Dreams For a Life

Michael TT Williams
Michael TT Williams Author Interview

Dark Forces follows a genius polymath who created a way for people to control their dreams, but now there is something sinister attacking the dreamers. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

The inspiration for the story was as follows. I fell into a coma in Asia 2010-2019. For eight and a half years I only had dreams for a life. I dreamt about Tarot and the other main characters in the book. The major plot line stemmed from my dreams although I expanded on it as I wrote it.

Tarot is an intriguing and well developed character. What were some driving ideals behind your character’s development?

Tarot is a reflection of my deepest feelings about our world. He is upset by all the needless hurt in it, and the extent to which we harm each other. If I were God I would change it. Tarot can and does. But he finds that evil has a purpose in the balance of life and creating paradise is a actually not feasible. The compromise is something closer.

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

The main themes were: Human nature; why are we as we are? How do we really know what reality is? Consciousness is outside of the law of physics that governs matter and energy. What happens in our deepest dreams? Where does goodness come from? How can AI, i.d.c, consider us anything but redundant?

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

The next book “Reality Rebooted” is the third part of “The Dream Corporation Trilogy”.

This is a Second Edition of “Dark Forces” which reflects the helpful feedback from the Amazon customer reviews.

The text of the book has been carefully edited to remove initial typographical errors.

The book covers have been re-designed.

The story itself, and the manner in which it is told, which has received universally high praise, is unchanged.

Tarot, the polymath genius, created the Dream Corporation so that people could control their own dreams and enjoy them in a safe environment. Early user feedback was excellent, but then things started to go wrong. Some dreamers were locked into their dreams, others began to go into comas and suffer brain damage. Apparently, safety protocols had been breached. Was the AI-driven dream-ware infected with a virus? Had Tarot inadvertently tapped into the unknown layer beneath the unconscious mind, or was there any truth in the premise that ancient beings from a “dark” universe were penetrating the dream-ware firewalls and attacking the dreamers? Travel with Tarot and his friends including, Millie and Donna on their perilous journey through the dream-worlds to discover the truth and save the dreamers from the darkness. And can Tarot reach the twins, Rio and Vanessa, and combine their minds with psychic thermonuclear effect to counter the Omega? When the line between reality and dreams is removed, how can anyone know what is real?
