D.C. Canipe, an Atlanta, Georgia based writer, has completed his new book “Dream: A Surreal and Psychedelic Gay Romance”: a combination coming-of-age fantasy story with real world roots as his protagonist, Dante Jackson, faces a series of challenges that arise around his eighteenth birthday. After years of suppressing painful memories, Dante realizes that his abusive step-mother is actually an evil witch in disguise and Dante is thrusted into an expedition of self-discovery as he must relive forgotten moments of his life.

“As a kid, I was inspired by fantasy, diving into my imagination, drawing mermaids, faeries, and dragons,” D.C. Canipe said of his journey to becoming a writer. “From these simple doodles formed a creative spark that soon turned into a glowing flame. After years of drawing, I began writing stories about these magical characters between classes in high school.”

Published by Page Publishing, D.C. Canipe’s vivid tale captures the magic of his fantastical background, as Dante Jackson finds his childhood stuffed animals, Mizu the mermaid and Theodore the teddy bear, are enchanted and come to life to aid him on his quest to defeating the darkness of his past, and try to bring him out to the light of a brighter future.
