Dreamspeak is a fast-paced mystery novel with psychic overtones and a hint of romance. Cassie Alexander is a recent widow who fears a recurring dream, just as she has feared all the past dreams. Still mourning the loss of her husband, she struggles to return to a normal life when she is called to jury duty. Belief in her psychic abilities is difficult to deny, as the eerie, wintry dream plagues her sleep night after night.

Cassie's eighteen-year-old daughter, Libby, still on an emotional roller-coaster from her father's sudden death, rebels against her mother's protective nature. Libby's new relationship with Nick lures her into the dangerous world he inhabits.

Once chosen for the jury, Cassie meets Ross Fairchild, a high-living, self-made millionaire who's stuck in a cold, distant marriage. They develop a guarded friendship and when he learns of her psychic abilities, he encourages her to trust her dreams.

Scenes in the jury room show Cassie interacting with the remaining cast of characters that make up the jury. Franklin, the man in white, quotes scripture to Cassie. With her strict religious upbringing, she knows the verses, particularly those regarding biblical prophets, often laid on her by her father when she was a child with dreams. She understands Franklin's implied threats and fears for her life.

As the deliberations conclude, Cassie is convinced this group of twelve has made a wrong decision. She enlists Ross' help in pursuing the truth. Libby, meanwhile, is drawn into a secret getaway with Nick, which turns into a terrifying night. Cassie senses the danger to her daughter as signs from the dream finally come together.

The fast-paced conclusion brings Cassie to the realization that her dreams are not to be ignored. Dreamspeak appeals to our universal interest in the paranormal mind and its possibilities. Cassie's future lies in her dreams.

My thanks go to friend and photographer, Kay Botel, for her help with the cover for this novel. I am grateful to my critique groups in AZ and IL, who have read and improved much of the manuscript. Family and friends have supported me in my efforts to put good stories to paper. My husband, Jim, puts up with my hours of computer time and patiently listens to new ideas.
