The party bosses thought they got their way. If they only knew.
1944. President Roosevelt is ailing, and whomever is selected as VP will end up leading the country. At stake is more than a candidate, more than a political office, but an entire timeline.
Waking in a dream Nadia finds herself in a classroom with two other students. The woman posing as their teacher (if indeed she is a woman), convinces them that they have no real choice but to assist with her plan. Miss Biel breaks each of them with terrifying nightmares, and ‘tasks’ to complete while awake, that destroys any hope of escape.
But Nadia begins to realize she isn’t quite alone, not exactly powerless, and that there are those besides Miss Biel who want a certain outcome. There comes a time when she has to decide who to trust.
American Dreamer weaves present and past in a narrative that
transports the reader to an earlier age, and slowly wakes them to an
alternative reality, not too distant than our own present.
“A great story, imaginative and absorbing. I read the whole book over a weekend, couldn’t put it down. The crossing between alternate universes and parallel lives was like American Gods written by Neil Gaiman. It was a reminder that even in these troubled times, things could be worse!”
LUCID BOOK 2: TOMORROW’S HISTORY
The gods don’t stand idle, content with watching the human drama unfold. Just as the sagas and the ancient stories tell, they like to interfere.
London. Present day. The sun glints off solar panels, harvesting the energy that keeps the city moving. Roof gardens add a hint of green to the skyline. Airships pass overhead on their way north to the capital, Jorvik. Ships of the Great Fleet load at the busy docks, preparing for the voyage across the Western Ocean to the Far Settlements, holding the Norse world together.
Were it not for his disturbing dreams, Jakob would think his world is safe. But it isn’t. Something needs finishing for his present to come to pass, and for some unknown reason he has been chosen to do it.
Jakob finds himself in dreams from which there is no escape, where he must survive among ancestors less refined and genteel than his current countrymen. Thrust into an age of Vikings who are much more familiar with the sword and the axe, he lacks the one skill that is essential to survival. While the gods manipulate fate, he uses the only thing he has—his wits.
Tasked with leading a party of Danes in pursuit of royal game he is swept into an adventure that can only have one outcome if Britain is to survive. King Alfred “the Great” must not get away.
Tomorrow’s History has it all: gods and goddesses, Vikings, time travel, alternate realities, lucid dreams … and key moments in history, where the very future hinges on the outcome.
LUCID BOOK 3: GODS AND DREAMERS
“Time kills all things. Even the gods. That’s why they interfere so much. They just want to live longer. It’s pathetic, really,” Petrit said.
We all dream. Only most of don’t remember. How can we even know what we do in our dreams if the memory fades like mist when we wake up? Teeny, Robbie, and Thieu start to recall their dreams and the disturbing acts of violence and servitude that they are coerced into committing in timelines other than theirs.
Awareness breeds rebellion. Led by Petrit and Nadia, who enlist the new rebels into their secret campaign against the manipulative gods, the dreamers learn how to use their lucidity to resist the oppressive forces that control their dreams and realities alike. Together, the dreamers struggle to protect their timelines and push back against the gods that exploit mortals for entertainment and rewrite history for sustained nourishment.
But first they have to survive. There are others who think them heretics and will try to stop them at all costs.
