This is a sample chapter of something that I've been working on. In Blackwood, the Greensmiths are one of the oldest families. Notorious for their mysterious ways and old house, its rumored that they have ties to witchcraft. For once in her life, Gwen wishes a rumor could be just that-- a rumor. Like everyone in her family, she is a witch. Little do people know, witches can go to college, too. Gwen and her best friend are now freshmen at Sterling University, a posh private institution in a little college town. Gwen expects what every teen expects: parties, late-night runs for food, study sessions, school spirit. What she doesn't expect? That the world is much bigger, and she isn't the only magical being there.
