Lisa Traugott likes to escape into the mist of the past to march with Highlander rebels, commune with witches and foil plots of aristocratic villains, which is to say she is putting her history and theater double-major degree to good use.

Her debut novel To Rescue A Witch is coming soon. She lives in Texas with her husband, two kids and English bulldog Bruno.

To Rescue a Witch – Coming soon

An abused girl accused of witchcraft must be defended by a man married to an actual witch.

In 1739, William MacLeod, the heroic Scottish brute of a layer must travel to Virginia colony to rescue young, motherless, abused Annaliese and deliver the girl to her aristocratic father in London, while enemies at home threaten to expose his wife as a murderous witch.

It’s like the heroic rescue of News of the World meets the witch trial of Hour of the Witch with the swashbuckling adventurous feel of Rob Roy.

Told mainly by MacLeod and Annaliese it explores themes of betrayal and redemption.
