Ruby Dominguez, writer of the new screenplay THE PERUKE MAKER - The Salem Witch Hunt Curse invites you to a big debut Book/Screenplay Signing in Salem over the Halloween holiday. The author will be appearing at the Cinema Salem Cafe on October 30, 6:30pm-8:30pm.

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.

Dominguez, Ruby. "The Peruke Maker: The Salem Witch Hunt Curse". Outskirts Press, 2009.

"The Peruke Maker" is a screenplay inspired by true events. It deals with ancient and evil practices that go against the natural events of the world. Bridget Cane is beautiful with red hair and as she embarks on an emotional and spiritual journey in the 17th century, her story becomes bound with the story of another woman, Sarah who lives in the 21st century. It seems that the curse of Thomas Cane continues.

Sarah is a time traveler and she has visions of Bridget whose life is set during the time of the Salem witch trials. As the story continues we see that there is something that the two women share. To say anymore would ruin an exciting read but it is enough to say that the complexities of the past and the future come together against the backdrop of good and evil and we become witness to evil and sense the vulnerability of the human condition.

This is a screenplay that will keep you turning pages as fast as you can and the author has done a wonderful job in telling her story." - By Amos Lassen
