Does Evil Have a Color?


Connie (Corcoran) Wilson writes about what we are terrified to talk about—the truth.

Wilson’s main character,  Tad McGreevy, has a power that many would consider a curse. He can see colors, auras, around everyone he meets. Every aura tells Tad whether the individual is good or evil. Wilson takes us through the story rooting for Tad, who has one goal: to protect those he loves from the evil that lurks among us.

Pogo is the hired clown at Tad’s 8th birthday party. After meeting Pogo (aka Michael Clay), Tad relives every terrifying detail of the Killer Clown’s actions,  fearfully relating the horrifying details to his disbelieving family in the middle of the night. They insist Tad is simply having bad dreams and must not tell anyone of his unique power.

The catch? Tad doesn’t know if the crimes he is witnessing occurred in the past, the present or the future.

With each line, Wilson holds our interest, keeping us glued to the story, connecting with us via Tad’s vulnerability.  The message: dark people and places can live quietly, right next door to you.  The Color of Evil is a frightening and intense story of the darkness that lurks in seemingly typical small town America.

Wilson displays her true colors as a formidable writer in creating this graphic page-turner of a tale.
