~ Ruby Dominguez Delivers a Spine Tingling 17th Century of American Dark History to her Readers in Her Newest Fiction Horror/Romance Screenplay, THE PERUKE MAKER – The Salem Witch Hunt Curse, Published by Outskirts Press
THE PERUKE MAKER – The Salem Witch Hunt Curse is a compelling and suspenseful story that focuses on the infamous Salem Witch Hunt Curse, an ancient and evil practice which is unearthed from necromancy and violates the course of natural events in a modern day world.
Inspired by true events, The Peruke Maker is a well researched screenplay about the spiritual and emotional journeys of Bridget Cane, a stunning 17th century red haired beauty, and Sarah, a thoroughly 21st century woman. Their paths become inextricably bound across time and space as Thomas Cane’s vengeful curse continues to threaten the virtuous during this relentless quest for an avenger of innocent blood.
Like the book’s 21st century time traveler, Sarah, the author’s readers are introduced to this earlier, frightening world by the startling image of Bridget Cane, scantily clad, frozen in fear, her own imminent death portended by the Banshee’s bloodcurdling cries, set against the background of a witch hunt that has reached a feverish pitch in a society where the fear of sorcery and the devil is as real as God.
The story builds with heightened tension and conflict and fittingly ends in present day New York City when Sarah’s journey ultimately comes full circle as Michael’s love for her triumphs over the evil she must face in 17th century Salem. The suspense leading to her final redemption climaxes in a dramatic and magical act of rebirth which transcends the grave at the exact stroke of midnight on the Autumnal Equinox.
This is a beautiful illustration which captures the very essence of what this story is all about: love and forgiveness.~
How the story came to be:
An ink creation born out of a mystical dream after trying on a 100% hand-tied human hair wig that I purchased online as described to be harvested from a reliable and youthful donor.
I woke-up from the dream in shivers, seemingly reliving a dark history of a young woman’s horrifying fate named Bridget and her father’s (The Peruke Maker) vindictive quest for justice beyond the grave.
In Salem, Massachusettes from three centuries ago, the Peruke Maker’s Shop lay hidden behind a forgotten and abandoned room of an old crematorium built-up with dust and cobwebs with a finished white wig still sits by the boarded up window to this day.
Wefts of yak, goat, horse and human hair, fishhook-like needles, pomade, powder and a wooden head are laid down on a work table wherein a pair of rusty, blood-stained scissors, entwined with strands of Bridget’s red hair eerily rests by the wall mirror.
I personally have decided to travel to Salem, Massachusettes on a book tour this October 2009 and investigate the existence of the Peruke Maker’s Shop, and retrace his daughter, Bridget’s agonizing ordeal in Gallows Hill.
