‘Astral Dan & The English Teacher’ is a contemporary fantasy thriller about Daniel O’Hare, a fifteen-year-old schoolboy who has vivid dreams of disasters and the suffering of people around the world. With the aid of a friend, Simon, who holds a great interest in the paranormal, Daniel discovers that his dreams are not dreams but actual events taking place. Daniel’s dreams are astral projections, whereby his consciousness leaves his physical body and travels in his astral body, on which there are no limitations as to distance or environment where Daniel travels. During one such astral journey Daniel witnesses the kidnapping of Sarah Hamilton, a young, sexy and provocative English teacher at the private school he attends. She is the subject of many a student’s crush, not least Daniel’s.Sometimes humorous, always exciting, the reader is taken on a roller coaster of adventure as Daniel, instructed by Simon, harnesses his astral ability and endeavors to secure Sarah Hamilton’s release, more often than not using his new found talent. As well as Carlos, the psychotic ex-boyfriend and kidnapper of Sarah, and his inept henchmen, George and Jake, Daniel encounters many diverse characters in his quest while trying, with varying success, to appear normal to his parents and others.After being rebuffed as a lovesick schoolboy by the local police when tries to inform them that Sarah Hamilton has gone missing without saying why and how he knows, Daniel strikes up an association with Jason Jeffries, whom he discovers during an astral projection. The events that unfold during the projection lead Daniel to believe Jason is trying to help Sarah, but after making contact with him conventionally, Daniel soon discovers that Jason Jeffries is not who or what he appears to be. What transpires between Daniel and Grant Stevens, a.k.a. Jason Jeffries, inadvertently leads to Daniel’s own capture and imprisonment.During the ensuing police investigation into Daniel’s disappearance Simon explains what has been going on. Despite finding it impossible to believe, but having nothing else to go on, the police follow up on what Simon tells them, leading them to discover that, amazingly, Simon might have been telling the truth. The information Simon provides also leads to the release of Sarah and Daniel and the ultimate downfall of Carlos.
