When your past reaches for you across 3,000 years, there’s only one thing you can do…remember. Bethany O’Brien is a D.C editor suddenly embroiled in a Middle Eastern mystery that she can solve if only she can recall why she once betrayed Zubis, the nearly 4,000-year-old genie who loves her still. Job in jeopardy and citizenship in shambles, she plunges through London, Italy, and Egypt into Saudi Arabia, with no hope of overtime.

THE GENIE IGNITES is available from Amazon and Smashwords, and will be released soon from Barnes and Noble and Kobo.


Kellyann is an author and editor who started her writing career as a journalist. Her books of fiction usually weave the lore of the jinn into a modern setting.

Her new novel, The Genie Ignites, is the first installment in a series, The Zubis Chronicles. A native Philadelphian, she lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, three children, and two terriers.
