About the Author

A survivor of sexual abuse, I have recently published the true account of my childhood, titled: Life After Hell: Surviving Sexual Abuse. I have tried to convey what happened to me as well as my journey to finally getting justice. A lot of my own experiences have gone into my fictional works, especially my first book The Man of My Dreams. I created a vigilante vampire that rescues women and children from rapists and child molesters...... I've loved Vampires and the paranormal ever since I can remember and always envisaged myself writing a book or two on the subject! I have written 5 books in The Dream Series so far: The Man of my Dreams, Be Careful What You Wish For and The Chosen One, Succubus: An Erotic Companion and A Match Made in Hell. All Paranormal Romance novels with Vampires(of course) as well as a bit of blood and gore thrown in and the 4th one is slightly on the erotic side! These characters are very close to my heart and I hope you will come to love them as much as I have. I recently finished a Contemporary Romance novella triology (Someone To Love Me series) and a New Adult novel, Entwined. I also published a short story (Why Won't Someone Help Me?) about my health issues and the trouble with getting diagnosed or treated for invisible illnesses.

I was given this free for my honest review and it is a great story,it grabs your attention from the start and you find your emotions are a roller coaster,truly is a great story. Riley and Hunter are young loves dream that it can last forever and in some deep way it does, this tells their story of the bond so strong even in death they would know the other was watching, amazing read

He’d slowly become my best friend, my soul mate   5 stars OH MY!  This is a terrific story, but be warned to keep the tissues close by!  I absolutely loved this story, even though I bawled & sobbed like a baby.  It is very beautifully written and it reaches deep in you and pulls you right into the story and  stays with you long after you have reached “the end"!  I enjoyed how open & honest this story is, both in the details but also the subject as well.  Riley & Hunter are only about to start college & an apprenticeship, respectfully, when they finally admit that their feelings run much more deeper than as the platonic best buddies that they have been.  So they decide to take it to the next level before they are separated by the 5 hr distance of her college.  Gladys doesn't shy away from the details in any way, and for that I both admire & applaud her.  One example is too many times the sex is non-existent or glossed over quickly when teens are involved, however it is not explicitly detailed and it is written with a very sweet, tender & romantic undertone where the characters genuinely love each other.  The reason I mention it at all is because it brings another layer to the story and after you finish the book, you will see just how much it enriches the story and makes it that much more real & so heart wrenchingly wonderful!  Gladys has a very beautiful way of telling this story from Riley's point of view.  Even though the HEA is different than one you might expect, it is still a very brilliantly poignant & precious one.  The use of the prologue is pure genius!!  This is my first book that I have read of Gladys' but I guarantee you that it will not be the last!!  If this is a great example of her fantastic story telling & terrific writing talents, I cannot wait to get lost in her other books!
