What would you do if you could see other people’s dreams? If you could watch their hidden fantasies and uncover their deepest, darkest secrets…without them ever knowing?
Sara Barnes is about to find out. She thought that all she had to worry about was final exams, Christmas shopping and deciding whether she likes the cute freshman in the next dorm who’s got a crush on her.
But when she starts seeing dreams that aren’t hers, she learns more than she ever wanted to know about her friends, her classmates…and a strange, terrifying man whose dreams could get Sara killed.
“Dream Student” is the thrilling first installment of the Dreams series.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
My books have a balance of mystery, romance, the paranormal (Sara’s supernatural dreams) and the ups and downs of everyday life. I think that’s a really fine line to walk, and I’d like to think that I’ve managed it pretty well.
Also, I think I’ve got a very strong handle on the voice and personality of my main character, and it shows through in the finished book.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Seriously, that’s the best advice I’ve been given, and you can’t argue with it. Sit down and write, whether you feel like it or not, whether you’re happy with what you’re putting on the page that day or not.
Whatever’s on the page, you can always edit it later, but if you never get it down in the first place…
J.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.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I came up with the basic premise – what if you could see other people’s dreams – and it very logically led to the story that ultimately became “Dream Student”. That’s how this particular story got told.
The inspiration for sitting down and actually doing the work was a friend of mine who, last winter, sold her first novel. If she could do it, why not me, too?
