About Dream Share: Dream Share: When dreams come to life, the adventure begins!

Twelve-year old Sam and his older brother, Nathan, share an out-of-body experience that begins when Sam is drawn into his brother’s comatose state. The brothers enjoy visiting many mysterious realms beyond the physical, including those where whatever you imagine becomes real. But then each of the brothers is confronted with a monster, as their worst nightmares come to life. Only when Sam discovers how to use his mind to “see more deeply” do the boys understand that reality is what you perceive it to be, and that only by finding Truth can they find their way back home again.

In a back-of-the book section, Dream Share: The Story Behind the Story, readers find an author interview that discusses actual information about the book’s paranormal topics (What happens when a person is in a coma? What are “out-of-body” experiences and how do they occur? Do “alternate” realities really exist?) as well as their own Dream Journaling pages.
