This series deals with the more personal experiences, dreams, and fears of the Author's life. Knowing that certain aspects of herself and her history would forever set her apart from the rest of the world, Michon attempts to write stories in order to heal, in order to find answers, and in order to remain sane. Amidst a turbulent home life, a lack of resources, and various health issues that leave her wanting to commit suicide she writes to save her life. Determined to keep their Author alive, the characters from various series she's written cross into the real world to assist her (or at the very least sleep with her). Michon can't really decide whether they help or annoy her more. A lot of the characters have their own issues to deal with and it seems their journey across universes is more of a mixed blessing. Can they all truly come together and find that life is worth living? Will the Author finally be able to accept herself and face the world? Will she merely survive or will she find the fire she needs to thrive?
