Blurb: All his life, Charlie Oliver has watched the people around him morph into creatures that no one else sees. Unlike the rest of the world, Charlie remembers the Waters that transport him to the Dream World each night and he sees glimpses of people’s Dream forms in the waking world. Condemned to spend his waking hours in a psychiatric facility because of his Dream Sight, Charlie doesn’t expect anything to change. But everything starts changing the day Emma Talbot walks through the door in the middle of a group therapy session.
Haunted by memories of the events that led to her admission, Emma plans to end her life the first chance she gets. But something about Charlie stops her. From the moment they shake hands, his friendship feels safe and familiar. As Emma begins to let down her guard, Charlie catches a glimpse of the fiery-eyed dragon that lurks behind her Dream form. Each night, as Emma dreams of the man who’s been banned from visiting, Charlie searches the Dream World for the monster that shadows her. But when Emma’s suppressed memories begin to surface, Charlie finds more monsters than he bargained for.
Behind the Scenes: My career as a pharmacist has afforded me the opportunity to interact with mentally ill individuals at various points along the spectrum of sanity and in every conversation, no matter how coherent, I’ve looked into their eyes and seen a soul struggling to connect. It was out of respect for that struggle and my own curious need to understand why some souls have been burdened with such tortured disconnected lives that I dreamt up a world to make sense of it all.
Author Bio: Erin Jensen is a part-time pharmacist and a full-time creator of imaginary worlds. She lives in upstate New York with her ridiculously supportive husband, two wonderful sons and a Yorkshire terrier who thinks he’s the family bodyguard.
