I’m over on Jessica Jefferson’s blog today sharing a personal story.
Jessica asked me to share a personal story with you guys today, so I’ve decided to give you insight into the genesis of my novel, Protect Her. It’s a strange story, but when I was 18, I had an episode of sleep paralysis.
What happens during sleep paralysis is you wake while still being in REM sleep (the cycle of sleep when we dream). It’s thought that while in this part of sleep, our body is in a state of partial paralysis. Our bodies way of keeping us from acting out our dreams.

Well, when this happened to me, I saw a demon hovering over me.
