Bucks author publishes final novel in young adult trilogy


Bucks County author R.B. Shifman has released “Still Running Deep,” the final novel in the Savage Spells Trilogy, a Young Adult and New Adult, Contemporary Fantasy Series.

In September 2019, Solstice Publishing released Shifman’s debut novel, an Upper Young Adult contemporary fantasy, “Everyone Leaves This Place,” Book 1 in the Savage Spells series, set in a town inspired by Doylestown.

In the novel, high school senior Evee Salazar’s witch Gramma switches bodies with her, brewing wicked trouble that leaves her granddaughter fuming. Even worse, a mysterious person at Gramma’s assisted living steals a spell book and tries to destroy Evee’s life.

In January 2020, Solstice Publishing released “Love’s Heavy Spell,” Savage Spells Book 2, the sequel to “Everyone Leaves This Place.”

Both books received favorable reviews.

The third and final novel in this trilogy, “Still Running Deep,” released to Amazon May 9, wraps up Evee Salazar’s story in a “thrilling and satisfying grand finale.”

All Savage Spells Trilogy novels now can be found on Amazon.

Shifman studied creative writing at the University of Miami, and he holds two graduate degrees from Temple University. He lives with his wife, Sheri, in Jamison.

He is working on a new SciFi/horror series. He can be found on social media and on his website:
