Dream Doctor Cover

“I didn’t expect to be woken up by someone I don’t know dreaming about killing somebody.  I thought I was done with that once and for all…”
But Sara’s not done with it.  As if adjusting to life as a newlywed and starting medical school weren’t difficult enough, she’s started seeing the dreams of everyone around her, again.  Before everything is said and done, those dreams might destroy Sara’s hopes of becoming a doctor, wreck her marriage and even end her life…

J.J. DiBenedettoJ.J. (James) DiBenedetto was born in Yonkers, New York. He attended Case Western Reserve University, where as his classmates can attest, he was a complete nerd. Very little has changed since then.
He currently lives in Arlington, Virginia with his beautiful wife and their cat (who has thoroughly trained them both). When he's not writing, James works in the direct marketing field, enjoys the opera, photography and the New York Giants, among other interests.
The "Dreams" series is James' first published work.

·         Do you have specific techniques you use to develop the plot and stay on track?
Not really.  I have a very general outline in my head of where the story will go, and I work to that.  Sometimes I’ll write the later scenes that I know are going to come up and then work backwards to put the whole story together.
·         Are your characters in the book based on anyone you know?
Some of the secondary characters (the people who fill out the world) are, but not the main characters.  Except in the sense that parts of me, and people I’ve known, naturally will come out in anything I write.
·         Was there any research involved in your work?
Lots!  Not so much for the first book, “Dream Student” – that takes place at a (very) thinly veiled version of my college, at the time I was there.  But in book #2, “Dream Doctor”, my heroine goes to medical school, and I didn’t know a thing about what that was like, so I had to do quite a bit of research to make it believable.
