The Fortune Tree

Jane Baker lives in terror. Her fear is not only the result of her abusive husband or her demanding mother-in-law, but also her dreams.

When Blacktree begins murdering in Jane’s dreams, she knows she has to take action. But these strange events become an ultimate curse when she has a dream of Blacktree murdering her.

Murder Masterpiece

Upon returning to work from a sabbatical following a tragedy, students begin getting murdered.

Aside from the slasher angle, Murder Masterpiece is the story of a woman forced to come to terms with a violence that she has kept at an intellectual distance through writing a book—touching on the distance and disconnection that so often exists between the real world and the world of academia.
