“I Am Hexed is a supernatural political thriller set in Washington D.C. and is packed with magic, mystery, personal drama and an accidental carnivorous plant.
Witches have been a part of the political fabric of Washington D.C. since it was founded. It’s only since the 1960s that witches stood together and fought to take back the word “Hexed”. A movement was ignited when witches came out of the shadows and proudly showed off their broomsticks. Now with the struggle for equality ongoing, Charlotte Helm, a junior staff member for Senator Royce, has been thrust into the murky and dangerous waters of political games between witches and their adversaries.” – via Kickstarter
A Little Bit More: Main character Charlotte is now D.C.’s Most Wanted Witch on the run. Her boss is under suspicion for political corruption so Charlotte, her ex-girlfriend Jaya, and whatever other help she can find, must scramble to keep one step ahead of the political and magical forces that are hunting her.
