What Hitler Thought of Miss Havana

Those who have reviewed the Miss Havana novels are always taken by how evil and divisive she can be. In fact, many readers don't know who to root for, Lucifer or Miss Havana. So, I asked myself, what would an evil person from history think of her. You'll love the answer, and here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQHjfr6kT9E&feature=youtu.be.

 Oh, Heavens, Miss Havana! Blurb: Having performed a single selfless act, Miss Havana finds herself on probation in heaven. After many missteps, she discovers she still retains the powers she had as The Queen of Darkness, and realizes she’s on probation as much to keep her from joining forces with her daughter, The Princess of Darkness, as anything else. The Brazilian, a large black man with a dreadlocks beard who waxes regularly, is her “guide,” but she ignores his advice until he’s taken off her case. Guideless and in a foreign environment, she consorts with evil spirits from her former realm, especially Waldo, a shadow creature so named because he’s so hard to find. She acquires a copy of “The Angels Guide to Earth,” comes to believe she is the Angel of Death, and returns to the surface as an advice columnist and assassin. She wreaks havoc before God intervenes for a final showdown...which, as it turns out, isn’t as final as most would hope.

 The Substitute Blurb:  Miss Havana’s public persona was far from the truth because, in her capacity as substitute teacher, the small community where she lived knew her as the breathtakingly beautiful young woman who demanded every student learn, but in her private life, ostensibly caring for aging parents in Chicago, she raced through the lives of powerful men, leaving a wake of destruction…and a deep desire for revenge. Little did she realize her conflicted life would end in a chaotic death at an early age, and to eternal conflict with the devil. The surprise ending will leave the reader stunned and gasping for more.

 The Training Bra Blurb: This is an outrageously funny comedy that will leave the reader in tears of laughter. Starting out as an innocent young girl, Miss Havana slowly creeps toward the evil side of life, and is murdered before her eighteenth birthday. In death, she re-connects with her daughter, Lilith, the supreme ruler of hell. She is tested severely, and is then given an assignment that will lead to the enslavement of mankind. Driven by ambition, Miss Havana plots the overthrow of Lilith while expanding her knowledge of her former kingdom, especially relative to her interactions with three of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. She conspires with her ex-mate, Lucifer, to overthrow Lilith, while appearing to following orders. Miss Havana re-gains her throne, only to be double-crossed by the conniving Lucifer, who introduces her to spiritual death the hard way. Instead of unending death; however, God intervenes for most unusual reasons, and assigns an entirely different mission.

The Trophy Wife Blurb: Lucifer’s rage simmers until he kills Miss Havana out of revenge, but God intervenes to save her. God places her spirit in a dying six-year-old child, who becomes a flawed but beautiful high school teacher, and Lucifer sends the Princess of Darkness, Lilith, to haunt Lily, one of Miss Havana’s students. Lilith rains comical torment on Miss Havana. Natural enemies, Lilith and Miss Havana ratchet up the level of destructiveness as they discover more of their underworld power…until murder becomes an option. Despite dips into horror and tragedy, the novel is a hilarious romp through heaven and hell. God continues to help Miss Havana, frustrating Lucifer and Lilith enough to char the pages. Even so, Miss Havana’s journey toward happiness is fraught with peril, and she finds inner faith and strength along the way.

Thanks for reading,

Hi Tina. This one took a little longer than most due to technical issues with the subtitles. It's kind of a trial balloon. I am thinking of a series of novels where Miss Havana plays the part of Eva Braun, Eve, and other infamous women. Just imagine all the trouble she could get her men into.
