After ten Waking-years of sojourning to the Land of the Dreams of Men every night -- the equivalent of over 600 Dream-years -- Sir Differel Van Helsing has become a veteran Dreamer and a formidable force. Though she frequently adventures solo, between Team Girl, her Dream-husband Victor, and their mutual friends she has no dearth of traveling companions in case she wants one. However, she regrets that her frenemy, Lady Margaret Rose Chesham, never learned to Dream.
So when an opportunity arises for her to introduce "Maggot" to the Dreamlands, "Dribble" jumps at it, and while Margaret is reluctant, she is sufficiently intrigued to give it a try. Differel hopes that Margaret will learn to love the Dreamworld as much as she does, and thereby give her another adventuring companion, but she just wants to relax.
Too bad she won't get her wish.
In the Bonus Story, two saurian scientists examine two hominids, a man and a woman, and begin to question the nature of what it means to be "human".
About the Author
Kevin L. O'Brien was born with a pen in his hand.
Well, not quite, but he has been writing for as long as he can remember, at least since First Grade. Writing has always been his first, true love, but it hasn't always been his career. He worked for 15 years as a biomedical researcher, then for 3 years as a web designer. However, after 30 years of trying to be published in print with little success, he has decided to try his hand at self-publishing. Most of his works will be sold as ebooks through Smashwords, Kindle, and Kobe, but he also plans to make some available for free on Wattpad.
He writes primarily speculative fiction -- fantasy, science fiction, horror, and their sub-genres -- but he also likes to try his hand at thrillers, suspense, mystery, and even westerns. However, his stories tend to have a fantasy element, no matter how subtle.
Most of his stories involve the following three main characters:
Medb hErenn (http://www.medbherenn.com/) -- One-time queen of Ireland, she is over 3500 years old. A warrior and a sorceress, she cannot be harmed by any weapon made by the hand of man.
Eile and Sunny, Team Girl (http://www.teamgirlforever.com/) -- They are two adorable, vivacious, fun-loving young women whose motto is ONWARD TO ADVENTURE!!! Yet trouble follows them like a love-sick puppy wherever they go.
Sir Differel Van Helsing (http://www.sir-differel.com/) -- The descendent of Abraham Van Helsing and King Arthur, she heads the Caerleon Order, the premier monster-hunting organization of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. She commands Dracula, the most powerful vampire extant, and the greatsword Caliburn, better known as Excalibur.
He also writes a series of sword & sorcery stories set in an alternative universe known as the Lands of the Dreams of Men.
Kevin lives in Denver with his family and 4 cats.
