The Curse Breaker of Cairo

Back Cover Blurb
There’s a curse at Club Cairene and it’s killing people.  Tangerine, the renowned Freelance Curse Breaker, is in Cairo to sort it out.  What at first appears to be just another routine job quickly becomes more complicated and more dangerous than even she had ever expected. Unfamiliar earth energies and shadowy characters block her every attempt to combat the curse. And then there’s that strikingly handsome man seen leaving the club after the latest victim falls prey to the curse. Tangerine cannot understand the peculiar sensual tingling that ripples through her body when he gazes into her eyes. Curse breakers don’t have to deal with purveyors of sexual energy, do they?
With the help of Club Cairene owner Leila, Tangerine sets off through the neighborhoods of exotic Cairo to track the origins of the curse and figure out a way to disarm it.  Also on her agenda is hunting down that very attractive, and possibly very evil, man.
Could the answer be found within the walls of the Cairo Museum? Or in a more pedestrian locale like a coffee shop? Where ever the solution lies, Tangerine must act quickly before the curse destroys a great deal more than just Club Cairene and the people around it.   

Why Egypt & Curses?
Ever since I studied ancient Egypt in elementary school, I have been fascinated with pyramids, tombs, and curses. I dreamed of one day visiting the land of the pharaohs and the Nile River.  Then in 2000, I had the opportunity to live and work there for a year. It was every bit as exotic and fascinating as I had hoped for.
Add that to growing up in Northern California, where learning to use tarot cards and tapping into auras is a normal part of extracurricular activities, and I had the perfect combination for a story.
I love the experience of being in a totally new culture and then incorporating those events into a travel story or a piece of fiction. It is always my hope that others will be able to feel some of the wonderment, and even a little bit of the exasperation, that occurs for a traveler in a new environment.
And even though I never did come face to face with a curse or a handsome man with unusual powers while living in Egypt, I am certain that it could all really happen.
