CJ Kim is a normal college student. He is doing what most college students do, figuring himself out, sometimes the hard way. He has some strange dreams now and then, but he just thinks they are just dreams. They’re certainly nothing to worry about when reality is pressing down so hard on him. Between the demands of school and family, he has enough on his mind.
He ends up with a huge crush on a senior that is on the baseball team. He doesn’t even like baseball, but he goes to games just to see him. Of course, he’ll never notice a gay and nerdy English major like CJ. Things are good, though. He even has a good relationship with his parents and his twin sisters.
He never expects his family’s past to come back to haunt him. It rears its head in the worst way possible and CJ finds himself the prisoner of a vengeful man. Thrust into something that goes beyond what can be considered normal, CJ finds out that there’s a fate out there trying to destroy him. He doesn’t know how, but he has to reach for a destiny that he can just barely see.

Beverly L. Anderson started writing at the age of eleven, and when they did it was obvious they weren't going to stick to the every day. Her first story, written in a series of spiral notebooks, was about a kidnapping. There's no surprise that these days, they favor the dark corners of the psyche over the happy and fluffy parts. Enamored with the mind, she studied extensively in the subjects of psychology and related fields.
Beverly's other hobbies include gaming of all types, transgender and autism advocacy, and writing fanfiction. Their interest in the BDSM community began as simple curiosity but has led her to the road to finding a place for herself there as a Domme. She herself has gone on the journey of self-discovery in the last few years, finally pinning down their identity after nearly thirty years of searching. Coming out as bigender, asexual, panromantic, and polyamorous was one of the hardest things they've ever done, but it gave them the confidence to become herself even more. An autistic person, and an eclectic pagan, Beverly finds themself at odds with a lot of what society calls "normal".
