Dreamwalker

by Andrea Heltsley

Persephone’s League of Immortals Series, Book 1

Book Description

Noel Kennedy lost her boyfriend, her job and her dignity all in one week. Then something happened and she began to dream of this stranger she had never met. She couldn’t resist the man of her dreams named Jared especially when she met him in real life. Entranced, she slowly unraveled a world she was meant to stay out of. Her life was not what she thought it was once a sexy Boone stepped into the mix and shook things up. Can she escape a life of servitude or immortality for a chance at love?

1.  Tell us a little about yourself.  
I am an ex-biologist with an eccentric imagination and two loving Italian Greyhounds.

2.  What made you want to become a writer? 
I always wanted to be a writer but it didn’t become a goal until I read Young Goodman Brown by Nathaniel Hawthorne in high school.  The story was so vivid and interesting that I knew I wanted to create something that beautiful.

3.  Who or what gives you inspiration?
I love using magazines.  Pictures and images spark my imagination or create a thread of thought.

4.  Tell us about Dreamwalker.
Dreamwalker is a story about a girl whose life becomes very complicated.  She gets dumped then starts to dream of the man of her dreams.  Her life gets turned upside down when he becomes all too real.  She is shoved into a world where dreams meet reality.  Then she meets Boone and he is the man of her here and now.  She has one life but two loves she must choose between amidst a very dangerous world.  It’s all very intriguing up until the very end.

5.  What’s the hardest part of being a writer? 
Editing, editing, editing….

6.  What do you need around you to write (special drink, lucky items, etc)?  
I always write with a White Barn candle burning and my IPod playing.  I am big on ambiance.  I also like to write in bed with my dogs snuggled up at my feet:)

7.  What are some of your favorite books? 
I love too many.  Rachel Vincent, Kim Harrison, Shelly Crane, Quinn Loftis, Kelly Armstrong, Chloe Neill, Molly Harper and Sophie Kinsella are some of my favorite authors.

8.  Are your characters based on anyone you know? 
No, all of them are completely made up.  I wish Boone and Jared were real, right?

9.  What, if anything, are you working on right now?  
I am finishing my creepy YA paranormal romance Dancing with Death.  It is scheduled to be released in August.

10.  Why do you love writing?  
I love writing because I can let my vivid imagination run wild.  I live in my imagination most of the time, it is a fun place to be:)
About the Author
I am a biology nerd who loves reading just about anything paranormal and some chick lit.  I love my Italian greyhounds, my family, sunshine and summertime and most of all books! When I am not writing, I am reading.  I have been writing on paper and in my head since grade school. It is pretty bad when you are at your job and daydreaming about writing a scene. I have fallen victim more than once, so I decided to make a go of it:)  I am an entertainment girl! I love all things books, music, movies and television. Coffee is my best friend and I think I should own a Starbucks by now..lol.
