After an ordinary evening studying for her final exams, Ariel wakes to a scream and discovers that demons have kidnapped her mother and dragged her into a hidden realm. Ariel mounts a rescue mission, but to defeat the demons, who feed on fear and seek the enslavement of the human race, she must learn a secret esoteric wisdom to awaken the dormant but potentially explosive power of her mind.
Walnut, a quirky old wise man, guides her through treacherous inner and outer landscapes, and Nick, the powerful Warrior who travels with them, proves a dangerous attraction. Can Ariel defeat the sadistic demon lord before he kills her and enslaves her mother?
The stakes are high, death a real possibility. Fail now, and she fails humanity.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
There’s a metaphysical basis to my writing. That’s a combination of philosophy (Buddhist in this case. It’s authentic too, based on extensive study) and the supernatural or non-corporeal aspects of human experience. The story is actually an analogy for what happens in our mind as we struggle to deal with negative emotions.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Don’t be in a hurry to publish and pay a professional to do a comprehensive edit that includes, structural editing, line editing, copy editing and a proof read, at least on your first book. You’ll learn a lot. Better still, select a service that uses two or three different editors. They shouldn’t cost more than one editor.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The scenes appeared in my mind as if I were watching a movie. They wouldn’t go away until I wrote them down, and I fell in love with the characters, especially Nick. I wanted to bring them to life for others to enjoy.
