Lisa Ardabout this book: For Patrick, being twelve years old can be challenging. Add to that the unusual ability to experience dreams as reality and you begin to understand Patrick's need for a little self-control. A "sweet" dream devouring the world's largest ice cream sundae can end with an enormous stomachache. A fall from a bike means Patrick wakes with a broken arm. Try explaining that to the emergency room doctor. Oh wait -- that would be Patrick's mom. She's a dream seeker too, as are Patrick's sister and brother. If Patrick follows the family's dream-seeking rules he can have cool nighttime adventures. But if he forgets....
I was inspired to write this book after reading a lot of fantasy books with my own kids. Dreams became the new vehicle by which kids could have fantastical adventures.
Kids 7-10 will enjoy this early middle grade fantasy series. Fright Flight is the first book in the series.
My publisher came up with the title, which is much better than the one I originally dreamed up. I gave advice on the cover; I wanted a sleeping child with a vision of the dream, to convey the dream adventures to come.
The hardest part of writing this book was editing. I spend 10x time editing than writing. Thank goodness for my critique group!
