Indie author Myra Jolivet

Armed with the wisdom of Carl Jung, and psychic intuition, California family therapist Sarah Doucette Jean-Louis spends a year looking for love, counseling a stalker and surviving a plot to kill her. Sarah has Louisiana Creole roots. She can hold her liquor and make a mean gumbo.

She also has an aunt who talks to the dead and a mother who wants her married.

In Myra Jolivet‘s mystery “Pushed Times, Chewing Pepper” Sarah’s life changes during a four-day reunion in Louisiana with her judgmental family, including her nemesis Cousin Stacy.

It was the last place she expected to meet a man, but Michael’s perfect teeth and Armani-wearing buff-ness were irresistible. He was also visiting from the west coast — and even though Sarah’s Aunt Cat warns her that Michael is trouble, she refuses to listen and within months she and Michael are engaged.

And then things get real complicated, leading to some amateur spy work, a plot for pride and revenge, and then — murder.

There is a Creole expression, “pushed times make a monkey chew pepper.” It means that in difficult times, we do things that we ordinarily wouldn’t.

    Myra is as refreshing as her story telling. She obviously has a sense of humor and a positive outlook on life, putting a touch of sunshine in areas of darkness. I’m looking forward to her sequel!

    Listen to the interview and then read the book. Then, you get a sense of why Myra’s book is compelling to read. The book has the same conversational tone as Myra does. And in the interview, you get to hear her irrespressible laugh. There is no doubt that Myra Jolivet has the sould of a story teller.
