There’s no such thing as Voodoo.
At least, that’s what most of the Baptists in Bellin tell themselves. But Seven LaVey knows better.
In a small rural town just outside of Nashville, Voodoo conjures and curses simmer and seethe under the noses of the many who will never know. Seventeen-year-old Seven romanticizes about the meaning of life while held captive as a zombie under the shell of a kiddie pool. He's counting on the strength - and maybe even love - of a certain redheaded clarinet player to save him. But will she?
Filled with betrayal and revenge, two families struggle with a curse that stretches back to Queen of the Voodoos Marie Laveau in this contemporary Southern Gothic adventure. Prepare for a wildly original twist on the paranormal.

"Intriguing and provocative, Blue Bottle Tree is a macabre story that explores a different twist on the modern Gothic adventure."

"This is popular fiction with a brain. As an old literature snob with an advanced degree, I was somewhat skeptical that this novel would satisfy. I can truthfully say it does! The plotting and characterization grips you and keeps you reading..."
