Writing In-Progress by
Exhumus: Dark history, True Crime
A 17th Century family builds a house in Salem, Massachusetts where they dream of a new life in a new world, but their legacy will be forever tainted when they play a sinister role in the execution of alleged witches.
When I began diving head first into my family ancestry is was due to the discovery of my brother Spencer that we descended from a witch in Salem but also a noteworthy witch-killer. Years have passed and I've discovered more about our history and place in America than I ever knew was possible. I've traveled across New England as well as the states of Illinois and Kansas in search of the answer to one question; what remains of that family 300 years ago who, on the spark of Anglo-American history on this continent, committed the most unspeakable acts?
In the Witch House series I'm attempting to bring those stories to life once again as a collection my family can hold onto for future generations and for the interest of morbidly curious readers who crane to know what really happened in Salem, Mass in 1692.
