Madame Lilly, Voodoo Priestess by Dormaine G
Odara, a Creole girl, grew up in New Orleans during the late 1800s wealthy and privileged. She was reared in the ways of placage in order to be a common-law wife for a wealthy man. She was against the ways of placage wanting a life of her own to explore. That was until she met the man of her dreams, Mr. Henry Nicolas. Henry was smart, cultured and wealthy; so perfect that Odara could not help but fall madly in love. Sadly, she didn’t meet the real Henry Nicolas until their first night of marriage where his true wicked self was revealed.
After suffering twelve years of misery, enduring cruelty of the worst kind, she grew into a vengeful woman consumed with only hate. Odara sought revenge against Henry, a man she reviled, through the old ways, voodoo. Hence, Madame Lilly was born, but it came at a price even beyond her comprehension.
Through anger and the dark arts, Madame Lilly called forth vengeful spirits willing to do her bidding. By raising such vicious creatures, she lost a part of herself; that part called humanity. Through that loss, she gained a piece of their essence, an essence unknown to most. This wickedness allowed her to unleash their wrath upon mankind, but it was more chaotic and ferocious than she could have ever imagined. So will Lilly continue what she started or lay to rest the Hell she brought forth?
I was born in New York and lived there with my family until I was eight when we moved to Mississippi. Ten years later, I went to college at Xavier University in New Orleans, LA for about two years then moved to Lynn, MA for life experience. I decided to move back to NY on my own where I finally became a registered nurse. I worked there for four years then decided to do travel nursing for three years. I finally stopped traveling while in Colorado to live near family. Soon after I met my husband and have been here ever since.
I may be a nurse by profession, but I’m an author at heart. I have been writing stories for many years, both in my head and on paper. I’ve always had a love for books ever since spending Saturdays at the library as a young child. Within a book, the mind can travel to worlds of the imagination and the beyond without limitations. I finally took the plunge and published my first novel last year, a young adult urban fantasy titled “Connor” then an adult horror short story titled “Madame Lilly, Voodoo Priestess” this year. Madame Lilly, Voodoo Priestess: Soulless (book 2) is set to be released July of this year. These are the beginning of many more books to come.
