The right name is important when working magic.

It is the night of the Spring Equinox, a time for beginnings, and Rommy Haward is in search of a new name. Remy isn't very happy about it, but he won't say no to his twin when goody-two-shoes Rommy asks him to help him to be naughty and work magic to find the name.

The Haward Mysteries is a set of Contemporary Fantasy, short stories and bargain priced novels full of magic and mystery with a side of CSI thrown in. Follow the Agatha Christie style whodunits of the novels, delve into the artfully rendered sorcerous science of the magical crimes and explore the enchanted world of the Haward Twins as they face supernatural trials in both their professional and private lives. Or enjoy a briefer, less investigative sortie into the twins lives in the short stories.

Rite Name was released at the Spring Equinox 2012 as a FREE gift for fans of the Haward Mysteries. Check out the other books using the series link.

"What's wrong?"

Remy's question came pretty quickly after the light went out and Rommy looked over to see a worried frown lit by moonlight on his twin's face. He didn't really know where to start, because he wasn't sure why he was so upset.

"It's not the name thing, is it?" Remy got it right as usual and Rommy nodded.

Remy sat up then and, leaning over Rommy, dismissed, "That was just Auntie Daisy. She has to be spooky one time every day."

"But she's right," Rommy confessed and felt instantly guilty as Remy's shock showed.

"You don't like being Rommy?" Remy checked and his voice was rather small.

Rommy sat up then as well and Remy looked away at his knees.

"Doesn't feel right," Rommy tried to explain what Auntie Daisy had told him to think about.

"But we're Rommy and Remy," his brother sounded lost and Rommy stuck an arm round him.

"I know, but I think it's wrong," Rommy sighed as the thought of it made him a little bit spikey inside also, kind of tingly as well, so he tried to explain again, "It's not like me not liking being called Romulus, I don't hate Rommy like that, but I think I have another name."

Remy looked at him then and he could see spikiness in his twin's eyes too, and he didn't like it either, but Auntie Daisy had only told him something that had been bothering him since the 'stopping stuff' had finished and the 'making magic' had started.

"Okay, what do you want to be called?" Remy asked with a shrug.

That was the thing Rommy had been thinking about since bedtime.

"Don't know," Rommy replied, sitting back, and he bit his lip when his brother scowled at him for that one.

"So what are we going to do about it?" Remy did not sound like he was in the mood to be patient.

It was Rommy's turn to look away then, because he had been thinking about it, but it would be naughty.
