Catfish Joe is a poor, black, street preacher who has opinions about everything from women's hair to Machiavelli. He is always helping people if with unorthodox methods and he audits courses at University of Pennsylvania. He is a chunk of life and southern wisdom, a florid, engaging and tough character. Double, Double, Toil & Trouble is about three fat, rambunctious married socialites who are wild as March Hares. They pick up gigolos, have affairs and drink to every occasion. Myrtle and Gladys are the nicer ones: Lavinia is like a tigress. They even visit a Baptist church to get in touch with their spiritual side. They are described as being more bitchy than Macbeth's three witches.

About the author (2010)

Contrary to popular rumors CAROL ANN was not raised by wolves. Her parents, Alec, and Jerylyn, encouraged her early forays into the visual arts, painting, sculpting, and drawing. In the eighties she was a fashion photographer and then, having found out that praisese is not legal tender she moved on to a wide variety of jobs with the exception of grave digging and prostitution. She came into writing at an later age, 53. She got a degree in English and anthropology which was as beneficial as getting a bullet in the head. She will continue to write until something wonderful happens. To have the World on a string is her aspiration.
