Pushed Times, Chewing Pepper by Myra Jolivet

At the intersection of a brain tumor and an empty nest, I met courage. Having survived both, I resolved to do something I  wanted since my days of writing about the latest fire, political scandal or school board meeting---I wrote a book. Many former TV news types write books, but this is different. I tried to  bring to life the eclectic beauty of the Louisiana Creole culture against the backdrop of northern California. My characters are racially diverse, my murder mystery has humor and connects opposing cultures, conceptions and coasts.
