Summer Dreaming Challenge
This summer I’ve been invited to participate in a Summer Dreaming Challenge. The event is to encourage children to remember and write down their dreams. There will be tips and games to help children bring their dream intentions into their waking lives, and do things in their waking lives that will enhance their dreams. These will include stories of famous dreams that changed people’s lives. The event will include interviews with different authors who have written about dreams or whose book came from a dream. Star Rider on the Razor’s Edge came from a dream, so I was invited to be one of the authors.

Below is book review on STAR RDER ON THE RAZOR’S EDGE from Reading Addictions
“There are a lot of moving parts to this novel and a lot of action. I liked the way the characters were relatable even through it was a Sci-Fi Novel. The Sc-Fi aspect is very well done and the imagery and setting is amazing. The author really brings the world to life through words. Get ready to be immersed in the world and captivated by the characters she has created.” by blogger at My Reading Addiction.
