Interview with Elle James, Author of Voodoo for Two and Giveaway!

Please give a warm welcome to Elle James, who is visiting the virtual offices to chat about her latest release, Voodoo for Two.  Elle also brought along an awesome prize pack, so be sure to enter after the interview!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.

[Elle James] A former IT professional, I now write full-time, penning edge of the seat adventures. I love traveling, snow-skiing, boating, or riding my ATV.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about Voodoo for Two?

[Elle James] Be careful what you wish for… Determined to marry the most eligible bachelor in the parish to save her family, Lucie LeBieu turns a love bug loose to cast its Voodoo spell.

What she doesn’t count on is hitting two targets—the golden boy congressional candidate, Eric Littington and her Cajun-hot ex, Ben Boyette. She has to undo the spell in order to set things straight before she falls back in bed—and in love—with a certain down and dirty heartbreaker.

Undercover investigator Ben Boyette is on special assignment to discover who is threatening Littington when he runs across his old flame, Lucie, cooking up trouble. Again. And when threats turn deadly, Lucie is caught in the middle. Can Ben find a way to protect the politician from falling victim and himself from falling for the irresistible bayou temptress?

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?

[Elle James] I wanted to see some of the same characters from VOODOO ON THE BAYOU in this story and give the Voodoo Queen’s granddaughter a shot at concocting a potion that would backfire on her. Seemed appropriate that she arms a bug with a hex and her ex is undercover as a bug exterminator.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words best describe Lucie?

[Elle James] Desperate Voodoo Novice

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If Ben had a theme song, what would it be?

[Elle James] Bruno Mars – Locked out of Heaven

For too loooonnnnnnggg, For too loooonnnnnnggg…
(Now is that song stuck in your head? I love it!)

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name one thing Lucie is never without.

[Elle James] Her friends

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things will you never find in Ben’s bedroom?

[Elle James] Floral pillows, a television (he can find better entertainment), pajamas (hehehe)

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is Lucie’s greatest regret?

[Elle James] Sending Ben away seven years ago.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What are your greatest creative influences?

[Elle James] My sister Delilah Devlin, my writing friends that I sprint with, travel!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things do you need in order to write?

[Elle James] Diet Dr. Pepper, a computer, my character sketches (mostly because I can’t remember names worth a darn)

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is the last book that you read that knocked your socks off?

[Elle James] Shattered Souls by Delilah Devlin

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you had to pick one book that turned you on to reading, which would it be?

[Elle James] Little House on the Prairie. Loved living in Laura Ingalls Wilder’s world.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?

[Elle James] Traveling, reading, four-wheeling, boating, playing with my dogs.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How can readers connect with you?

[Elle James] ….escape with elle

About Voodoo For Two:

Be careful what you wish for…

Determined to marry the most eligible bachelor in the parish to save her family, Lucie LeBieu turns a “love bug” loose to cast its Voodoo spell. What she doesn’t count on is hitting two targets—the golden boy congressional candidate, and her Cajun-hot ex. To set things right, she must undo the spell before she falls into bed—-and back in love—with a certain down and dirty heartbreakin’ cop.

Undercover investigator Ben Boyette is back in Louisiana on special assignment when he runs across his old flame, brewing up trouble as usual. But when hometown threats turn deadly, Lucie’s life is on the line. Determined to protect both her and his politician assignment from falling victim to a murderer, Ben finds that he’s the one who’s falling hard…for the irresistible bayou temptress.

Elle’s Bio:

Elle James spent twenty years in South Central Texas, ranching horses, cattle, goats, ostriches and emus. A former IT professional, retired Army and Air Force Reservist, she’s proud to be writing full-time, penning intrigues and paranormal adventures that keep her readers on the edge of their seats or laughing out loud. Now, living in northwest Arkansas, she’s given up wrangling cattle and exotic birds to wrangle her muses, a malti-poo and a yorkie. When she’s not at her computer, she’s traveling, out snow skiing, boating, or riding her four-wheeler, dreaming up new stories.
