If it were possible, I’d never sleep again.

Everyone was talking about my dreams—even though I hadn’t told a single soul about them. Wherever I went, strangers were discussing my nocturnal visions. I wanted to chalk all of this up to coincidence, but then, only minutes after a chance encounter with a young woman I didn’t know, after she told me in perfect detail of the dream I’d had the night before, she was killed. And I knew I’d have to figure out what was happening to me.

My only hope was a woman who had a knack for falling dead asleep. With help from Claire, a narcoleptic, I would have to take a sleep-journey into the past and future affecting everyone’s life, including my own.

Some things to know about me—my name is Kevin Macy and I’m a partner in an ad agency in Boston, Massachusetts. I’m divorced, I smoke, and I’m an accomplished alcoholic. Not that it has anything to do with my story, but it’s part of who I am. And in the course of reading about these supernatural and bizarre events, those things will factor in.

Another important note—and this you will have a hard time swallowing, I’m sure—while on this strange journey of discovery, I died. And I mean that in the realest of ways—dead as a door nail—bought the farm—kicked the bucket. You get the picture. Of course being dead didn’t “stick,” otherwise I wouldn’t be able to tell you my curious tale.

About the Author

Jennifer B. White swears like a road-house bouncer. She makes no apologies. She can peel wallpaper. She doesn’t have a Boston accent, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t wicked awesome. After all, she can drink any dude under the table. As long as it’s Chardonnay. She’s also a die-hard foodie.

Martha’s Vineyard holds a special place in her heart. It’s her personal Shangri-la. (Not Shambala, that’s a song by Three Dog Night.) From Chilmark and Menemsha to Oak Bluffs, Vineyard Haven and Edgartown, she’s adores the charm and natural beauty of the island, and has been going to the Vineyard since she was a teen.

The character of Kevin Macy came to her fully developed, and with loads of attitude. Naturally, she told him where to go. When he didn’t go there, she had to write him—and his story—onto paper. (That man is very persistent.)

Jennifer B. White is an author, screenwriter, and Hollywood tagline writer. She lives and writes in Boston, Massachusetts, when she’s not in Los Angeles, California working on movies. She holds a BA in communication and an M.Ed in psychology. She has three boys—all were born in late October, the youngest on Halloween.
