About the Book
The people enjoy a virtual utopia every night by using interactive dream technology, but their computer-generated dreams are the only source of entertainment available. The AI determined that the root cause of all harmful human behaviours was uncontrolled emotions, but balanced, harmonious emotions are an integral aspect of wellness. It concluded that the only way to reliably achieve that was to eliminate emotion while a person was awake, then provide a safe way to experience the complete range of human emotions while engaged in dreaming.
The story follows a man who struggles to hide the fact that he can still feel a low level of emotions during the day. He must keep his secret emotions and his mind strictly controlled—through the use of meditation—but he continues to make that harder and harder to accomplish when his life is on the line.

Originally from Canada, I relocated to Finland in 2008, for marriage. I’ve been using the pen name Starwing for more than ten years now. Writing has been a lifelong passion of mine—ever since I learned how to write in my first year of school. I enjoy writing everything from ad copy and press releases, to music reviews and non-fiction, but I especially love writing fiction! My first novel, “Dreaming Your Dream” is best described as a dystopian science-fiction psychological drama, with a touch of fantasy (in the form of dreams) and a bit of romance for good measure. It includes 50 beautiful illustrations by the very talented artist, Melinda Maria Lack. “Looking at the path toward utopia, you will inevitably see a time that appears more like a dystopia.” ~ Starwing
