Carolyn's new story A Praline for Pepe
in Festive Mayhem 2, an anthology of holiday themed short stories by writers of color.
The year is 1920. Corruption, bootleggers and the Klan are part of everyday life in Aronsville, Indiana. As an African American teenager, Carrie McFarland knows she must watch her step carefully. She's already in hot water for putting a Love Hex under the pillow of the wealthy white man who seduced and abandoned her. Carrie hopes she's put the past behind her when she lands a job cleaning house for an eccentric Spiritualist. But when she foresees the death of a guest at her boss's weekly séance, Carrie finds herself accused of murder. Intent on keeping her community from being torched by the KKK in retaliation for the slaying, Carrie enlists the help of two friends—a handsome young reverend and a notorious bootlegger. To uncover the truth, she will have to search for answers in the dark and dangerous world of spiritual frauds, gangsters and con men.
