Every character appearing in this book was in dreams Dee Dee had. They are all based on horrific dreams, mostly bloodthirsty and she placed her cast in real places and they follow actual history events. These characters are dear to her as they shared her nightly visions, names personalized faceless beings, tying threads and the unexplained, turning them into a positive.
From the Inside Flap
Dedication This dedication is to fellow sufferers of harrowing dreams, the best way to deal with them, is to confront them head on, turning them into a positive experience. Acknowledgements I would like to send my special thanks to Christine Kannard for all her positive feedback and help so freely given, and nagging me for the next instalment. Also, thanks to my Dutch friends the Bonnemas for all their help and support; my stepmom, Nadine who always believed in me, and to my best friend Lyn for all the encouragement. To all the people at Zeus Publishing, for the expert advice, from Bruce, Marilyn, Leanne and the Art Department; without your help I could never have gotten this far! Lastly, the readers; hope you enjoy this flight of fancy and cast of characters, as much as I enjoyed creating them.
Dee's life has been shaped by a curious childhood, teens in which she was a chronic sleepwalker and an adult life which has been dominated by relentless dreams, both exquisite and traumatising in turn. Their power consumed her so that she both relished and reviled these uninvited experiences, yet they became the backdrop for many of the chapters. Unwittingly, a positive aspect emerged as she began disseminating these obscure colourful characters and random events that culminated in the writing of these stories. Applying a lifelong interest in history added another dimension to her writing, and inexplicably helped re-evaluate much of her latter life, that of peaceful middle age. Published earlier this year New Soil a work of supernatural/ paranormal/ horror that makes for a thrilling and exciting vampire story.
