes with a little sorrow, always with passion and emotion.

My latest books are a two-book contemporary romance series, Wolves in Business. Wolf in Jester's Clothing and Wolf on Thin Ice tell the story of two brothers who find their true loves where they least expect them. Warning: These are NOT shapeshifters, but alpha businessmen. Like the Magic Series, it's best to read them in order.

My award-winning Magic Series is about a group of people who can cast spells to help them with their everyday jobs. Wouldn't you like to have an ability that would help you type faster, make accurate change, fix the plumbing, or grow flowers and vegetables? Or whatever it is that you do? And these people, who call themselves practitioners, are guaranteed to find their soul mates. Ready or not, and whether or not they want one at that particular moment. As the series progresses, the magic gets more complicated and so do the relationships. Included in the series now are the last two stories, never before published.

Windswept won the Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award for Best Romance, Small Press, 2008, and several other awards. Writing this standalone contemporary with a historical twist took me back to my first love, the study of history, and it definitely shows off my Texas roots. There's a terrible secret in the papers of the Windswept Plantation . . .

I'm a native Gulf Coast Texan, now living in The Frozen North of Chicagoland. I started life reading mysteries, then sci-fi and fantasy. When I discovered romances, I saw a way to combine all the aspects of books that I liked into my own stories. And what a welcome difference from writing computer manuals--my old job and which has no magic about it at all.

Let me know what you think of my stories. Contact me either at or

I've read each of the preceding books in this series and loved them.
M. J. Scheibl
The soulmates part of the story was very interesting with the adversaries trying to find common ground.
Arlene M. Stephens
There's not an overabundance of spell casting or good witch/bad witch or too much angst.

Botanist Dr. Gloriana Morgan comes from a large, cozy, sibling-riddled magic-oriented clan who are all invested in the family's organic herbal farm. Having that background, it's no surprise she is a proponent of traditional magic working. Think messy magic, lots of practicing, cauldrons, and spell-casting.

Gloriana's nemesis, Dr. Marcus Forscher, is a mathematical genius who has come up with a way to formulize and "clean-up" the magic working process. Marcus is really Gloriana's opposite. Though aware of his successes, his parents are both stuffy folks with careers of their own. He's an only child and a neat freak.

Ed Hearst, the Editor of The Witches and Warlock Journal, is the catalyst that brings these two folks together. He concocts a city-to-city debate tour to garner attention to his magazine

and generate a buzz in the magical practitioner community. Whether he's expecting the swarm of angry hornets that emerges from the shake-up is something that's not really addressed in the novel. But as with most debates, sides form, radicals emerge, and someone is bound to get hurt.

Don't get your grundies in a bundle. No one is ACTUALLY hurt. The threat of bodily harm just lingers like a leftover-from-lunch garlic breath specter. Along the tour, Marcus and Gloriana realize they're soul mates. The Imperative, a nebulous ancient magic, strongly encourages them to consummate their budding relationship. Due to his upbringing, Marcus has already decided he'll never take a soul mate. And Gloriana is looking for someone to share more of her interests than just a taste in the same breed of dog and a need to go jogging whenever life shakes her up.

At nearly five hundred fifty pages, Your Magic or Mine is not a book to be picked up by the casual reader.

Ann Macela is a writer I 'discovered' by accident while browsing in a bookstore. Now I haunt her publisher's site, looking for the date of her next release. "Your Magic or Mine?" is book three in her contemporary 'Magic' series. These stories are a delightful read with humor and passion and bits of light mystery set in a world where magic practitioners exist side-by-side with unknowing non-magical humans. At heart in each story is the concept of the 'soulmate phenomenon', a magical imperative that manifests when the perfect 'other' shows up in a practitioner's life.

Gloriana is a professor and a practitioner whose talents lean towards plants and growing things. She tends to be a bit messy, comes from a loving family, and is beginning to feel a pang of loneliness for her soulmate. She's also a firm believer in 'whatever works for you' as far as casting and spells go.

Marcus is a professor and a practitioner whose talents inhabit the sphere of theoretical magic and numbers. There's a place for everything (not that he has lots of 'things') and everything in its place. He was raised at a succession of boarding schools and never really 'fit in' anywhere. He has NO intention of EVER taking a soulmate and is glad, glad, glad that he's not weighted down with emotion and 'things'. He's come up with a new equation that he firmly believes will help 'quantify' magic and spell casting.

I'm sure you can see where this is going! What in the world do these two have in common?'s more than you think and more than they realize at first. After the publication of his new equation and her rebuttal to 'quantifying' magic, there's such an overwhelming response from readers that the editor of the W2 paper (Witches and Warlocks) arranges a public debate.

This book was a little slow out of the gate. The story revolved around Gloriana and Marcus...adversaries over the "mathmatic" or "cauldron stirring" approach to magic formulas. This grew into a debate via a practitioners magazine and naturally as the public is usually led like sheep and everyone loves a good battle, public opinion ran strong....or over the top.

I feel too much time was spent on the "debates" and what happened at the various ones....just drew it out too much. I realize the author was building up the story line...however didn't need as much detail.
The plot was good and the book succeeded in spite of this, not because of it. The soulmates part of the story was very interesting with the adversaries trying to find common ground. I hadn't read the previous books so the soulmate thing didn't occur to me until later in the book.

Overall, a good read, once you get around the Will probably purchase the previous books, and may have enjoyed this one more if I'd read them in order. Didn't realize there were precursors till I was too far into the book....had to find out what happened after
