Writing One Page at a Time
Stephen Helmes was born in the same city in which he lives today, Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia. Stephen started writing in 2001, but there was no plan to go professional. It started with a nightmare. He woke in a cold sweat and knew that if he went back to sleep the dream would be forgotten. So he got up and started writing it down while the images were still vivid in his mind. It didn’t take long to realize that he enjoyed this style of writing, and things grew from there. Stephen isn’t only an author, but a musician as well. He is one of the founding members of the Rock band, House of Flies. They are known for playing venues from Atlanta, GA areas up to Chattanooga, TN areas.
“Everyone has a phobia. Some are afraid of heights while others are afraid of the dark. Many are afraid of snakes and spiders and for some it’s the boogie man. But one thing that we all share in common is our dreams. Can you control them? Dreams have a way of seeking out your deepest fears and taking you on a virtual reality trip to places you’d never go when you’re awake. A nightmare may send you driving straight into a tornado, or walking into a dark room when you know a red-eyed monster is waiting behind the door. But dreams can also tell you stories of love, wit and treasures. You can wake laughing, crying, or screaming, because your dreams know who you are and they know how to attack. That’s not what Nightly Visits is about. THAT’S WHAT NIGHTLY VISITS IS!”
