Lucy and Samantha are a two-person team of paranormal investigators, dedicated to discovering the secrets of their home in Island River. Cynical by nature, and after the collapse of her marriage, Lucy doesn’t believe in the stories of ghosts and spirits – despite Samantha’s superstitions.

But when a recurring dream appears in her sleep night after night, Lucy soon finds herself questioning her convictions. As she falls deeper into her dreams, the strange world beyond begins to reveal itself. She uncovers a darkness which is only known by those that have passed on long ago, and the mysterious house at the heart of it all.

With old demons resurfacing to haunt her, Lucy must discover the truth about the world in her dreams – and in the process face the dark entity who is determined to keep it hidden no matter the cost…

I needed a place for Lucy and Sam to call home, as well as a way in which I could write the series.

The locals named the town back in the 1800s. The town's name came about because they lived on an island and there was a river that ran through it.

The name seems simple. But, there is historical evidence to show how people named their towns in the United States, back then.

There aren't too many specific details about the island. While I have some landmarks that are necessary, it also allows me to create the series. I, thus, can show more of the island as the stories unfold.
