Xulon Press Announces the Release of A Little Gumbo in Her Face
by Arleen Cerbone Faustina
Intrigue In The Big Easy
Novel Explores How The Power Of Family And Place Impacts Lives
New Orleans, the Big Easy, has always been an intriguing place.
Within the pages of Arleen Cerbone Faustina’s novel, A Little Gumbo in Her Face ($17.99, paperback, 978-1-5456-2284-1; $27.99, hard cover 978-1-5456-2285-8), readers will meet New Orleans psychiatrist Manon Benoit and FBI Agent Andy St. Julien.
Andy’s suspicions about Manon’s real ties to New Orleans, an Australian psychic’s predictions, unexpected twists in the FBI’s case, and the heady atmosphere of New Orleans herself all conspire to make the lovers’ journey a rocky one and threaten to expose the past that Manon’s mother sought to keep hidden.
“A Little Gumbo in Her Face explores how the power of family and place deeply affects ordinary lives, while gently introducing to mainstream readers the Louisiana Creoles, an ethnic group not widely understood outside of Louisiana,” the author states.
A former English teacher, Arleen Cerbone Faustina completed her doctoral studies in psychology at Tulane University. Her specialization in PTSD lends her writing authenticity and her love of New Orleans pervades the story. A Little Gumbo in Her Face is her debut novel.
