Biography

"We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.” —Ernest Hemingway

8/18/15 Hello Everyone! I wanted to let all potential readers of The Blue Series know (hopefully before they read a book of mine), a few important points before deciding to embark on my story.
First: My entire series deals with God and humanity. He is an interwoven theme in the books, more so towards the end in Vol 7 and 8, but nonetheless, God is a very important character in my series. With that said, if you do not feel comfortable reading about my version of Him, please do not read my series. Good versus evil is a major play between some of my characters therefore, God has to be involved.
Secondly, My books are listed as dark fantasy, but I've also listed them in the LGBT section because there is both straight and gay sex in my series. Book 1 and 2, not so much, but it does heat up as the series goes along, however this series is NOT gay or straight erotica. If that is what you are all looking for, there are PLENTY of books out there to choose from.
And speaking of sex, my main characters are teenagers, and yes, they are placed in adult situations. They grow up in this series, which is why the first two books are limited in terms of the sexual content because obviously they are young. If this makes you uncomfortable, please do not read the series.
Lastly, there is bondage, rape, sexual violence, regular violence, profanity, and dark themes in this series. You may not see much in Volume 1, but trust me, it is dark. Please do not read this series if any of that offends you. That is the main reason why I have made Volume 1 free. If it is not your interest, you didn't have to pay for it. You may have spent some time reading it, but how many books have we all read that were a waste of time AND we paid for them?
I hope you all enjoy my series. It does not preach Christianity. I am not a Christian in that sense of the word. I do believe in God and as a writer, we are supposed to write about what we know.
Take care and happy reading,
Josephine Dillon

Bio: As a novice writer, I wrote the first three books from The Blue Series during the years 2006 through 2009. I then wrote Volume 5 through 8 in the last two years, finishing the series last fall. Will I write another book in the series, possibly a spin off? Yes, I think I might. I need lots of positive reviews though, so shout out how much you enjoy the series, and if there is a certain character or relationship you'd like me to continue writing about, let me know :)

I grew up in Oceanside, California, attended and survived Vista High School, and did attempt twice in one lonely summer, to drown at Oceanside Beach. I desperately wanted to be a boy as a child and teenager and envied my two brothers for their gender. I was considered a loner, didn't have any friends, so I created the story as a means of escape. It worked most of the time and I have to admit, it kept me out of trouble.

Smashwords book reviews by Josephine Dillon

  • Flicker Blue 1: Plain Jane on March 11, 2012

    I just read the first novella and all I can say is what an interesting, insightful, and thoroughly engaging story! I read most of it in one quick read because it was so entertaining. I look forward to book two!!!
  • Flicker Blue 2: Jigsaw on April 12, 2012

    I am loving this series. It is like nothing I've read before. I feel as though I am watching it on a movie screen and that says more than I can write about how Brea tells her story. Well done!
  • Only the Innocent on Aug. 18, 2012

    This was a very entertaining story! I read it on a plane from San Francisco to Raleigh surrounded by crying babies and it saved me! I loved the premise, enjoyed the imagery and the attention to detail Katrina adds to the background to give the reader an accurate picture of each scene. The characters Bette and Phillip are likeable, and the ending, perfect. A great read!
  • Reaper on April 17, 2013

    LOVED THIS BOOK! It's set up for a perfect sequel and griping til the very end. Brea Nicole Bond does an amazing job creating suspense throughout this story. It's been awhile since I've sat down to just read a book and not write, edit, proofread fifty times, etc, and I have to say, Reaper was a thrill, now one of my favorites. If you love to read about dark fantasy mixed with urban reality, read this book.
