Sleep then My Princess, a chilling fast-paced thriller, set in Arizona, where the desert becomes a place of fear.
Losing her husband in a tragic accident seems to be the least of Stephani Robbins problems when she finds herself trapped in a series of unexpected events. A secret ‘admirer’ overwhelms her with creepy presents, recurrent visions of a child she can’t recognize, and her struggle to save the life of a loved one.
Targeted Age Group: 18+
The seed for my thriller Sleep then My Princess was planted many years ago when I was nine-years-old. Our family went to visit friends. My parents were sitting at their friends’ dining table after they had enjoyed a home cooked lunch and the discussion was about a woman who lived across the road from these friends. This woman was minding a pre-school age child from Monday to Friday. This child slept in the chicken shed at night summer and winter and was only cleaned up before her mother came to pick her up on Friday evening. I was shocked as were my parents.
Many years later, I saw a news report while holidaying in Scottsdale, Arizona about a woman who was babysitting children in a similar situation. This gave me the impetus to write that story.
