Janet Foret Lococo, is a full-blooded Cajun, born, reared and still residing on the banks of Bayou Lafourche in Lafourche Parish. Lafourche Parish is located in the lower most area of southern Louisiana and is commonly called “Bayou Country.”
Always a good storyteller, she has succeeded in humorously describing her life and her experiences as a Cajun that began in the 1930′s in her first book, CAJUN WOMAN: Pure & Simple. Born and raised in a home with no electricity (no radio or television or lighting), no indoor plumbing (no bathroom. Learn about out-houses), none of what we now consider necessities. But, we Cajuns had a lot of love and a lot of fun…
The release of her second book, CAJUN BRIDE: Venus & Mars Collide, is a delightfully funny book about real life collisions she experienced during forty-four of her forty-eight years of marriage. She thought she’d be the perfect wife; he’d be the perfect husband; and any children of this union would also be perfect. What a wake-up call for this Cajun.
Her third book, CAJUN MOM: The Witch and the Kids, was released on October 31, 2007. Yes, it was released on Halloween, and rightfully so. This wonderfully funny book tells the parenting stories as the author (The Witch) shares hysterical stories about her experiences raising three children.
These books fulfill her dream of publishing and attest to her fierce pride in her full-blooded Cajun heritage. She has always danced to her own music, and never worried about what others would think or say. She wears no masks, in life or in her books, as she tells it like it is.
Her first novel. LOST INNOCENCE is a work of fiction. It’s HOT, FUNNY, and for a change, NONE of it is true. A coming-of-age story that accurately depicts life in the bayou country during the 1950s.

It was followed a year later with the release of GUILTY PLEASURE! It is the sequel to Lost Innocence, it is just as hot! Just as spicy! A great love story. Ebook version is available on Amazon.com and Smashwords for $2.99.
