About Steven Misosky

In Changed Forever, I shared with you some interesting things about the number thirteen. There will be more in book two. But, do you really believe there are energy patterns like that which affect our lives? Let me tell you a few things about thirteen in my life. First, my name has thirteen letters. I was born in the sign of Scorpio, which is represented in tarot by Key 13. I got my first job at the age of thirteen. I worked there until I graduated from high school. Then, I got one other job which I stayed at until I turned twenty-six. At that time, thirteen years after I got my first job, I switched to a good paying job which I kept for many years. There are other significant thirteens, one in particular that I needed, but this is a short bio so I’ll skip to the present. On July 13, 2012, a Friday the thirteenth, a freak accident at work broke a bone in my hand. It was bad and needed surgery. I decided it wasn't a problem but an opportunity. Maybe life was telling me I should use my hands another way. I used the time to prepare myself, and get The Dreams of Sara Knight ready for publication. Exactly one year later, on July 13, I received the edited copy of my manuscript back from my editor. I was ready to go. So, here we are in 2013 and my life course is changing again as I publish my first novel. And by the way, as I do this, I have been studying with a western mystery school for 13 years. So, you decide, is life more about patterns of energy than we normally consider? It certainly is. Someday I’ll write the whole story and share it with you.
A good place to begin exploring this for yourself would be looking at some short videos about cymatics on Youtube. They are very cool! They demonstrate the relationship between energy vibrations and definite, universal patterns. Do that, and you’re on your way to understanding how energy patterns affect your life. If you follow this clue like an investigative journalist, you’ll learn many wonderful things.

Review by: ohvanessa on July 7, 2014 :
Super interesting concepts.

I think Misosky does a great job incorporating spirituality and next-level musings I've had as an adult in this young adult novel. I gravitate to YA because I feel some authors overcomplicate things and it is a real talent to be able to say something simply.

I love the focus on the unexplainable and human curiosities. Especially dreams and superstitions. Sara & Kara reminded me of my sister and I when we were younger - more open minded and willing to believe in things.

If you're looking for a book that is difficult to put down and makes you think, look no further.

The way of writing the book was excellent. I loved the way the story proceed on with the dreams of Sara & Kara. They are twins with their different characteristics. The flow of this book was great and it's really a different concept, no doubt. Nicely written and so organized. Must read !!

Review by: Kris Richards on Oct. 1, 2013 :
Sara and Kara are twins, with the unique ability to interpret their dreams. The story unfolds and the reader is introduced to the themes of metaphysics, kara, subconscious, and interpretation. The book is an interesting concept. As YA we’ve become accustomed to ‘sparkly vampires’ and ‘romance’ novels that neither leave the young reader with questions or stimulate their brain – this, however, allows the reader to interpret the world differently and expand and explore their perceived beliefs; the author manages to do this without an overbearing authorial voice and bias – not an easy feat.

The flow and pace of the book was a bit hit and miss, at times I felt the author lost the magical flow with some dialogue, and there were times that I felt a little jarred out of the story with a few oddly chosen phrases – but the editing was good and the length just right.

Overall, this is a very unique concept – and not one I’ve read since Neal Stevenson’s novels.
I’d happily read more speculative novels like this.

Review by: Infinity Dreamt on Sep. 16, 2013 :
This was an interesting and informative approach on dreams and individual spirituality, tailored to be understood by a teen audience. The reader gets to follow Kara and Sara, who are both twins, as they learn how to interpret their dreams, as well as see the bigger picture of the world and where we fit into it all.

There was a lot of family unity throughout the book and much to learn, all told as a heart-warming story that really pulls you in. This is a great book to start with if you’re looking to expand your way of thinking and holistic approach to life, and not in a textbook-style kind of way like many books of this topic are written as.

Review by: Addy on Sep. 15, 2013 :
I just finished reading Changed Forever by Steven Misosky. I love this book so much that I devoured it. Read it in one sitting. I can’t express in words how superb this book is. Not only is the writing excellent, the story itself is entertaining and enlightening.

Although, it is a young adult novel, I was fascinated by the things I discovered while reading this book. Steven Misosky tackles some complicated issues in a way that got my attention. Steven answered so many questions that do arise in our curious mind. He explained why yawns are contagious. Exploration of dreams, the universe, the conscious mind, they all draw in the reader into the book.

The book is not without its own flaws, but it is a very good book. I strongly recommend it for anyone looking for something good to read.

Review by: Ade Lina on Sep. 14, 2013 :
When I read the first pages of the book, I thought It would be just ,,another ordinary book”, but I must admit, Sara and Kara really caught my attention. I really loved the picture of the perfect family. The members of the family were very close to each other, and the parents were investing a lot of time in their daughters’ education.
Although they were very young, Sara and Kara were very smart. When their parents decided to tell them the story of the Heart Knowers, the girls were very open-minded. First, the girls found out why are we yawning, then they learned about the existence of Heart Knowers. They treated the subject with maturity and responsibility, and they didn’t hesitate to ask questions and satisfy their curiosity. Their grandmother was also involved in their education. She was the one who took the girls to see a hypnotist.
The most interesting part of the story was when their grandmother gave them a dream oracle, where the girls could write their dreams. Both girls started to have unusual dreams. The girls were very excited, like a child who just received a new toy. They shared with their mother the dreams. Soon, these dreams started to change their lives.
The more I was reading, the more I was fascinated by the things I was discovering. All those things about our spiritual development have captured my attention completely. This book was different from all the books I've read so far. When I finished the book, I felt very bad, and I started to miss Sara and Kara. I will never forget this book, and I will probably re-read it.
