An Excerpt from “Saving Christmas”
The following is from my novel, “Saving Christmas”, a story about romance and third chances.

“Philandering husbands and home wrecking, boob job sporting, ass implant sashaying girlfriends have special seats in Hell if you asked Willow MacKenzie. Right at the moment, she needed either confession with Father Mark or a couple of action-ready Voodoo dolls. Maybe confession plus Voodoo dolls with super long, extra pointy corsage pins.
It wouldn’t be the first time Voodoo-based revenge came up in a New Orleans confessional.
Pins stuck into a fake voodoo doll had to carry less weight in confession than a double homicide that featured Linus and Jocelynne Freaking Husband Stealing Ardoine.
Of course, Willow was a lapsed Episcopalian and not Catholic, and she definitely wasn’t a practitioner or follower of the Voodoo religion. There was the threat that Father Mark might squeal to her mother, Lettie Arceneaux, the Godmother and Grand Marshall of St. Hilda’s Episcopal Church Altar Guild. Besides, if she arrested for killing Linus, Lettie would have to raise the boys by herself.”
