This Poisoned Ground
Just after dawn on the hottest day East Providence has endured in a hundred summers, Todd, a bit of a ladies’ man, finds his prized rose bush dead. This is only the first in an ever-more-ominous series of events, and someone…or something…is trying to invade his home.
In the tradition of The Fall of the House of Usher, Ligeia, and Aura comes a gripping tale of love, lust…and regret.
After an incident on a Maine apple orchard, precocious teen Scree is left with a never-ending list of chores and her brother’s baby, who she is expected to raise. Even as life with baby becomes all she’d dreamed, Dali-esque visions begin to leach through the gold paint. Bad Apple is a dark, surreal ride that proves not all that proves not all things in an orchard are safe to pick.
