Logansport, Indiana, Author Publishes New Book
Lake Cicott, Indiana March 19, 2014 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) "Awakening: A Catalog of Dreams," a new book by Christa Ashley Gorman, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
As the title suggests, "Awakening" is a collection of dreams. In keeping and refining a dream diary, Christa Gorman has cataloged the potent and emotional images of her dream world.
These dreams, each a short story unto itself, offer insight into the surviving spirit of the dreamer, once the victim of a scaring hostage situation. Many of the enclosed dreams revolve around survival. Persistence in terrifying situations makes this possible.
At 26, Christa is the survivor of a hostage situation. She has successfully turned this experience into a gripping collection. Her dreams and words reflect both her fear and determination. This catalog of deep-sleep serves to inspire the persistence and bravery necessary for life in reality, not just in the vivid world of dreams.
About the Author:
Christa is a native of Heidelberg, Germany and has made her home in various places across the United States. Now a U.S. citizen, she resides in the state of Indiana and works a business owner.
As a survivor of a hostage situation, writing began as a form of self-therapy. Christa entered college, but found writing far more rewarding than the pursuit of a high-paying career in the medical field.
In addition to "Awakening," she has published two earlier poems.
"Awakening: A Catalog of Dreams" is a 96-page paperback with a retail price of $11.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-1875-8. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
