When Amelia Telford, a young and brilliant student, receives word that she’s been accepted into the college of her dreams, she thought her life might finally take a turn for the better after becoming estranged from her busy workaholic parents. But when she falls through a mysterious hole in her basement, she discovered that was far from the truth. Now immersed into an alternate reality filled with monsters and mythical creatures, all her book knowledge proves useless.
Connor, a handsome but bitter and reluctant demon, is wrangled into helping the human girl find her way home. With the assistance from an eccentric wizard, they must journey through the dangerous lands of Somniatis to Gastro Bay where an enchanted box is supposed to transport Amelia back to where everything makes sense. But, does she have much of a home to go back to?

The Story Behind the Story
It may seem cliche to say, but this story developed from a dream I had about a girl trapped in a world filled with monsters and struggling to get back to the real world. However, I do say in my defense that this doesn’t happen very often. Most of the time my dreams are so mangled that they don’t make sense. But the dream came at the perfect time while I was taking my creative writing class in high
school. The end of the year assignment required that we write a short story and turn it in for our final grade and this idea seemed perfect for the task. I built upon the idea and it became a little longer than just a short story, but not quite a novel length. It was the longest story out of all the others that were written in the class and I received a passing grade for the class. Part of the assignment, I also translated it into a screen play.
This song is absolutely perfect. It’s like Connor singing to Amelia.
