Adam C. Veile about this book: The Dreamcatcher Adventures is a fast-paced action-adventure novel for young readers. In it, seventh-grader Blake Monroe teams up with the ghost of his Wild West ancestor, a rowdy cowboy named Gray, to track down a missing ransom before an evil outlaw can get his hands on it. Blake's more of the indoor-type, and Gray's never even seen a car, a phone, or even a light bulb before, so they're an unlikely duo to ride across modern-day Montana and save the day.
The book was a lot of fun to write, and I think you'll have just as much fun reading it. I came up with the idea about five years ago during National Novel Writing Month, and it's taken me quite a while to craft the story and get the quirky illustrations I needed. I drove through parts of Montana and South Dakota, making sure I got the setting right, and did months of historical research. In the end, it all came together for one exhilarating book.
I can't wait to share this story with you!
