Welcome Aboard!

Updated: Jul 17, 2022

Hi! I'm Harry DeMaio I'm delighted to welcome you to my new website "" The "Tavi" is Octavius Bear, all 17 published books of him ( Number 18 is finished and coming out in April 2023) and I'm working on Number 19. The "ghost" is Lady Juliet Armstrong, Baroness Crestwell. 3 anthologies of short stories, novellas and novelettes featuring a smart, sassy, silly, brash and bold spirit and her capricious canine companion, Pookie, also deceased and a very live Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. You'll find descriptions of each book in The Bookstore pages and if you care, there's a short bio of me. There are also links to 4 booksellers where you can procure these literary jewels. Welcome. I hope you enjoy this site and my preposterous output.
