Why I wrote Dead Dreams
I wanted to write a story for young ladies –girls between 13 and 18, –on the cusps of adulthood, but who are not quite out of the house yet. Dead Dreams, Book 1 is a suspense thriller but it is so much more. Without being preachy Dead Dreams hopes to impress upon the young readers the deceit out there in the world.
Having homeschooled my children and being around other girls coming from a more sheltered lifestyle I noticed that in their innocence and youth they tended to jump onto things that look attractive without weighing hidden consequences. I wanted to explore possibilities that could be present in each young person as she travels in this journey of self-discovery and finding out for herself, when enough is enough; that limit that separates what’s acceptable from too dangerous; and the possibilities these choices could lead to. Also, as a Christian author, I wanted readers who have a Christian background to come to the conclusion on their own, that dreams absent of God and His direction could be deadly.
I have always enjoyed a good thriller mystery so I wanted to write a young adult book that has a strong message yet is still filled with intrigue, mystery, and suspense. Hence, Dead Dreams. It is a part of a series, and the first book leaves questions that will be answered in book 2.
Eighteen-year-old Brie O’Mara has so much going for her: a loving family in the sidelines, an heiress for a roommate, and dreams that might just come true. Big dreams–of going to acting school, finishing college and making a name for herself. She is about to be the envy of everyone she knew. What more could she hope for? Except her dreams are about to lead her down the road to nightmares. Nightmares that could turn into a deadly reality.
Dead Dreams, Book 1, a young contemporary adult psychological thriller and mystery that will keep you asking for more.
