The Sleeping Man -- guest post by Stephen Carigan, an Inkshares hopeful whose world enchants, enlivens, and dares us to dream.
Compelling from the first paragraph. In its first few pages, it creates the bones of a mythology that is both frightening and intriguing. Diving into the meat of the world is almost certain to be a rewarding treat.
I was raised in Chattanooga, TN and later went on to study theatre at University of Memphis, Accademia dell'arte, and later National University for a MFA in Creative Writing. Now, I'm serving as an IT Technician for the United States Navy.
Through the 2nd grade I was unable to read, and it was my mother who sat and read with me to overcome severe dyslexia and ADHD. Having written all my life, I'm excited to have my work out there for people to read and enjoy.
