Product description


"Publishers Weekly"[A] suspenseful horror story....Readers who savor supernatural menace will enjoy its edge.

From the Author

WITHER, my debut novel, is a nightmare in progress.
WITHER is a novel of supernatural terror. I've always felt suspense works best when you have sympathetic, likeable characters in dire situations. By setting a tale in the supernatural genre, I have the added bonus - assuming readers are willing to suspend disbelief - of extending dire situations into the realm of nightmares and imagination made real. Truth may be stranger than fiction, but nightmares are often more frightening than reality. And it is supremely hard not to 'believe' a nightmare while it is in progress.

I also believe horror can best harness the reader's willingness to suspend disbelief when the writer takes care to root his nightmare in a known quantity, a bit of history, a dash of legend, a glimpse of myth. In other words, give the reader a valid starting point for the flight of dark fancy. WITHER has its roots in the Salem witch trials of the late Seventeenth Century. From there, WITHER explores the arcane world of witchcraft and asks the question: What if this evil coven of witches did not die when they were supposedly executed? What if, over the course of three centuries, they have grown and been transformed into dark, predatory creatures with only the vaguest memories of their human origin, if indeed they were ever truly human?

WITHER is set in a present-day college town, Windale, Massachusetts, where three of its residents have been chosen as prey by the ancient coven: a young girl, a college co-ed, who happens to be a practicing wiccan, and a pregnant college professor.

Think of WITHER as a nightmare in progress. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
