Friday Pen pals with Camille Faye

Blurb: Voodoo Butterfly:
When twenty-five-year old Sophie Nouveau inherits her grandmother's voodoo shop she knows nothing about voodoo. Or her family's history of Mind Changers who have the power to change evil people good. To complicate matters, someone doesn't want Sophie in New Orleans and sends a series of death threats to scare her away from her new enchanted life.

Tipped off by her grandmother's ghost, Sophie realizes her mind changing spell's been missing one magic ingredient: true love. If Sophie cannot experience transformative love, she cannot make her spell work, and she will be powerless to fight back when confronted by the one who wants her dead.

Bio: Camille Faye:

Camille Faye lives in Missouri, loves on her family, and writes during the baby’s nap time. She grew up in a haunted house, which sparked her fascination with the paranormal. Before becoming a writer, she reported for an NBC affiliate and taught writing at universities in Missouri and Illinois. She found the muse for her debut novel, Voodoo Butterfly, during a family trip to New Orleans where she dreamt of a woman who had the power to change evil people good. The Northwest Houston RWA named her novel, Voodoo Butterfly, a 2013 Lone Star Contest finalist. Camille's stories are inspired by her travels to 27 countries and counting! Follow her journey at

Character Interview--Voodoo Butterfly Blog Tour

What is your name and do you have a nickname?

My mother had always insisted on calling me Sophia because she thought it was a beautiful, old-fashioned name. It means “wisdom,” she’d tell me. But at school, kids started calling me Sophie and the name just kind of stuck.

Where were you born? Where have you lived since then? Where do you currently call home?

I had never really ventured outside of my hometown of Saint Louis. That is until I inherited a New Orleans voodoo shop unexpectedly. And I say "unexpectedly" because I didn't know one single thing about voodoo. Or my family's secret power.

What is your biggest fear? Fact: I'm twenty-five years old and afraid of the dark. Fact: I need to get a grip and grow up. LOL. I don't know...Ever since I was little, I just can't seem to overcome this fear. My grandma says fear of the dark is one of the major obstacles blocking my spells. Since moving to New Orleans, I've learned that the women in my family are Mind Changers, specialized voodoo priestesses who have the ability to change evil people good. But I'm struggling to access my power.

What or who is the greatest love of your life?

You'll have to read my story to find that out. But I will tell you this: I don't trust people easily, so it's a big deal for me to fall in love.

What would you do to save someone you love?

This specific conundrum comes up in my book, so I can't spoil it. Let me just say that I would go to the ends of this world--and into the next--in order to save those that I love.
