Contagious Magic Book 1

Novel by Michael Jasper



Magic: more contagious than the common cold…

Kelley Strickland and her twin brother Jeroan accidentally step into an ancient battle between a power-hungry Sorcerer—who wants to rid the world of what he calls “renegade” magic-users—and a good Sorcerer who can barely remember his own name.

Kelley soon learns that her new-found way of using magic just might save her adopted city, her brother, and her new, magically infected friends.

Or it could doom them all.

A Sudden Outbreak of Magic is a fantasy novel for all ages about ancient power, growing up, and finding your place within those two very different realms.


Michael Jasper is fascinated with exploring the places where the normal meets the strange.

In pursuit of this fascination, he has published over a dozen novels, a story collection, and six dozen short stories, along with a digital comic with artist Niki Smith.

In the past he’s tried bartending, teaching junior high, painting houses, being a secret shopper, working construction, and many more jobs; he prefers fiction writing. He lives in the mountains of North Carolina with his family.
