Meet the Author

Tabatha has been writing since she could pick up a pencil. Her first publication was a little poem in her elementary school paper, from that point on she was hooked. When she was a teenager, she traded in her girly magazines for personalized writing notebooks.

At nineteen, she met her own personal prince charming and writing took a back burner for a while. She is now married to that prince and the mother of a beautiful six-year-old princess/rock star. Once her daughter was born, writing came back into her life, and she finished her very first novel in May of 2009.

She is pursuing a Bachelors in English and hopes to one day teach while continuing to write.

As a stay-at-home mom and full-time student, Tabatha enjoys the freedom of spending a good bit of her days doing what she loves the most...writing.

    Let me start by saying, if you want the same teen love drama whe

    Let me start by saying, if you want the same teen love drama where only the names have changed, this is not the book for you. It is different. What Mage can and can’t do. Her relationship with Thaddeus and her grandparents and her best friend…it’s all different - and when Mage sets her eyes on something, the whole world rocks. About the only normal relationship she has is with Sire…well, not really, but normal by her standards.
    On the plus side: Totally unexpected events occur. You can’t guess what will happen next. And with the cliffhanger at the end, I’m afraid to hope for what book two will bring. I see a light at the end of the tunnel, but it could be Tabatha driving a train right at my heart. It’s exciting. I like it.
    On the downside: It made me cry, several times. I mean boo-hoo like a freakin’ baby. I seriously don’t want to cry over fictional characters. I try real hard not to cry over real life people. But, that’s how good Tabatha is. Her writing sucks you in like an F-5 dropping you wherever her little heart desires.
    Bottom line: Get this book as fast as you can. Curl up in a cozy spot with a hot tea and box of tissue. Don’t plan on getting up until you reach the end.

    Great Book

    Just finished reading this book and I have to say its one of the best books I have read. My husband calls me a book worm and I read a lot so this says something. I hope the second book will be coming out soon. Reading this book actually makes u feel part of it and brought tears to my eyes at one point. I am really on the edge of my seat because I want to know what happens next. I will be looking for the next book. Great read!!!!

    Great story

    This is the firstbook I've had the pleasure of reading by Tabatha and I must say, it won't be the last. This story was amazing. I read it in less than two days.

    The story is about Mage, we can all relate to her in our teenage years. Well, except for the witch part of course. You fall in love with her innocence, dreaming about the hot guy from school, not wanting attention and hoping to be lost in the crowd. I felt myself rooting for her in her journey of finding out who she is, who her family is and how much your first love can bring you strength. Adam isap an amazing guy that you want Mage to win his heart.

    The story leaves you wanting more and I cannot wait for the next book in this awesome series.

    This is the first book I've read by Tabatha and I can say I can't wait to read more!

    The characters in this book had me from the very beginning and I couldn't read fast enough to find out where they were taking me. The way Tabatha used flowers as a way of talking to each other, just melted my heart. I wasn't happy with how the book ended, but it is book 1 in a series so I can understand and just have to wait till the 2nd book comes out.

    Telekinesis and witchery and teen angst, oh my! So much cooler t

    Telekinesis and witchery and teen angst, oh my!
    So much cooler than regular 'ole telekinetic 'Carrie', Mage is turning into a witch of epic proportions. Progressing in her abilities at a young age, she fully comes into her powers once she turns sixteen. Awkward, shy, and treated like a leper by the kids in her high school, Mage is used to floating through class without having any friends or emotional attachments. Then, a new girl moves to town and and decides to be Mage's friend, and a boy she has crushed on since they were youngsters seems to be taking an overt interest in her. Could Mage's life get any weirder? Uh, yes....it can.
    I enjoyed this book and thought that the paranormal twist was pretty unique in the genre. Of course we have a socially outcast girl, which is pretty typical in a teen angsty novel - but in this novel Mage becomes reborn. She shows a resilience of spirit and a will to persevere, regardless of what family secrets she uncovers. Ultimately the story is kind of a downer, and the reader is left hoping for Mage to get a bit of sunshine in her life. 
    The voice of Mage seems pretty spot-on as far as coming from a fifteen-to-sixteen year old, but at times this made it a little difficult to empathize with the characters as they were described. 
    All in all, an enjoyable book suitable for readers 15+ who enjoy paranormal romance.

    Worth your time

    This book is just different enough to pull you in and not feel like a repeat of so many books out there now. I really enjoyed this book. My only regret is that the second book will not be out for quite a while yet and I MUST KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!!!

    Awesome Book I haven't finished reading the book yet but I love

    Awesome Book
    I haven't finished reading the book yet but I love what I have read so far. It is very hard to put the book down because it is so interesting and you what to know what happens next in the book. I love the main characters Mage and Adam and they are a great couple. This book is based in my hometown and the places that Tabatha Vargo mentions in the book I am familiar with. I am so excited to finish this book to see how it ends. I am looking forward and I can't wait for the second book of Wicked Fate to come out. This is an awesome book and I recommend my family and all of my friends to read it. Tabatha Vargo is amazing and she did a wonderful job on writing this book.

    There are no words that can express how much I truly enjoyed this book. The imagery is fantastic! There is a kiss that is described so perfectly that it made me feel the way I did the first time I kissed my husband. It was like falling in love all over again. There were butterflies in my stomach, tingles in my toes, a giddy feeling all over, the works. Being a high school loner myself, I connected with the character of Mage immediately. The ability to feel a connection like that meant that I experienced her ups and downs with her which made it feel as though I was there in the story. Adam, well there are no words worthy of him. I gave my best to Edward, my former book love, and kicked him to the curb and moved Adam in right away. His romantic sentiments and flirtatious mannerisms had me swooning. This story is very well written. It has unique characteristics that I had not seen before. The ending, was not what I expected, but it still left me panting for the next one!!
