In 2012, my first novel, The Belvedere Club was published. I was touched and honored by the wonderful response.
Today, I’m excited to let you know about another novel, Bayou Nights, that has just been released on Kindle and will be in book format January 10th.
* * *
Bayou Nights is a novel of vengeance, carried out in the terrifying environment of corrupt politics, social injustice, and the exotic eroticism of Voodoo.
Set in the months prior to Hurricane Katrina, Claire Rivet, a Baton Rouge Assistant District Attorney, attempts to connect the rape and murder of a young woman to the similar attack on her when she was ten. Claire is certain the same person is responsible and she lives only to bring her attacker to justice.
In the Louisiana bayou, her quest is dangerously compromised by Mamma Anna, a voodoo priestess who lures Claire into a dark Voodoo practice, magie noire, reserved for those willing to give up everything for revenge.
When the lines between justice and revenge start to blur, Claire struggles to choose the right path, not knowing that Mamma Anna hasn’t left her one.
I hope you will enjoy reading this thriller as much as I enjoyed writing it.

WELCOME to my new website. An update was long overdue and so I finally got to it (well, my elf did).
I will be using this site to introduce you to my books, offer you short stories, and introduce you to some fine artists and writers.
As my bio suggests, I’m eclectic in almost everything I do that’s why my new blog is titled: Myths, Munchies, and Madness. Three of my favorite things.
