If you’ve been enjoying the A Discovery of Witches television show and want to know more about executive producer and author, Deborah Harkness, and the world she’s created, you’re in the right place. Welcome to the All Souls world. We’re glad you’re here.

Meet Deborah Harkness, Executive Producer for the A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES television show, author of the international best-selling All Souls series about the Bishop and De Clermont families, and history professor:


Her career in fiction began when she started to wonder “if there really are witches and vampires, what do they do for a living?”  Her first novel, A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES, was the unexpected answer to that question. Click through for more about Deb.   


If you’re enjoying the television show and want more, we have some suggestions for you…

1. You can read the books that inspired and shaped the television show:



Season One of the television show is based upon the story and events in Book #1 in the All Souls Series, A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES, and Season Two is based on SHADOW OF NIGHT, Book #2. 

Want to get a jump on Season 3 of A Discovery of Witches tv? Keep reading–book #3 is THE BOOK OF LIFE. If you’re enjoying the story, you can roll right into TIME’S CONVERT, the fourth book in the All Souls Series and  Deb is hard at work on Book #5.  There’s also a companion guide, THE WORLD OF ALL SOULS, that’s a deep dive into the history, legend, magic and science of the first three books.

You may be able to find all of these books through your local library, or you can purchase them from your local brick and mortar bookstore, your favorite online retailer, or here on Bookshop
