Charlie Patterson is an exceptionally bright, twelve-year-old boy, with no close friends. He spends most weekends in the company of his great-grandfather, G'pa Joe, and most weekdays trying his best to be invisible. This year, however, promises to be different. This year, all of Charlie's dreams will begin to come true - in more ways than he had hoped.

Charlie's entire summer has been filled with increasingly disturbing dreams. Most feature a strange, dark-haired girl, who watches, but does not speak. Her name is Robin LeBeaux, a lovely seventh grader from New Mexico with a tragic past, and she is quite real. Despite Charlie's insistent logic, and Robin's enthusiastic illogic, they become fast friends. Together, guided by Robin's deceased sister, they discover a singular talent - the ability to walk into and influence others' dreams.

Lurking amidst fanciful images of fur-covered dragons, deserts of colored glass, distorted history, and strange beings, there is a growing darkness in the dream world, the Stream. Within that darkness, G'pa Joe has become the Stream's latest victim, lost in a confusing world of nightmares masquerading as memories. Charlie and Robin are determined to find G'pa Joe and bring him back, no matter the cost. There is but one small problem: the dark Lord Siri, ruler of the Stream, has other plans for the dream world … and Charlie.

About the Author

Bill Jones, Jr. assumed from an early age that he would be a photographer when he grew up. From age 12, Bill could be found bicycling around the streets of downtown Hampton, Virginia, camera in hand. Already an avid Science Fiction and Fantasy buff, at age ten, he was exposed to the poetry of Nikki Giovanni and the fiction of Jack London and Madeleine L’Engle. The writing bug was born.

In 2007, Bill wrote a short story, which would later become the first two chapters of The Stream. In 2009, he began work on the book in earnest, completing his first novel, The Stream: Discovery, and its sequel, The Stream: Awakening, writing the books back-to-back in four months. A perfectionist to his core, Bill decided to finish the 3-book series before attempting to publish the first novel.

Now, with the completion of the series, Bill is excited about the publication of his debut novel, The Stream: Discovery, a coming-of-age Fantasy Fiction book for all age groups. When not at his day job, Bill can be found writing, at the gym, or wandering the streets of the Nation's capitol, still with cameras in tow.
