A tale of love, magic, jealousy, and secrets. Toulou escapes from the Mississippi cotton fields in the 1930s to pursue her dream of singing the blues in Memphis. When she meets a rambling blues man, the notorious Ace of Spades, her dreams are realized in a way she could never have imagined. Written in vivid language that captures the blues, Hoodoo Love is a major debut.


TOULOU – A young black woman who runs away from the cotton fields of Mississippi to the bluesy streets of Memphis. In Stature she is tiny, but her presence makes her seem taller than she is.

CANDYLADY – A former slave and the Hoodoo Madame of Beale Street with a timeless essence, yet with a quick tongue of a youngin’.

ACE OF SPADES – A young, sexy, ramblin’ bluesman with a “behind like a caboose” and hands that can play the blues out of any woman’s back.

JIB – Toulou’s older brother, a born-again Christian missionary
