Overview

After the death of her husband, forty-year-old Alice Williams is stuck in a rut. She's lived in tiny Quidnuc, Indiana her whole life. She has a dead-end job, and her only dating option--if she were actually interested in dating--is the local wife-beater. Not a pleasant outlook for the rest of her life. And now she's having the same dream every night. Fortunately, it features her favorite action hero movie star, Robert Diamond. Too bad he'll never show up on her front doorstep. Robert is having the same dream as Alice, and wants it to stop. He can't learn his lines for a new film--he's too distracted by the amazing kiss he shares with his dream woman. So after he tracks Alice down, they will try to explain the connection between the two of them, and why the story Alice wrote in a blank notebook has hijacked both their dreams. Then they can finally roll the credits on what's fast becoming a nightmare.

I'm addicted. And I know this. It's been going on for years. Since elementary school, in fact. Yet, mostly I've kept it rather quiet. The people closest to me know, of course. Mother and Dad, my two best friends, Kate and Barb. And Dean knew. He hadn't realized it when we were dating, but when we'd been married just a short time, I could not hide it from him. Dean hadn't exactly approved, but he also hadn't made an issue of it.

It simply wasn't discussed. Ever.

Of course, there's no discussing anything with Dean anymore. He was killed in a freak accident on our eighteenth wedding anniversary, poor thing.

That's the day everything changed for me. Suddenly, I was on my own for the first time ever. Just little me.

Well, just me and my thoughts.

Or rather, just me, my thoughts, and my addiction. No steadying influence to keep me grounded. It didn't take long to give in completely. And I don't know of any twelve-step programs for it. Not that I'd take part in one. You see, I don't regret my addiction.

I'm addicted to writing. That may seem silly, but it's serious. I finally realized just how serious--when I discovered I was writing the story of my life...
