Who Is Mistral Dawn?

Mistral Dawn is a thirty-something gal who has lived on both coasts of the US but somehow never in the middle. She currently resides in the Southeast US with her kitty cats (please spay or neuter! :-)) where she works as a hospital drudge and attends graduate school. Taken By The Huntsman is her first effort at writing fiction and if it is well received she has ideas for several more novels and short-stories in this series.

A #Peek & A #Tweak! :-)

Hey Everyone!! :-)

Just a quick announcement today.  I have both a series title and a book title for my WIP!!  I know, maybe not as exciting as you'd hoped, but the next step is getting a cover, and that's exciting, right? :-)  Okay, so from now on, it's no longer Petri's Story.  The title for the book is Rainbow Dreams, and it's book one in the Petri Dish Chronicles.  Now, I bet you're wondering where the title Rainbow Dreams came from, aren't you? ;-)  Well, take a look...

Opening her eyes, Petri looked around and realized the strange people were back. They often seemed to visit her dreams when she was at her lowest. As a whole, they seemed to exist as an intertwining fog of rainbows, impossible to separate out from one another. But some of them, two or three, stood out as distinct personalities.

It was these who reached out to Petri. She still couldn't hear their whispers, but as she got older they seemed to get closer. She thought that maybe, one day, she would be able to communicate with them. Still, she could tell they wanted to help her. Several times a wisp of fog seemed to drift near and offer itself to her. When she breathed it in, a warm, happy feeling suffused her.

Being with the dream people was like snuggling into one of Chessie's hugs; only it went deeper and lasted longer. Petri had never known a contentment in the waking world like what she found in these dreams. It made her want to stay forever.

The rainbows swirled around her, enveloping her in their embrace, as the voices whispered soothing sounds in her ears. After a while, she found she didn't have to passively accept the warmth from the cloud, she could pull it into herself as she wanted it. The whispers seemed to approve.

Hmmm....I wonder what that's about. ;-)  I guess you'll all have to read the book to find out!  Thanks, everyone, for stopping by today.  And don't forget to check back tomorrow for the next installment in Mistral Dawn's Musings! :-)
