IndieView with Malcolm Campbell, authors of Conjure Woman’s Cat | The IndieView.

MRdenConjure Woman’s Cat is a 1950s-era story about a cat named Lena and her conjure woman named Eulalie fighting with common sense and folk magic against the injustices of a small, Florida Panhandle town strongly influenced by the KKK. The twin flames of hoodoo and the blues are major themes in a story in which the primary characters—when referring to the white world at large—can honestly say “nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen, nobody knows my sorrow.” But as that old song suggests, folks are up and folks are down and heaven lies both at the road’s end and in the close-held moments of family and friends in every day’s twilight.”

Frankly, I don’t know whether readers read interviews or not, but I had fun answering the questions on this one. Interview questions are often catalysts for authors, allowing them to think about what they did naturally but haven’t put into words yet in explaining it to others.
