Title: The Witches of Vegas
Author: Mark Rosendorf
Genre: Young Adult
Where can Witches and their vampire mentor practice their powers without being discovered or persecuted? By using their magic, the Witches of Vegas become the number one act performing on the Las Vegas Strip--a great achievement for them, but not so much for the magicians--who can't possibly keep pace. Isis Rivera is the adopted fifteen-year-old daughter of The Witches of Vegas. Zack Galloway is the teenage nephew and assistant to the last magician left in the city. Although they should be rivals, when Valeria, a four-hundred-year-old witch with a long-seeded grudge against humanity arrives in Sin-City, both teens act to bring their families together to stop the evil hag in her tracks. But can the combined witches' powers and the ingenuity of the magicians be enough to stop Valeria from taking over the city and possibly the world?

Sebastian’s voice boomed through the theater.
“Ladies and gentlemen, for the last five and a half
years, you have had the opportunity to experience The
Witches of Vegas four nights and three afternoons a
week right here at the Sapphire Resort and Casino’s
main theater. But today, you will be the very first
audience to witness something truly spectacular!”
Isis’ shoulders tensed. A knot formed in the pit of
her stomach. She had levitated many times, but never in
front of more than four people. This time, it would be in
front of over four thousand strangers. Wow,
goosebumps popped out all over her arms and legs. She
took deep breaths, just as they taught her, in through the
nose and out through the mouth. It always helped calm
her nerves. Right now, they really needed calming.
“We are about to bring out a new, young witch to
the stage,” Sebastian explained. “She will have you
believing that a young girl can become lighter than air!”
“Lighter than air.” Isis closed her eyes and chanted
under her breath. “Lighter than air.” Her hands and feet
tingled with each step toward the stage. The magic
flowed through her veins like a steady leak from a
“Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for
the future goddess of magic, Isis!”

Born November, 25th, 1974, and raised in Queens New York, Mark holds a Master's Degree from Long Island University's Human Development and Leadership program.

Today, he teaches magic and Illusion to his students in order to teach teamwork while developing their confidence. Having accomplished his goals of becoming an author, Mark decided on an early retirement from writing. Then, one night, at two a.m., a new and unique story shot into Mark's brain like a lightning bolt, screaming for him to write it. Mark found himself spending several nights taking notes on the characters and their stories. That is how The Witches of Vegas was born. The second of the series, titled “Journey to New Salem,” is scheduled for early 2021.
