I have nightmares. We all do. However, I tend to enjoy mine, mainly because they stay exactly where they are…in my dreams.
I remember one particular nightmare, where I was stuck in a hall and the walls started to crack and break, as if the hallway itself were opening its mouth to swallow me whole. I woke up with a start, and as I reached for the bottle of water I keep on my nightstand, I noticed a crack in the wall behind me.
And that’s all it really took to come up with Polly’s Haven. What if the nightmares found a way to the waking world? What if you couldn’t tell the difference anymore?
Polly’s Haven is based on a nightmare I had as well, and I feel damn good the story’s on paper and no longer in my head. Makes way for other nightmares to take center stage.
A woman tries to come to terms with repressed childhood memories while keeping the nightmare that has plagued her family for generations at bay.
