In Love With Cancer

In this sometimes bizarre, often uproariously funny and heart-wrenching story, a woman’s worst fear becomes reality. While recovering from her surgery, she stumbles into a rabbit hole of revelations and memories leading all the way back to the Garden of Eden and the realization that “shame is the real cancer that needs to be lopped off and thrown in the trash.”

Black Butterflies

The safe and idyllic world Rose created for Tom (Tennessee), her shy and sickly younger brother, suddenly falls apart when their father, a hard-drinking, womanizing, traveling salesman, moves the family from the peaceful home of their maternal grandparents, to the “dreadful” city of St. Louis. As Rose and Tom struggle to cope with their puritanical mother and tyrannical father, and their own emerging sexual identities, the very underpinnings of their symbiotic relationship begin to crumble. Tom eventually escapes the oppressive household through his writing, while Rose remains imprisoned behind a terminal wall of silence.
