Something Wicked would like to welcome Roxanne Rhoads! She's the author of Eternal Desire.
Liz Beth, a paranormal researcher, is haunted by the seductive vampire, Quillon, who may or may not be real. She arrives in New Orleans the week of Halloween to search for the elusive vampire of her dreams and instead encounters a handsome stranger, Christien, with whom she begins a passionate affair.
Soon she is torn between her dream lover and a flesh and blood man, both of whom are a mystery to her. The closer it gets to Halloween the wilder things become. LizBeth gets closer to the truth about Quillon while Christien has her under his own spell.
Will all be revealed at the Vampyre Ball or will the masks stay in place? In New Orleans at Halloween anything is possible.
Here's Roxanne in her own words:
When I was little I wanted to grow up and be a witch. I was so sure that when I turned thirteen I would come into my powers (I read that in a book) and I was so disappointed when my thirteenth birthday came and went and no powers came my way. I kept hoping that maybe I was just going to be a late bloomer but no such luck.
See I really loved the show Bewitched and the books…I devoured anything and everything that had anything supernatural in it. Even if it just hinted at being supernatural, like the old Gothic romances that would lead you into scary situations that always ended up having a human element. Didn't care, I loved the spooky story.
My own scary ending though, well, to this day I can't really say that I've come into my powers. Now if you ask my husband he'd probably say something totally different. He would comment on my seemingly unnatural scent capabilities or my acute hearing (I chalk that up to supersonic mommy hearing, we have to be able to hear our babies wherever they are, the scent thing maybe I'm part bloodhound). Or he might even mention how I always seem to know things, things I shouldn't know like when he's planning a surprise for me or what gift he's buying. Honestly there's nothing supernatural there either he just really sucks at keeping a secret. LOL.
Even if those are my super powers or my witch capabilities I personally was hoping for something a little flashier. Like being able to twitch my nose and the house is clean or wave my hand and dinner is ready. Now those are powers that would come in handy to a super busy mom of three who also happens to be a writer and would much rather be writing than cooking or cleaning.
Anyway there's that old saying about "those who can't, teach". In my case it's "those who aren't, write about those who are." : So most of my stories are of the supernatural persuasion-ghosts, werewolves, demons, and most of all vampires and…witches.
In my newest release there are no witches though the main character, LizBeth, is a paranormal researcher with a few talents of her own-like the ability to see and communicate with ghosts. Her shadowy vampire also has some unique magic up his sleeve.

To enter answer this question:
If you could only have one magickal ability what would it be? For instance seeing the future, reading minds, talking to the dead, etc.
Me, I'd like to be able to move things with my mind. It would be so easy to rearrange a room and I wouldn't have to recruit the whole family for all that heavy lifting.
