Mysteries and mysticism.
Sarah Doucette Jean-Louis is a former therapist turned detective. And she’s got a body on her doorstep.
After author Myra Jolivet reads to us from The Holiday Murder Melange, we talk about the influence of Creole culture in Sarah’s life, what Pushed Times Chewing Pepper means (that’s the title of the first full length novel in this series), and the courage and tenacity it takes to be a writer.
This week’s mystery author
At six years old Myra was a poet and playwright, holding SRO productions in her Berkeley, California backyard. That led to a 20+ year career in TV news, politics and corporate communications.
When her children went off to college she gathered the nerve to begin a series of cozy, paranormal murder mysteries, the Sarah Doucette Jean-Louis mysteries. Sarah’s life is a blend of Myra’s own California and Louisiana Creole cultures that have helped her create a world of mysticism, murder and humor.
