Have you met Liz Tanner? She’s not your typical fictional magus. She more socially adept than Harry Dresdon, but not nearly as soft as heroines like Maggie O’Niell or Lily Ivory. No – Liz Tanner consorts with Daemons and Satanists, spirits of every type, and dead things from the other side. For her it’s all in a day’s work. Originally from Arizona, born to your typical white, middle-class working family, that’s where the normalcy stopped. Liz discovered she had a penchant for magick as a teenager. And, by the time she was thirty, she found herself the public relations officer of the Ordo Templi Serpentis, an underground organization of Magi and Daemon Worshipers. She also writes books about magick and sorcery, while getting herself into some rather perplexing supernatural situations – sometimes involving murder.
Okay – maybe I exaggerate when I call Liz a badass magician because she always seems to be in the middle of something strange. Sometimes those strange things kick her ass, but with finesse and brains, she always seems to come out on top, making her kinda badass in her own right.
I currently have two ongoing series with Liz and friends. The first is the OTS Mystery series of novels. Some people call them the Liz Tanner novels, I’ve also heard readers call them the “Darkness” novels (since all the titles have *darkness* in them). The second series are the OTS Shorts/Novella’s — shorter fiction starring Liz and friends in more brief adventures. Both series compliment each other.
