Bio

Marie has come a long way from the Louisiana marshes of her youth. These days, "The Smoky Velvet" sings the blues in elegant nightclubs around the world, but it was grand-mère's dying wish that sent Marie to the Kingdom of Sarawak, where an old evil had returned. Marie doesn't believe she can help, but only a fool didn't listen to grand-mère. Now memories of strange nursery rhymes she used to recite have begun flooding back. People called grand-mère a witch. Maybe Marie's got some witchcraft in her blood, too.
