LOCAL AUTHOR NIGHT - Dwaines Lawless

Friday, October 2 at 7PM

Austin Novelist
speaking & signing
Cajun Moon

We love our local authors here at BookPeople and tonight we're excited to welcome one of the best to share their new work. Dwaines Lawless will share her new novel Cajun Moon. Join us for a wonderful night of literary camaraderie & fun!


Cochèmere. A Cajun nightmare and Celine is trapped inside it. Night after night, she's haunted by a hideous monster but she's not the only one it wants. A man is there. Someone she's never met. Or has she? Tormented, Celine seeks help from her mother and grandmother; two Cajun healers who know there's only one thing that will save Celine: tell her the ancient secrets even if it means revealing a centuries-old forbidden romance and unleashing a nightmare of revenge. Cajun Moon is a delicious gumbo of diverse families, cultures, history, tradition and lore spiced with the mystery of dreams.


Dwaines Lawless is a Cajun and like all Cajuns, loves telling a good story. Growing up in Welsh, Louisiana, she was always fascinated by the bayou tales told to her by her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Folk healing and Voodoo are all part of the rich tapestry of stories that are woven into her book, Cajun Moon. A UL-Lafayette graduate, art educator, itinerant teacher of the blind, mother and grandmother, she currently lives in Austin, TX with her husband John and returns to Louisiana as often as she can.
