Fourteen-year-old Dorothy Alston had to grow up fast when her father’s alcohol-induced carelessness resulted in a house fire that claimed her mother’s life. She finds a new life on her uncle’s farm in Florida…but not for long. Now, thirty-four years later, Dorothy’s in a permanent vegetative state and it’s up to Ellen Steward – the hard-working, slightly jaded administrator at an upscale rehab facility – to unravel the mystery that landed Dorothy in this condition. With some unexpected help, Ellen unwinds Dorothy’s fantastical narrative. It begins with a strange glass key that leads Dorothy to worlds that exist between time and space. She awakens a dark creature who feeds on the pain of the young. Ellen discovers that even she is wrapped up in Dorothy’s strange saga. If she wants to save her, Ellen will have to give up everything. But if she fails, much more is at stake than anyone could have imagined.

About the Author
It wasn't until his early twenties, sitting alone in his apartment, television off-because he didn't have the money to pay the cable bill-that he picked up a book titled Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000.
He was enthralled by Jonnie Goodboy Tyler and the Psychlos, but more importantly, he realized writing a story was something he could, and should, do.
Today, twenty years after his decision to learn the craft, Christopher J. Finn sees his dreams come true with Dorothy and the Glass Key, his debut novel.
