Growing Nightmares & Dreams is a collection of ten, hard-hitting stories written about dark subjects. They do not shy away from exploring subject matter that are as unflinching as they are raw. All of them tackle the harsh-realities of life, and are not for the faint-hearted.
Written in a fresh and exciting way, each story is read from a new and different perspective. While some are written in a traditional format, others do not follow this convention. ‘The House With Morals’ is told from four different perspectives in a household over the same period of time. ‘How’re You Feeling’ has been written in third person narrative and is one day in the life of someone with anxiety issues, but also has first person sections to better explain the thoughts and feelings of the individual. ‘Impressions Are Lies’ has been written in reverse chronological order to allow the reader the opportunity to absorb the story by looking at it with a different approach. ‘Five Minutes to Save a Life’ is written both in first and third-person narrative. The aim is to give the reader the initial first person narrative in the present tense to allow them to experience the first part of the story alongside the main character.
