DREAM WATERS tour — author interview

Yesterday was a busy day!  In addition to my guest post on Laurie’s Paranormal Thoughts and Reviews, I did an interview on author Danita Minnis’s blog.

Check out the interview—find out what my favorite ice cream flavor is, the first story that made an indelible impression on me, how I develop my plot & characters, and other random facts about me—and leave a comment on the blog post for another chance to win the $50 Amazon/Barnes & Noble gift card at the end of my tour!


You can add DREAM SIGHT (Book 3 in the Dream Waters series) to your “Want to Read” list on Goodreads!

It won’t be long now!  After a few unanticipated delays, I’m thrilled to tell you that DREAM SIGHT (Book 3 in the Dream Waters series) should be available within the next few weeks!  You can add it to your “Want to Read” list on Goodreads now!

Book 3 is my personal favorite, as it tells the backstory I’ve been dying to tell since I started the series.  Several of the scenes have been in my head for ages, not so patiently waiting to be shared.


Why I write from multiple points of view.

I was sifting through old notes I’d jotted down while working on the original intro to Dream Waters book 1 earlier today.  Though this opening never found its way into the finished book, I thought I’d share it with you now-

My name is Charlie Oliver and this is my story, but I am not the only teller of this tale.  I am but one of its many voices, and I think that’s the way it was meant to be.  Life is a symphony and one lone instrument could never do it justice.  It’s the weaving and interconnecting of the sounds of each instrument that moves us.  Perhaps that’s because connection is what we all ultimately seek.  This world is a place filled with heartache and pain.  Many souls wander through it desperate and alone.  Other souls pass by them every day but they never connect.  They are but one lone instrument playing only portions of a song, unaware that an orchestra surrounds them.  If they were to connect, their lone grief-stricken notes would become something magical.  Listen to our words and we’ll share with you a symphony.
