Sleepless (Amazon UK, Canada)
by Terri Clark (website, blog, myspace, ClassOf2K8)
Book Trailer

Eighteen-year-old Trinity Michaels has the ability to dream walk. It's a power she doesn't want, but it forever alters her life when she's unable to find an abducted teen before she's killed. While Trinity does help police capture the killer, Rafe Stevens, her involvement makes her his next target. Stevens pleads insanity and his convincing performance, aided by his despicable attorney, get him sentenced to a mental institute where a diabolical physician experiments on him. Now Rafe's escaped the sanitarium and he's after Trinity. Like her, he now has a special ability, one that allows him to stalk Trinity through her dreams. If he kills her in her sleep, she'll die for real. To survive she must find him first and the only person willing to help her is Dan Devlin, disillusioned son of the shady lawyer who knowingly aided Rafe in getting away with murder. Can she trust Dan with her safety, not to mention her heart?

This author has the same name as a major country singer, which, unfortunately, didn't make her website obvious. I was surprised that no link was provided from the publisher's site (hint, hint). However "author terri clark" did the trick. The plot seems vaguely Cthulhuoid with its diabolical doctor and weird experiments going on in mental hospitals. The connection with the shady lawyer's son is unexpected and interesting. The author is a member of Fangs, Fur and Fey.

This sounds like a fun YA, and I probably would have missed it had you not showcased it! :)
