Just returned from NOLA and the annual Saints & Sinners GLBT Literary Conference. Great panels, readings, networking and fun. And decadence! Got to see my friend Lee Lynch inducted into the S&S Hall of Fame;

 Stefani Deoul had an invited reading at a reader’s home in the Bywater section of New Orleans – wonderful house, great neighbors, fun night andamazing hospitality;

A torrential thunderstorm trapped us at Cafe Du Monde on Sunday morning – not a bad place to be, with plenty of delious chickory coffee, beignets and enough powdered sugar to keep us on a high all day. I do LOVE New Orleans.

On the radio tonight May 6 – Oh my, hope I can stay up that late….perhaps a whole hour with me is a little much!!!!

Stefani Deoul’s The Carousel has gotten some great reviews at Just About Write.com and on Amazon.com

Anna Furtado in JustAboutWrite.com: ” The story is laced with characters that are both quirky and likeable. The mystery surrounding the carousel lady will keep the reader turning page after page, as will the desire to know if the town will succeed. This story, with its surprising lesbian twist, adds to the totality of the mystery itself. In the end, The Carousel is one of those stories that lingers long after the last page is turned—a story of redemption and a journey to wholeness—and one not to be missed. This tale is sure to find a special place in the reader’s heart.”

Things are heating up! Amazon.com lit up after a generous and amazingly wonderful review by novelist and film maker Shamim Sharif. Features on Stefani & The Carousel appeared in CentralNewJersey.com, Sussex Weekly, and much more.
