Book Summary

Are dreams mere fantasy, or are they real? When Mary Parker finds a magic book everything in her life changes. As she reads, she dreams, and the woman sunk in depression after her mother’s death is transformed to a vibrant beauty. She gives the book and the phenomenon a name, 'falling awake’. The book seems to twist others to act out of character too. Joe’s usually dour father turns visionary and gambles with the factory where Mary works, and Joe, the metaphysical daydreamer, engages in a secret sexual eternal triangle to keep the dull routine of the accounts department at bay. The dominant partner in the triangle is Clem; dark and dangerous. Extricating himself from Clem, Joe meets Mary. They fall in love and their marriage is arranged in haste when Mary falls pregnant, but this is no happy ever after tale. Their joy turns to grief when Mary miscarries and she turns inward to her darkening 'falling awake' world – now more psychic than real. Then Joe's father dies, and he has to fight for control of the factory. He falls into Clem’s clutches again, and to make things worse, he believes Mary is going mad, and the people and places she remembers all just dreams dreamt inside her insanity. But then how can Joe remember them too? Magic or madness? Karma or crazy? For Mary and Joe, the impossible - and the deadly ghosts of their dreams - are only a breath away. Falling Awake is a dark paranormal romance thriller about a girl, a book, love and loss, mental illness, mystery and magic.

About the Author

Even as a child I read avidly, working my way along the shelves in the local library until I’d run out of books. The love of literature continued into adult life, with a degree in English Literature and Fine Art. Now, with a miscellany of careers from finance to teaching, nursery management to event management, behind me, I still read voraciously but also now write with equal passion.

I'm a B.R.A.G. Medallion honoree (https://www.bragmedallion.com/award-winning-books/thriller/patchwork-man/) for Patchwork Man, the first in my Patchwork People trilogy thriller series, self-published in 2014/15, and also for Chained Melodies (http://www.bragmedallion.com/award-winning-books/literary-fiction/chained-melodies/), the story of a transgender. I have now self-published seven fictional titles in total, plus a non-fiction book on writing. As well as writing full time, I also teach workshops on creative writing, and in 2014 was the Chair of literary festival.

I'm always delighted to swap newsletters with authors writing in similar genres to me - mystery/thrillers, literary fiction and writing theory. I also have books out on audio so audiobook promotion is of interest to me too.
