The Golden Compass meets Narnia in this YA fantasy novel.
Bekk cannot seem to stay awake. As a sophomore in high school, it doesn’t bode well for his education, or the social services agent breathing down his older brother—and guardian’s—neck.
But Bekk can’t help it. He’s being plagued by dreams—dreams from his childhood, about a land called Iyah.
If he doesn’t snap out of it soon, he’ll be taken away from the only family he has left. But when the school psychologist insists it’s a childhood reaction to the trauma of his parent’s death, Bekk’s only recourse is to figure out the meaning of his dreams, before it’s too late.

Aside from her novels, Christa has also authored a graphic novel, HOLLOW, and 6-issue follow-up comic book series HOLLOW'S PRISM from Green-Eyed Unicorn Comics. (with illustrator Conrad Teves.)
Originally from Milwaukee, WI, Christa was exposed to many different things through her education, including an elementary Spanish immersion program, a vocal/opera program in high school, and her eventual B.S. in Biology. Her love of entomology and marine biology helped while writing her science fiction/ fantasy aliens/creatures.
As for why she writes, Christa had this to say: "I write because I have a story that needs to come out. I write because I can't NOT write. I write because I love creating something that pulls me out of my own world and lets me for a little while get lost inside someone or someplace else. And I write because I HAVE to know how the story ends."
