Hidden Gypsy Magic by Tena Stetler
Genre Paranormal Romance/Mystery/Timetravel
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
The Salem Wildlife Sanctuary is Gwen Taylor’s life work. Her Irish Gypsy heritage provides a hidden talent she uses to help the creatures under her care. But even her magical skills can’t help new rescues in dire need of veterinary care.
The opportunity of signing on as the vet for Gwen’s sanctuary dropped into Brock Scutter’s lap after he expanded his practice to include wildlife. The personal attraction he and Gwen experience is undeniable the more their professional and personal lives collide.
Touring the only “non-haunted” house in Salem they both feel a spark of magic. A trip to his family’s cabin uncovers a heritage he didn’t know existed. If they want a future together, it means facing the consequences of awakening hidden Gypsy magic and a race against the clock to correct past wrongs.
When someone dies, we say they “kicked the bucket.” Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations to experience, and so on have become known as a “Bucket List.”
Birthplace: Salem, Mass
Profession: Wildlife Rehabitator and Sanctuary manager/owner
Ethnicity: Irish Gypsy
Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I have long black hair with pink and green highlights
Large mesmerizing violet eyes
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I’ve worked for Salem Sanctuary since high school. When I discovered the owner/operator was cooking the books, taking money meant for the creatures in their care, I confronted him. The next day, he disappeared but not before he cleaned out the bank account. I couldn’t leave all those animals defenseless. Taking a chance, I went public with what had happened. An arrest warrant was issued for the owner, but he was never found. However, the people of Salem rallied around me and the Sanctuary. Donations poured in and I was able to keep the sanctuary afloat.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Brock Scutter. Gwen fans herself. We were introduced by Pepper and Lathen. Brock is the brother of the veterinarian, Dylan, in Lobster Cove where Pepper built a Wildlife rescue.
If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.
What is your birth order?
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
I never had many toys. For as long as I can remember, I was always bringing home injured creatures with nowhere to go. Not popular with my family. Anyway toys were frivolous things in my world.
Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.
Pizza! Thin crust, lots of cheese, lots of sauce, and beef sprinkled around. I like other spicy meats, but they don’t like me. Ya know what I mean?
Tell us about your best friend.
That would be Pepper McKay. I first hired her as a volunteer at the Sanctuary years ago. Together, we’ve overcome so many adversities, saved so many creature’s lives, it’s impossible to put into words what she means to me.
What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?
Australia – They have so many different species of wildlife found nowhere else on the planet.
Ireland – I’d like to look up… will find out of any of my relatives are like me – rather than my immediate family. Enough said
Where is a place you would never like to return, and why?
I’ve not been to many places. So far I’ve not found one I wouldn’t return to.
Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?
Terry, Binde, Robert Irwin. They are trail blazers in wildlife conservation. I’d like to have met Steve. But…
Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?
The damn banker. He did finally get what was coming to him. I don’t feel bad about that. And the original owner/manager of Salem Sanctuary. He is a terrible person.
If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?
The day the former owner/manger of Salem Sanctuary ran off. I’d like to have beat him to the bank and prevented him from taking all the money. Sometimes I wonder if he and the banker were in cahoots. Never prove it, so best to let it go.
Meet Tena Stetler
What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?
Putting a different spin on the Salem Witch Trials.
Why did you choose this character for the interview today?
Gwen has been a staple in all A Witch’s Journey books. She is such a bold character with a heart of gold.
When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you?
Her ability to see the best in most people but not in herself.
Are any sequels planned for this book?
Actually, I’m glad you asked. Chocolate Raspbery Magic (Set to release in April of 2021) is the fourth book in A Witch’s Journey Series and one of the One Scoop or Two summer series from The Wild Rose Press.
What genre(s) would you like to write that you haven’t tried yet?
Cozy Mysteries. In fact I have one finished (it will be a three book series), just need time to polish it and submit it to my publisher.
What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?
I was a DJ for a rock and roll radio station.
Why should readers who haven’t picked up one of your books before give this one a try?
Now more than ever, we need heart-warming, feel-good books to whisk us away from our new normal into a magical, fantasy adventure for just a few hours. Hidden Gypsy Magic and all of my books for that matter are a welcome stress reliever, if only for a few hours at a time.
Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers? Thank you so much. I hope stories to whisk you away from your ordinary world into a fantasy adventure where you forget your troubles and stress, if only for a few hours.
