Sherry D. Ramsey is a writer, editor, publisher, creativity addict and self-confessed Internet geek. She writes for all ages, and she loves mysteries and magic as much as she loves spaceships and aliens–so much that she often smooshes them together in interesting ways. Sherry lives in Nova Scotia, Canada with her husband, children, and dogs, where she consumes far more coffee and chocolate than is likely good for her.
A hybrid author, Sherry works both independently and with traditional presses. Her books include three books in the Nearspace series from Tyche Books; the urban fantasy Olympia Investigations series; two books for middle-grade readers, The Seventh Crow and Planet Fleep: A Science Twins Adventure; and the slightly difficult to classify (although the closest I can come is urban fantasy) The Murder Prophet, as well as two collections of short stories.
With her partners at Third Person Press she has co-edited six anthologies of regional short fiction. Every November she disappears into the strange realm of National Novel Writing Month and emerges gasping at the end, clutching something resembling a novel. A member of the Writer’s Federation of Nova Scotia Writer’s Council, Sherry is also a past Vice-President and Secretary-Treasurer of SF Canada, Canada’s national association for Speculative Fiction Professionals.

Acacia Sheridan is a private detective with a special gift for communicating with the supernatural. Her clientele includes ghosts, demons, fae, and many more denizens of the otherworld…which makes for some interesting cases. Join Acacia and her office assistant and somewhat prickly cousin, Oliver (also gifted with the same perceptive abilities), as they bring their deductive talents and sense of humour to bear in dealing with Olympia Investigations’ most unusual clients.
We first meet Acacia when her newest client is a ghost looking for her help–to find his missing widow and stop her from making a terrible mistake. And he’s not sure how much time he has left…
The first Olympia Investigations story, “Addicted to Love,” is free on most platforms – find it through any of these retailer links.

In the novelette, “Dead Hungry,” number three in the Olympia Investigations series, patrons of a local homeless shelter start turning up dead, with suspicious-looking bite marks on their necks. A local vampire is an obvious suspect, ut as Acacia digs deeper into the case she starts to wonder…could even more sinister forces be at work?

The fourth installment in the series is Toil and Trouble, a novella available in both print and ebook formats.
When a local coven of urban witches mistakenly summons a malevolent spirit, they look to Acacia to help track him down. Inconsistencies in the witches’ story make Acacia suspect they’re not telling her everything—and then the murders start.
With her assistant Oliver stressing over an unfortunate witch encounter in his past, a demon on the loose, and a handsome police detective who wants to know too much, Acacia’s up to her sixth sense in supernatural trouble in this new novella in the Olympia Investigations series.

Kit Stablefield is a detective with a secret and a crush on a guy she knows only online, in a future where magic is a part of everyday life. But when millionaire Aleshu Coro walks into the offices of Darcko and Sadatake with a message from the Murder Prophet and fourteen days to live, everything changes.
Suddenly Kit is questioning the decisions of her past, trying to find out if the man she loves is, in fact, a man, and hunting for a murderer and a mysterious seer. With her eighty-six-year-old grandmother insisting on helping out, and a sentient goose who simply won’t stop pestering her to watch his “killer” video game moves, Kit has more than her hands full as she races against the clock to prevent Coro’s murder…and possibly her own.
The second book in the Magica Incognita series, The Chaos Assassin, is due out later this year, so this would be a great time to read the first one!
