The Wi-Fi of Dreams Book One: Wilson indeed!
Meet a most unlikely hero … Wilson
In The Market Square, the fantastical setting for his dream activities, Wilson can take night classes on any subject and absorb a wealth of knowledge from a few hours’ sleep. As though logging into The Wi-Fi of Dreams to download data. As his childhood passes, both wary of, and reticent to acknowledge his extraordinary ability, Wilson attempts to lead a normal life and stay beneath the radar of family and friends.
His cover is blown when a new person logs in, Daisy Meadowcroft. During a chance encounter in The Market Square, they agree to meet the next day and are propelled from a dream world into the reality of a coffee shop in the centre of Manchester. Enthralled by their shared gift, they strike up a close friendship and encourage each other to seek a rational, scientific explanation for their unique talents. When a butterfly causes chaos, the pair need to join forces and solve a rare problem.

Five Star Reviews for Wilson indeed
Read it in 24 hours! I can imagine this being made into a film. Great adventure!
A gem of a book. Pure escapism and so imaginative. Enough ‘science’ to be intriguing. A real page turner. Our book club read it and loved it.
I read this as it was selected by our Book Club. It’s a fascinating blend of reality, pseudo science, humour, love and adventure, which had me hooked from the first few pages. The Manchester locations made it all the better to me.
The Wi-Fi of Dreams Book Two: Butterfly Assassins
Meet a most unlikely hero … Wilson
Sally Bennett was an orphan and only child. Incomprehensibly, at the age of ten, both her parents died in quick succession. Proof that fate deals our cards blind. One can be dealt three buses in a row, a run of traffic lights on red, or a pair of deaths; it all depends on the shuffle. Destiny was playing its hand and having led with a heart, the face card of her mother, Sally had no other option but to follow suit.
When Wilson and Daisy play with the Tetris blocks of the future, problems begin to stack up. Butterfly Assassins is the sequel to Wilson indeed! and takes you back to Sally Bennett, a car accident, and the intervention of a butterfly outside Davenport train station.

Five Star reviews for The Wi-Fi of Dreams series
Don’t want to put any spoilers here, just to say this book will give you imagination overload.
I was again captivated by this highly original and unique series. Steve Walsh has clearly carried on with his exceptional character building to keep them fresh and memorable. His world building, again, made the Market place a vivid and as real as possible in my head. The people there with their intricate scheming all burst with life for me and really add that interesting twist that kept me reading long after I should have stopped.
Beyond The Books
You have to read the first novel by Steve Walsh (Wilson Indeed) to understand the second but it’s worth it because Butterfly Assassins is better. I read it in two days – a real page turner. This is a tale of living characters interacting with the after-life via dreams – not a ghost story as such although there is an element of that. If you want a different take on the supernatural, this is for you. An added bonus for me was lots of references to various areas and landmarks in and around Manchester. I’m looking forward to number three in the series.
