This historic Bible Belt homestead located in Hawthorne County, Alabama has a population of 45,000 and is nationally renowned for its fine whiskey. There is an old saying around Lazarus, once you enter the whiskey house, if you should ever come out, your life goes south. Lazarus, a lively city that was once a resting spot for the Buffalo Soldiers, has a lot of heritage, history, and religion. Maybe too much of each. The Hawthorne County Whiskey Stop, the city s most profitable tourist attraction, gets thousands of customers per year from in and out of town. But the Hawthorne County Whiskey House, its counterpart, is anything but good and sacred. Just ask the beloved Mayor of Lazarus, Samuel Justice, who has enough skeletons in the closet to fill the local cemetery. The level of treachery and mayhem spawned within the whiskey house is uncharted despite the fact that Reverend Jackson Jones, the pastor of the Central Baptist Church, owns it. Many believe that a lot of spirits are uneasy and that a curse lingers around Lazarus and Hawthorne County because of the crass circumstances that surround the whiskey house.  

Across the country, atrocities are committed daily, and sadly many go unreported. Victims are afraid to speak up and witnesses are hesitant to step in. People sound off on social media when incidents are portrayed as a national or international tragedy. However, it is easy to judge, rate, or provide commentary on an incident when there are no forces acting upon you. Sometimes fate tips the scale to the negative side and you are forced to choose between what is right and what you are afraid of losing. Poet/Author Marc Lacy takes a serious societal issue and cleverly implants it within a motley slate of characters, and laces it with a heavy backstory. Curse of the Whiskey House is the first book of an action packed trilogy called, The Whiskey House Trilogy.
