ABOUT Gladys Quintal

Gladys Quintal
A survivor of sexual abuse, I have recently written the true account of my childhood, titled: Life After Hell: Surviving Sexual Abuse. I have tried to convey what happened to me as well as my journey to finally getting justice. A lot of my own experiences have gone into my fictional works More...


Ever since the death of her parents at the age of 17, Cassie has been dreaming about a dark haired man. He always comes to her in times of trouble to comfort her and help her through the toughest of days. But now after the devastating break up with her boyfriend, Cassie struggles with separating reality from her dreams.

During a trip to her family beach house, her dream man becomes her lover and Cassie finds herself longing for this man to be in her life. But trying to find out the truth about him leaves her questioning her very existence and sanity.

She is convinced her dream man is real and connected to a string of macabre murders over the last 20 years. Fearing for her life, Cassie prays she is right about him and that he can save her before it is too late.

Note from author: WARNING : This book mentions an episode of sexual abuse, there are violent  and unsettling themes. Although the majority of this story is fictional, it is in part based on real life events and people.

I had a very traumatic childhood and invented the vigilante vampire as a hero to save me. I also love the TV shows Moonlight and Dexter and they also helped to inspire me to write this novel. For years I dreamt of a dark haired man and 12 years ago I found him - so this story is very close to my heart.
