Karlyle Tomms, an award-winning author who grew up in the rural Ozarks and began writing fiction later in life, has published his latest book “The Calling Dream”: a devastating portrait of a tortured soul desperately seeking redemption while pursuing his own moral destruction.

At the age of ten, in 1945, Ronald Dennison, the son of a backwoods Arkansas preacher, began having profound and religiously laden dreams about a strange redheaded woman. Throughout his life, she seduced him, called him to preach, to become a televangelist, while she berated him for his sins of lust. Yet she held a secret so dark that he dared never admit it, even to himself. The more famous and wealthier he became, the more he struggled with himself about his lust, his adultery, his fetish, and his shame until, one day, his life reached a breaking point, and his torment could no longer be contained.
Published by Page Publishing, Karlyle Tomms’s engrossing book is a compelling and provocative drama that lays bare the lasting tragedy of childhood trauma.
