Julie C. Gilbert

Author Julie C. Gilbertabout this book: Ashlynn's Dreams is the tale of two girls who go from acquaintances to good friends thanks to being kidnapped. They each tell their story to a psychologist in the form of journal entries and letters (emails).

I wrote this book because I had done a series of short stories about this neat little kid named Jillian. Then, somebody told me that human trafficking is still a problem today, and I wanted to use the character to explore the topic in a YA friendly way.

Ashlynn the name means "Dream" so the title came naturally from the character Jillian, who is a genetically altered child with the ability to shape people's dreams. Some might argue that Jillian's Dreams might have been a better title, but I have my reasons for going with Ashlynn.

It took me about a month to come up with the rough draft, though if you count proofing time you could stretch that out to a year or more.

What I want to say to my readers:
Human trafficking isn't the center of this book, but it is an integral part of the sequels. I want to tell anybody and everybody that the issue is out there and they should get involved in fighting it any way they possibly can.
