Outskirts Press author, C.J. Thomas, is taking her latest book, Night of the Snake Witch, on tour – a virtual tour, that is. She will be featured on several blogs over the weeks and months ahead so keep your eyes peeled to learn more about her and her book.
Luckily for us, C.J. was kind enough to answer a few questions as the tour was getting started so that we can give you a sneak peek into the mind of the creator of Night of the Snake Witch.
OP: Tell us a little bit about Night of the Snake Witch. What is it about?
CJT: Alexandra Kendall is an executive for a pipeline company. She is also in love with Joe Larkin but can’t commit to marriage. When Joe drives Alex to Louisiana to check on an old Contractor friend Lester Kierbo, they find treachery. His daughter Ateara has taken things into her own hands and disappeared into the Bayou.
When Alex leaves for the Dakota’s Joe follows unaware that both of them will be caught up in Atear’s Voodoo and the supernatural. They find out about the thief ring on the pipeline and close in on it’s leader their lives will dangling by a thread.
OP: Why did you decide to write this story?
CJT: I was sitting in my office looking out the window watching the heavy machinery unload the 42″ pipe. The banding that held the pipe to the rail cars was picked up by the large machine and taken to the end of the yard and dumped on the growing pile. As I watched the banding settle, it began to slither. (in my mind of course) That was the birth of Night of the Snake Witch.
OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?
CJT: Anyone over 17 who likes paranormal suspense.
OP: What is special about your book? What differentiates it from other books in the same category?
CJT: My experience on the Northern Border Pipeline. Most places in the book are real. People are from my imagination.
OP: Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more?
CJT: Yes. I have two other books out under another name. I just finished an adult paranormal suspense and working on the sequel about the sex slave trade.
OP: Thanks for your time, C.J.! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!
