What was your inspiration for writing SLEEPER?
I am a big dreamer. I used to talk in my sleep and there was at least one sleepwalking event in my childhood that still weirds me out. I’ve always found sleep fascinating – particularly the unknown aspects of it. When I read an article in the New York Times Magazine back in 2003 about parasomnias that included R.E.M. Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD), I knew that someday I wanted to explore this affliction that caused people to physically act out their dreams while they slept.
