Friday May 10, 2013 is release day for the book Nightmares by author Donna Jean McDunn and so…
Today, Natter and Review would like to welcome back author Donna Jean McDunn. Here is a short biography of our visitor.
Donna Jean McDunn lives in Iowa with her husband, four cats and two dogs. She is the mother of three daughters and the grandmother of eight. Donna enjoys spending time with her family and friends, camping, fishing, bicycle riding, listening to music and dancing. She is a third degree black belt in Songham Taekwondo and loves working out. Donna writes fiction for young adults and women in her off hours, but spends most of her days as an administrative assistant. She hopes someday to retire and write full time.
N&R: Hi Donna, you’re back. Welcome to Natter and Review once again. Donna is one of my new authors with MuseItUp Publishing and tomorrow, May 10, 2013 is a very special day for Donna, as her first book, the young adult paranormal romance, Nightmares, is being released from MuseItUp Publishing. I bet you are excited!
DJM: Thank you, Lynne. Yes, I have to keep reminding myself, all of this is real!
N&R: How about sharing a little of the story, Nightmares.
DJM: Eighteen-year old Emily Preston has it all. She’s beautiful, strong and confident. But just weeks before graduating from high school, the nightmares she’d experienced as a child, begin to plague her once more. When a mysterious voice warns that she must remember her past and accept her gift of seeing into the future in order to save her boyfriend’s life, she believes she’s losing her mind. The nightmares escalate into visions of long ago and memories begin to return. Will Emily allow herself to accept the gift or will she lose everything, including her life.
DJM: Tagline for Nightmares: Emily must accept her gift of clairvoyance and remember her past, when a psychopath returns to kill again.
Here is a short excerpt from the book.
“She knew it was too soon to expect Tony’s return, but peered into the darkness anyway. She saw her own distorted reflection in the glass. The images shifted and changed as she watched. She felt herself being drawn into the shadows until they completely dissolved. She saw the child from her nightmares lying in a bed asleep, while a terrible thunderstorm raged outside.
Lightning flashed around the room and a crack of thunder rattled the windows. The child sat up and for the first time Emily could see her face and blond hair. A dog howled and the girl’s eyes widened with fear as she scooted off the bed.
Her heart hammered inside her own chest to the same rhythm as the child’s. Emily wanted to warn the little girl to lie down and stay where she’d be safe. She wanted to tell her it was too late, she’d already run out of time.
“No!” Emily screamed when the child ran toward the window. “Don’t look.”’
