What Do You Dream About Asks Author Terri Rochenski

EotS SALE bannerI love when I get to hear a few awesome thoughts from fellow friends and authors. So today, I’m sharing my friend Terri Rochenski’s dreams…and maybe a few of my own at the end. I am also sharing her new book release, Secret Secret of the Souls (Pool of Souls #2). Please check out it out…I don’t think you’ll be disappointed 😉

So here is first a little about the book…

SecretOfTheSouls-Cover-Final500Title: Secret of the Souls (Pool of Souls #2)
Author: Terri Rochenski
Publisher: J. Taylor Publishing
Release Date: October 6, 2014
Keywords: Adult Fantasy

Blurb:
Thrust out of their homes by a human High Priest on a vengeful mission, the Natives of Derlund no longer have a place to call their own. One escaped capture, however, and now she, Hyla, is the only one who can save her people.

For, Hyla, though, saving her nation isn’t her ultimate goal—returning to the Pool of Souls is. Becoming its Guardian and preserving their faith is her heart’s desire. The perils of her current journey, though, could leave her unable to fulfill that dream.

To find her way back to the Pool, Hyla must live among dangerous, powerful humans willing to defend the Natives, and must submit herself—her Talents—to them. While her protection is paramount, plots to end Hyla’s life will push her to her physical and emotional limits.

On the edge of sanity, her courage tested, and convictions nearly broken, Hyla’s final test of loyalty to her faith comes with the death of one she could have loved.

A bit about Terri…

Tracey Hanlon Photography

Terri started writing stories in the 8th grade, when a little gnome whispered in her brain. Gundi’s Great Adventure never hit the best seller list, but it started a long love affair with storytelling.

Today she enjoys an escape to Middle Earth during the rare ‘me’ moments her three young children allow. When not playing toys, picking them back up, or kissing boo-boos, she can be found sprawled on the couch with a book or pencil in hand, and toothpicks propping her eyelids open.

Finally! The moment you’ve been waiting for…

…Terri Rochenski and her guest post on Dreams.

I’ll be honest – I get SO jealous of fellow author friends who chat on Facebook and writer forums about the vivid dreams they have, and the synopsis or outline that gets scribbled to completion the next morning.
o_O
Never had it happen. Not a single time.
My dreams are along these lines…
– A field full of snakes I need to get across, *SHUDDER!!*, and no matter where I look to put my foot, there’s a slivery, hissing nasty just dying to sink his fangs into my ankles.

– Sight-seeing with a group of tourists, and we get attacked by a dozen or so massive, starving grizzleys. *GULP*

– Then there’s the ‘You hurt my family and I’ll stab you with a pitchfork!’ dreams. Yup. Really dreamt that one. More than once. NO, I don’t have such psychotic thoughts while awake!

– And of course, there’s the occasional warmth-inducing fantasy which brings out the cougar in me.
Shhhhh. Don’t tell!!
So, does this mean I don’t have a creative mind? I don’t think so. Just means I’ve got to work a bit harder for my stories to come together!
Here’s to hoping…
How about you? Ever dream a novel into existence? Get jealous of those who do?

And my dreams?
I remember my first nightmare actually…at 4-years old I was already dreaming about crazy animals like dragons and gryphons and other strange mythical animals.  I remember waking up and screaming for my mom. The dream had been something like this…

…Sitting in the back of my dad’s old 1978 Yellow Scout, we drove down a dirt road, the dust flying at dusk. Something caught the sunlight, glittery and bright. It moved at me. It came for me. Racing. Wild. The back of the Scout was open for some reason and my jaw drop. I couldn’t tear my eyes away from its eyes. A Gryphon. Giant and muscley jumped for my legs on the end of the Scout…

…and then I woke up.

You see, I have always loved fairy tales…and fantasy stories. They make my mind wander with endless possibilities…
And what about a good dream you might ask? I dream of many things like you…happiness. Smiles. Success for everyone I love and above all things…helping others smile. And if my writing career takes off again, well, that would be pretty amazing too. 🙂

So here’s to your awesome Wednesday! Thank you for joining me.

And now for the free stuff…but first, all, have a lovely Wednesday. May all your dreams come true…but of course, you might have to work just a bit to get them. 🙂

  1. Gryphon? I don’t think I even knew what that WAS when I was 4! Bless.

    My own youngest daughter woke up at 5 this morning crying because of a bad dream. Maybe My Little Ponies isn’t such a good idea… LOL!

    Thanks so much for hosting me today!
