Magic Meets Science in Natalie J. Damschroder’s latest novel, Heavy Metal, which explores the world of Goddesses, Magic and Metallurgy in her Urban Fantasy sequel.
Damschroder, who grew up in Massachusetts and Connecticut and who set a portion of her latest high-stakes novel near Mystic, will be in town to sign copies of her Goddesses Rising trilogy at locally owned independent bookstore Bank Square Books. Riley, the heroine of HEAVY METAL, finds herself in a down-and-dirty car chase in Mystic and up the coast as she runs from a determined and frightening enemy.
“I grew up on the beaches here,” Damschroder says, “and I keep revisiting the area in my books as a way to keep in touch with my childhood. Not that my childhood contained many car chases.” She is excited to finally be able to return to the area to meet readers at her booksigning and other authors at this weekend’s Fiction Fest, a conference held by the Connecticut chapter of Romance Writers of America.
Meet up with Natalie:
Friday, September 20th – 7pm, Bank Square Books, 53 W. Main Street, Mystic, CT 06355
Saturday, September 21st – Connecticut Romance Writers of America Fiction Fest

The world is not what Riley Kordek imagined. On the run from those who’ve targeted her, all Riley wants is a chance to figure out her new ability to bend metal’s energy. When a hot guy who knows more than he should helps her escape her attackers, she thinks she might’ve found someone who can lead her to the answers she needs.
Three years ago, Sam Remington walked away from his employer and the woman he loved, and now, all he’s looking to do is fill the gaping hole left behind. Except, when Sam takes Riley to the Society for Goddess Education and Defense, the stakes rise beyond what either of them could have imagined.
After being alone for so long, falling for Sam would be far too easy for Riley—and far too painful, once his old flame calls needing his help. Worse, Riley uncovers a plot with disastrous ramifications not only for herself, but for Sam and the people he loves—and potentially every goddess in the country.
