Alex McKenna & A Winter’s Night
The Alex McKenna Series Book 3
by Vicki-Ann Bush
Genre: YA Paranormal, LGBTQ
The third installment in the award-winning Alex McKenna Series, this LGBTQ teen paranormal adventure perfect for fans of Aidan Thomas’ CEMETERY BOYS and LOST IN THE NEVER WOODS.
For a minute, everything in Alex McKenna’s life was perfect. He only had one year left of high school, his girlfriend Margaret was the love of his life, and he couldn’t ask for a more supportive family.
His psychic powers were growing and he was learning more and more about his family’s abilities as Strega witches. Things were good.
Until the night it all fell to pieces.
As Margaret lies in the hospital after a serious car accident, her disembodied spirit searches for a way back to the living. Alex is desperate to save her and the victims of his next case: an ominous being haunting the hospital and stealing the souls of infants and the elderly, sending them straight to Hell.
The football field glittered as the warm sun kissed the frosted layer blanketing the tall grass. Alex tightened the collar of his black peacoat and slipped his hands into the cover of deep pockets. Margaret was late, and the bell would ring in a few short minutes. She had to make a stop at Buttercooky Bakery for her first period class. In an attempt to understand the second language that was a common exchange in the McKenna/LaBoccetta household, she decided to take Italian, and the class was having a “Tastes of Italy” day. Since Margaret was all about the desserts and knew nothing of the baking world, she settled on the decadent treats from her favorite go-to for anything sweet.
“What a lovely morning. Don’t you agree, Alex?”
Alex glanced over his left shoulder. May Cunningham smiled softly as she gazed out toward the open field.
“It’s nice, but I think I’d prefer it a few degrees warmer.”
Alex scrunched his shoulders. “After that hellish realm you were in, I should think the crisp air would be a welcome change.”
“What are you up to this morning, May?”
The celestial form glided up a few rows of the bleachers and sat down. She patted the empty space beside her. Alex took the cue and followed, settling down next to her.
“Nothing, really. It’s been fairly quiet since your last case. Word in the spirit world is no one should mess with Alex McKenna. He’ll have you banished to the underworld.”
“You’re kidding, right?”
“I pinky swear it’s true. You’ve become quite the man in the realm of the dead. But you should be careful—you know better than most that being feared also makes you a target for those who wish to gain your power.”
“I will. Thanks, May.” Alex nodded and smiled.
“Where’s the lovely Margaret today?”
“She’s coming, just running late.”
“Well then, you have a nice day, Alex, and try to stay out of trouble.”
“I always do, but you know trouble never cooperates.”
Alex grinned. Over the years he’d met many souls, May was by far the kindest.

Alex McKenna & The Geranium Deaths
The Alex McKenna Series Book 1
For Alex McKenna, high school is just a distraction from the love of his life, Margaret, with whom he can’t wait to spend more time once they get to college.
In many respects, Alex is just an average seventeen-year-old boy…except for the fact he’s a transgender medium born from a long line of Strega witches, possessing the ability to communicate with ghosts.
With the help of Margaret and his talented Strega great-grandmother, Alex will learn how to strengthen his abilities. The dead need Alex to help them reconcile issues they left behind—and he finds that he needs them, too. As his abilities multiply, assisting the dead becomes an outlet to channel his new energy, giving him the strength to come to terms with who he is as a transgender male, and how far he will choose to go.
