If you’d like to know anything about the stories that I’m working on that won’t spoil the story, feel free to send me a message and I’ll include it in one of my newsletters!

I’d also like to mention that these synopsis are extremely provisional and will probably change as the drafting process goes along. They’re just what I can say for now!

Series: This is the first book in a series.
Current Stage: Currently Writing
Thematic Statement: Rise from the shadows and show we matter.”

This story is a gay Sleeping Beauty inspired story. Part of it comes out of my love of the stars and prophecies! I also wanted to write a story inspired by one of my favourite stories growing up while portraying Maleficent in a nicer light than the original tale did. Maleficent isn’t the villain in this story, they do play a vital role, however.

The Dream Prince is also a story of youth empowerment and how youths can rise up and cause change in the worlds they live in. Teens saving the world is completely realistic, don’t tell me otherwise.

  • Prince Khenan once believed the stars foretold him from birth as the promised Sun Prince. Years later, he brands himself a traitor as he possesses a forbidden art in the Kingdom of Quiema, Magic. His doubts soon aid him in learning that the prophecy was forged. The true meaning jolts Khenan into escaping the palace and accidentally starting a sorcerer rebellion. Khenan’s main goal is to journey to Teijo so he can awaken the Prince. The same Prince who was placed under a sleeping curse — a consequence of the prophecy.

    Prince Naito will soon be dead. However, through dream-walking, he has experienced life through others. After learning that his soul might hold the key to breaking the curse, he breaches his sole tenet and leaves his dreamscape to enter the Spirit Lands, the home of spirits both good and bad. Naito must be resourceful, as he’ll have to forge alliances with spirits that could betray him at any moment.

    The clock is ticking closer to the curse’s completion. Only together, do Princes Khenan and Naito stand a chance of defeating their evils, before they encompass and kill them both.

    THE DREAM PRINCE is an #ownvoices story inspired by Sleeping Beauty with gay, bi & ace characters and Afro-Caribbean and East-Asian inspired kingdoms.
