COVER REVEAL: Born of Deception by Teri Brown

Budding illusionist Anna Van Housen is on top of the world: after 

scoring a spot on a prestigious European vaudeville tour, she has 

moved to London to chase her dream and to join an underground 

society for people like her with psychic abilities. Along with her 

handsome beau, Cole Archer, Anna is prepared to take the city by 


But when Anna arrives in London, she finds the group in turmoil. 

Sensitives are disappearing and, without a suspect, the group’s 

members are turning on one another. Could the kidnapper be 

someone within the society itself—or has the nefarious Dr. Boyle 

followed them to London?

As Cole and Anna begin to unravel the case and secrets about the 

society are revealed, they find themselves at odds, their plans for 

romance in London having vanished. Her life in danger and her 

relationship fizzling, can Anna find a way to track down the killer 

before he makes her his next victim—or will she have to pay the 

ultimate price for her powers?

intrigue, and daring magic.

Born Of Illusion (Born of Illusion #1)
Teri Brown’s YA novel Born of 

Illusion launches a thrilling new series 

laced with romance and magic. Each 

book is linked to a real-life secret 

society founded in 1862 by Charles 

Dickens, Arthur Conan Doyle, and others to study 

paranormal mysteries.

The first book introduces Anna Van Housen, a young 

woman living in Jazz Age New York, who may be the 

illegitimate daughter of the greatest magician who ever lived

—Harry Houdini. Anna certainly has his talent. She is an 

expert illusionist. What no one knows is Anna actually has 

supernatural gifts.

Then a young man discovers Anna’s abilities and introduces 

her to members of a secret society, who are eager to study 

her powers and help her learn the truth about herself.

I’m not sure who to tell you about here because I’m actually 

two people rolled into one. As a responsible mother of 

teens, I show one persona to the world. That person is 

driven, conservative and level headed. But the other part of 

me just never grew up. She is rebellious, impulsive and 

It’s hard being both these people. They’re often at odds.
The mother part of me knows I should put a cap on how 

many animals we take in. The teen part of me wants to save 

them all. We have five cats and two dogs. Who do you think 

is winning?
Even now. The mother part wants to make a meatloaf, 

mashed potatoes, and a tossed salad. The teen part wants 

to order a pizza, work on my website and check my 


Luckily, though my two halves don’t always agree, both of 

us live happily in Portland, Oregon, with a husband and too 

many animals. And we both love to write and write and write.
