Jericho Pickering never had it easy. Not the day he was born (he was breached and had to be delivered by Cesarian). Not his childhood (his mother was a meth head and his father an abusive drunk). And certainly not his life as a young adult (living life on the streets of Boulder, homeless and penniless, is a desperate recipe for misery).
Born into the incestuous and violently religious Pickering family, an immensely huge clan that controls much of the Tennessee town of Cottage Grove, Jericho knew early on what he was supposed to do. Grow up, get married and help the family in the ministry. Obediah Pickering, a towering monster of a man and the town preacher and mayor, controlled his children and grandchildren with an iron grip. He made sure that every one of them adhered to his strict edicts and that not a one ever ventured outside of the Pickering estate, save for the most trusted. Jericho was terrified of the man’s savagery and cruelty and did his best to stay off of Obediah’s radar.
Insulated and restless, Jericho soon discovered at an early age that he could see… things… no one else could see. Hearing stories of other people in his family who had experienced the same and who had mysteriously disappeared (i.e. ‘killed’ as far as Jericho was concerned), Jericho did his best to keep his visions and visitations by strange presences a secret. But as he grew into adolescence, this became more and more difficult to control. He was mocked by his siblings and cousins as ‘the spaz’ or the ‘jumping frog’ and the relentless shame of his environment and his family took their continual toll on him.
