In The Glass Books of The Dream Eaters three most unlikely but nevertheless extraordinary heroes become inadvertently involved in the diabolical machinations of a cabal bent upon enslaving thousands through a devilish 'process':

Miss Temple is a feisty young woman with corkscrew curls who wishes to learn why her fianc Roger broke off their engagement...

Cardinal Chang was asked to kill a man, but finding his quarry already dead he is determined to learn who beat him to it and why...

And Dr Svenson is chaperone to a dissolute Prince who has become involved with some most unsavoury individuals...

An adventure like no other, in a mysterious city few have travelled to, featuring a heroine and two heroes you will never forget.

"In the winter of 2004 I was selected for jury duty (at the very same time Martha Stewart went to trial in the next building over we all had to walk past the fifteen media vans to get to our courthouse). Since the courts in Manhattan are near Chinatown, I like jury duty, as it means a few days of excellent lunches. Instead, New York was hit with a ferocious, sub-zero ice storm that went on for days, where it was impossible to wander in the way I had hoped, and so, with the grind of the trial itself, we jurors were marooned for close to 4 hours each day in the jury room. The second night of the trial, however, I had a strange dream where a friend of mine appeared in the exact garb of one of The Glass Books' three main characters, Doctor Svenson, and together we faced a mystery in a strange, dark, Victorian building involving prisoners in a creepy upstairs room without a door. While I very rarely remember my dreams, the next morning I found this one percolating in my head quite vividly. But then, for no reason I can recall, I took out a notebook, and began instead of the Doctor, who I would get to almost off-handedly in another 100 pages or so writing about a willful young woman from the West Indies whose fiance has abandoned her without explanation, making it up as I went along. By the end of the trial I had the first chapter. I am by trade a playwright, and had not written prose fiction of any kind for nearly 20 years, but I found myself hooked on the story and the characters perhaps out of my own desire to know what happened next and so persisted, putting aside most everything else, writing for the most part in coffee shops and on the subway, until I finished the book almost exactly one year later."
