Cyndie “CJ” Zahner is a digital-book hoarder, lover of can’t-put-down books, runner, author, and Mensa wannabe. That last trait explains the inspiration for her first novel, The Suicide Gene. Her second book, Dream Wide Awake, was inspired during long runs on Presque Isle State Park in her hometown of Erie, Pennsylvania and has prompted readers to ask: Is Dream Wide Awake fiction? Or one of CJ’s premonitions?
Could not put this one (Dream Wide Awake) down! Think you have it figured out? …you don’t!
Captivating. I wondered many times throughout the book (Dream Wide Awake), “Is this fiction, or reality?”
One of the most rich writing styles in terms of literary techniques that I have seen in any of the manuscripts.
