I’m so excited to announce that my new book, Every Waking Dream, is available for pre-order through Amazon! The release date is September 1st, 2021.
This book took a lot of work. It was my first experience writing a young adult psychological thriller. My main goal was to keep readers on their seat and allow them to piece the puzzle together as the story unfolds.
I’m a huge Nancy Drew fan, having read most of the books and played all the PC games from Her Interactive (yes – I own all physical copies of the 33 games they’ve released including the original and revamped versions of Secrets Can Kill.) Needless to say, I wanted something as exciting as that with some hard hitting issues that happen in everyday life.
Another thing I’m a huge fan of and definitely influenced some of the happenings in Every Waking Dream is the show Law and Order: SVU. In fact, I love Detective Benson so much that I want to name my future daughter after her. Talk about a name to live up to!
With all that being said, don’t forget to check out my new novel on Amazon on Kindle and as a paperback. It’ll be available on other platforms like Nook on September 1st.
Every Waking Dream
When your only clue is a dream…
Having to adjust to a new town, school, and friends were not what Aislin Smith had expected after spending the summer locked inside a rehabilitation center. After getting busted for taking drugs to stay awake, her psychiatrist learns the real reason behind Aislin’s fear of sleeping—she experiences a phenomenon known as dream telepathy.
Afraid to expose her secret to anyone else, she tries to live an everyday life after being prescribed a sleeping aid with the convenient side effect of having dreamless nights of sleep. But once her chance at peace is taken away, Aislin finds herself in the odd dream of a mysterious girl. She thinks nothing of it until she sees the girl’s face again plastered on the front page news as a missing person in a string of unsolved cases. Struggling to keep her reality together, Aislin decides to take matters into her own hands and find the missing children. If there’s one thing she’s sure of, it’s that the dead don’t dream.
