Denise N. Tapscott is my Woman In Horror today! She might only have one novel up on Amazon, Gypsy Kisses and Voodoo Wishes, but it's fantastic.
Gypsy Kisses And Voodoo Wishes, by Denise N Tapscott, is a great Dark Fantasy, Thriller, Suspense, and Horror tale that you will love! Don't miss out on the joy of reading this super novel. I strongly suggest you read this book.
Can any good transpire when Gypsy magic collides with Voodoo Magic? For Voodoo High-priestess Grandmother Zenobia, the answer is unclear.
1890 Carrefour Parish, Louisiana. A self-proclaimed Voodoo high-priestess with a mysterious past, Grandmother Zenobia conceals her magical powers from her teenage grandson Will. She wants to live a “normal” family life, including savory down home Southern dinners and festive church gatherings. When Will reveals he’s fallen head-over-heels in love for Syeira, Grandmother is overjoyed. In her overzealous excitement over the possibility of a future wedding, Grandmother fails to find out a crucial piece of information. Syeira is not a New Orleans local, she’s a gypsy from the Camlo tribe.
On the other side of the bayou, Queen Patia Camlo, Syeira’s mother, is furious when Syeira reveals her relationship with Will. To the Camlo tribe, the Gypsy way is the only way. Desperate to put an end to their romance, Patia casts a spell so effective that even the great Grandmother Zenobia can’t fix the damage it creates.
Grandmother Zenobia is forced to decide how much of a sacrifice she’s willing to make to retaliate against Patia, as well as avenge her family without losing her own soul.
Denise's Amazon bio:
Denise was born and raised in California. She left her heart in San Francisco, but somehow managed to leave her soul in New Orleans. When she's not creating and cultivating her characters, she enjoys dining on spicy tuna rolls, sharing a bottle of red wine with friends and watching the latest flick (especially scary films). From time to time this radiant left-handed pirate will even challenge others to a fencing match or two. But, watch out. This Gemini is determined to win!
Often referencing her favorite quotes, below is Denise's favorite motto by Hans Christian Andersen:
"Just living is not enough...one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."
