About The Dead Man’s Deal:
When her husband Will is unexpectedly killed, Winki Witherspoon inherits more than just a New Orleans’s mansion. She inherits his talents, which are magical abilities she never knew he had. The new domestic staff—her butler Jeeves, her maid Mrs. Black, her cook Mrs. White, and her mad-scientists, Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson—help prepare her for the annual Tournament, a brutal conflict where House Champions vie to decide who will control the flow of good or evil energy into the mortal plane. Winki soon realizes, however, that one of them is a traitor, and possibly her husband's killer. From beyond the grave, Will guides her through her new life, and warns her about the temptations of evil. With the help of her silent healer and her cockroach familiar, Winki must use her newfound talent to defend her home, find Will’s traitor, and protect the world before she is killed...or turns evil herself.Source: Info in the About The Dead Man’s Deal was taken from GoodReads at https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22896363-the-dead-man-s-deal-book-1 on 18/08/2014.

About Jax Daniels:
Jax Daniels was born in Chicago, raised in Denver, educated in Berkeley (go Bears!), and employed as a software engineer in the Bay Area and Seattle. Needless to say, she’s seen a good deal of the continental US, so when it came time for her and her husband to settle down, they picked New Orleans. They live in a townhouse they call “The Tower” in Uptown with their two dogs, Savannah and Bert. Other passions besides writing are walks, yoga, and her stained glass creations.
