Even the grittiest blue collar city has a spark of magic under the surface; but in Baltimore, graffiti holds secret messages and artists are the spellcasters. Abandoned buildings hide ancient beings, and at the local club, you might find yourself rubbing shoulders with menacing and otherworldly creatures.
If you know how to look, of course.


Merrick Moore is just a regular guy with dreams of making it big with his garage band, but not much else – until he crashes a party thrown by reclusive eccentrics. He gets more than he bargained for: new powers, a girlfriend who can visit him in his dreams, and a seven year bond with the local Fae court.

When the mortal enemies of his new friends show up to his band’s first gig, Merrick finds himself trying to prevent the start of a war that will have consequences for everyone, Fae and human alike.

“This book is so engaging. It captured all of my attention and HELD IT. I felt like I was being trapped in a magic bottle, forced to read to the end by faerie magic. I couldn’t put the book down. I’m still convinced Christiane is a fae in disguise. I cannot recommend this book enough!”

-C.M. Wells

“The author has done a fantastic job, not only of painting a picture of the Baltimore just beyond the edges of our vision but of developing her characters and bringing them together to fight for a battle that may just mean the survival of Baltimore itself. […] Do yourself a favor and listen to the Spotify playlist the author has put together to accompany this novel. If you’re not already familiar with the music that forms the background of the story, you’ll definitely feel even closer to the story if you can hear the music.”

“I love fantasy literature, and In Sleep You Know
is a cool addition to the modern fantasy canon.
The overall feel of the world the author has built
reminds me in a good way of the Dresden Files series.”

– Michael I.
