DREAM WATERS
Book One of The Dream Waters Series


All his life, Charlie Oliver has watched the people around him morph into creatures that no one else sees. Unlike the rest of the world, Charlie remembers the Waters that transport him to the Dream World each night. And he sees glimpses of people’s Dream forms in the waking world. Condemned to spend his waking hours in a psychiatric facility because of his Dream Sight, Charlie doesn’t expect anything to change. But everything starts changing the day Emma Talbot walks through the door in the middle of a group therapy session.


Haunted by memories of the events that led to her admission, Emma plans to end her life the first chance she gets.  But something about Charlie stops her. From the moment they shake hands, his friendship feels safe and familiar. As Emma begins to let down her guard, Charlie catches a glimpse of the fiery-eyed dragon that lurks behind her Dream form.  Each night, as Emma dreams of the man who’s been banned from visiting, Charlie searches the Dream World for the monster that shadows her. But when Emma’s suppressed memories begin to surface, Charlie finds more monsters than he bargained for.


DREAM WORLD
Book Two of The Dream Waters Series
   

Recently released from a psychiatric facility after discovering that he is a dragon and his Dream Sight is not a delusion but a gift, Charlie Oliver sets off to accept the invitation extended by a powerful dragon and potential mentor to join his ‘family’ of Sighted individuals.  As his demon guides begin to instruct him, Charlie quickly discovers just how little he actually knows about the Dream World and the creatures who inhabit it.

While Charlie stumbles through his lessons and struggles to bring out his inner dragon, Emma Talbot has her own struggles to deal with now that she’s been taken from the facility and placed under house arrest.  Imprisoned within the same walls as the husband she suspects of being an adulterer and a murderer, Emma grows weaker while her world continues to crumble around her.

As Charlie begins to tap into his dragon instincts, he learns more about Emma’s past and becomes increasingly convinced that he needs to save her.  But what if the very prison that binds her is the only thing protecting her from what lurks beyond?

DREAM SIGHT
Book Three of The Dream Waters Series
(To be released late Fall 2017)


The clock is ticking for Emma Talbot—if her dormant memories don’t resurface soon, her past will be forever lost to her—but that’s the least of her worries.  Abducted from her home by her husband’s worst enemy, Emma is running out of time in more ways than one.

No longer bound by any limits—moral or physical—the Dragon King sets off on a rampage to discover the whereabouts of his missing wife and retrieve her from the monster who took her.  And any creature who is fool enough to stand in his way may well condemn himself to a fate worse than death.

As the royal family’s crisis escalates, Charlie has his own struggles to deal with.  The weight of the world now rests on his shoulders and although he is physically capable of shouldering the burden in his emergent form, his ability to control the bestial urges that accompany his newfound power might be another story.

EXCERPT:

Dream World (Book 2)

It was exactly the sort of evening that I relished slipping into. No moon, no stars, just the pitch black of the eternal night sky and the air that sweltered thick and hot enough to rob the breath from your lungs. I sat down on a boulder beside the seemingly bottomless pool of Water and watched the Water cascade into it from the rock high above. Dark and powerful, the Water fell without a sound. In fact, not a single sound emanated from the forest. Nothing dared make a sound in my presence. I sank into the darkness, merged with it, became it. Then I looked to the top of the canyon a short distance from the Waterfall and knowing black eyes blinked in the darkness, vowing to take my place as soon as I stepped away.

I turned as a creature noiselessly emerged from the forest. Dressed in a heavy black cloak, beads and potion flasks and the teeth of various beasts strung around his neck and waist, he walked upright like a man. But beneath his cloak, the creature sauntered toward me with the bestial grace of a predator. His skull and facial bones were the bones of a man, but no flesh covered them, just pure white bone gleaming in the darkness. A wiry tuft of black hair grew from the top of his skull and eyes darker than the starless sky searched for me through fleshless sockets.

Though he couldn’t see me, he stopped just inches from my feet. “How are you, my old friend?”

I stood and let the darkness slip away from me. “That depends on whether you can help us.”

The corners of his mouth lifted into a disconcerting smile. “Still the same ray of sunshine, I see. I’m well, too. And my journey was uneventful. Thank you for asking.”

I took a step toward him, and he instinctively took two steps back. “I’d lose that smile if I were you. And save the cleverness for your potions. No one here is in the mood for jokes.”

He shook his bony head. “I’ve missed you too, Darkness. You always were the life of the party.”

AUTHOR INTERVIEW:

If you could have one paranormal ability, what would it be?  
I think I’d have to choose telekinetic flight.  I can’t think of anything cooler than being able to fly.  

What is one thing your readers would be most surprised to learn about you?
I’ve got some weird texture issues when it comes to foods.  When I was pregnant, I couldn’t stand the feeling of chewing chicken.  I’d have to spit it out unless it was cut into super tiny pieces. Squished white bread has always disgusted me to no end.  My younger sisters used to squish pieces of Wonder bread into little balls and eat them just to gross me out. Also, it bothers me when people package squishy leftovers in plastic bags.  Pasta dishes, mashed potatoes, that sort of thing just doesn’t belong in a plastic bag. Yes, it’s weird. But you asked for something surprising and that’s what came to mind.

When writing descriptions of characters, what feature do you start with?
That is an interesting question.  I actually had to go back and skim through my first two books because I really wasn’t sure what feature I usually describe first.  Turns out, it’s the character’s hair—even if the character happens to be bald, I’ll start by describing his lack of hair. I guess I start from the top and move my way down.  Who knew? The one exception to this was my description of Tristan when I first introduced him in Book Two. I started with his strikingly beautiful face, which fits if you know the character.

Are you a plotter or a pantser?
I’m actually a hybrid of the two.  I start by plotting out the major chapters and ideas on index cards.  Then I rearrange the cards and add or subtract scenes as I go along. But there are plenty of instances where I sit down to write and my characters go off in a completely different direction than I’d planned.  I swear they have minds of their own.

Did you learn anything from writing Dream Waters?
Absolutely.  Dream Waters was my debut novel, and it took me approximately three years to write.  A lot of that time was spent re-writing because the process was new to me. I learned that writing a book involves more editing and re-writing than actual writing.  The words don’t just flow perfectly when you first capture the story on paper. You have to go over and over them until the finished product finally emerges. I also learned to give my characters some room to breathe.  Sometimes, they’ll surprise me and do things I really hadn’t planned but often those things are better than what I had in mind. I know that sounds crazy, but it’s true. Once you develop them enough, characters take on a life of their own.  I also discovered that writing is my passion. I feel like writing books is what I was meant to do. The feeling of elation I get when I finish a chapter or wrap up a novel is like nothing I’ve ever experienced before.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Erin Jensen is a part-time pharmacist and a full-time creator of imaginary worlds.  She lives in upstate NY with her incredibly supportive husband, two sons (who are both taller than her) and a Yorkshire terrier who thinks he’s the family bodyguard.  In the early days of her writing career, Erin vowed to get a dragon tattoo—once her books received a milestone number of reviews—but she won’t disclose that number any longer, for fear of actually reaching her goal and having to go through with it.
