I've always been a reader--loved fairy tales when I was young. I started writing when I had children of my own. My husband, Bob Maske, does all the art work for my stories. He did all the book covers and the animations that accompany each story.
I try to keep at least half of my stories and books free and would love to receive feedback from my readers. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at email@example.com Thanks to all you readers out there for your support.

Bobby is an elementary school student who learns to control his bad dreams after meeting the Dream Master. This control flows over into his real life, and Bobby becomes first popular, then cocky, then feared. In the end, he finds a happy medium and makes his peace with his dreams.
This is a very cute book, but I have two compaints:
1. The end is too easy. The Dream Master makes a suggestion, and Bobby agrees with him almost immediately. It seems like there was no real conflict or character growth. Bobby needs to meet some sort of conflict on his own.
2. The writing is great, but there are natural pauses where illustrations would bring it alive. This is really designed to be a picture book, and would do much better with a visual element.
Overall, a cute book, but I'm not sure if it's quite finished.
