BLACK ADAGIO is a thriller-diller that mixes horror and ballet. In other words, it’s like every ballet class I’ve ever taken! No, no, that’s not true! My protagonist, Melissa Solange, faces a danger much worse than a broken shank! I can’t believe what I did to that young girl, but that’s life in the world of horror. Always some demon in the shadows looking to steal your soul away.
The distillation of the story is as follows:
“Melissa Solange is presented the chance of a lifetime. Chosen as a member of a new dance company, she works tirelessly perfecting the one element of ballet she’s never mastered … the adagio. As she rehearses, a dark force watches. It has been resurrected by the surprise addition of a classic ballet to the repertoire. The sinister work is thought to be cursed, destroying anyone who attempts to dance it. When the production’s lead dancers begin to disappear, the old warning is taken more seriously. A death worshipping cult called The Innocents is blamed, but she is not so sure. They may be the scapegoat for an ultimate evil living in the woods of Holybrook. Desperate for an answer, she searches for what lurks in the shadows of the old trees before she becomes the next victim of the Danse Macabre.”
