At www.jewellparkerrhodes.com - you'll find details about my new voodoo book, YELLOW MOON. VOODOO DREAMS I wrote 15 years ago and its still selling! Its about Marie Laveau and the novel was selected as a "B&N Discover Great New Authors" series. A dance about Marie Laveau (based upon my novel) will be at the NYC Ailey theater in Jan. 2009. I've even done a play version.

I am now working on a trilogy about a desecendant of Marie Laveau--see VOODOO SEASON and YELLOW MOON. Recent reviews for YELLOW MOON are below! Hope you check my books out!

I've been writing about Marie Laveau for over forty years. Its made a wonderful difference in my life!

REVIEWS FOR YELLOW MOON

PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY:
"In Rhodes's superb sequel to 2006's Voodoo Season, a wazimamoto, or African vampire, stalks Dr. Marie Laveau, a 21st-century doctor, modern voodoo practitioner and descendant of the legendary Voodoo Queen of New Orleans... .Rhodes includes an informative author's note about the evolution of theAfrican vampire as a response and a warning about racist brutality and cultural vampirism, giving some cultural weight to this hypnotic thriller.

KIRKUS REVIEWS
"...Rhodes puts some earnest thought into the city's dark history and comes up with a satisfying and eerie story that lies somewhere between the work of Anne Rice and James Lee Burke... . The visceral descriptions of supernatural possessions are matched by equally vivacious sex scenes. A spooky, sexy novel about things that go bump in the night."

BOOKLIST:
"Fans of vampire and New Orleans...will find this an unexpected and thought-provoking treat."

Thanks, Guy! I can tell from your profile that you're really into Marie Laveau. On my web site, is a link to a special issue on "Women and Voodoo"-- there's even going to be a panel on Marie Laveau at the PCA/American Studies conference in New Orleans this April. Cheers.

My books are fiction--VOODOO DREAMS, VOODOO SEASON, and YELLOW MOON. HURRICANE will be out in April 2011. For nonfiction, try VOODOO QUEEN by Martha Ward and/or A NEW ORLEANS VOUDOU PRIESTESS by Carolyn Long.

Thank you. Will do. I bought your series on Amazon used. Are you a Voudoisant (practicing)? Just curious. I use Paket Kongo in my healing work and work with the ancestral spirits and feel very close to them. I wish everyone saw how beautiful it is. I am a healing therapist and do shaman work, energy work, bodywork, spiritual counseling, psychic soul work and herbal remedies. Just as an FYI :-).So glad to see you doing well in your publishing.
