Who is your favorite author? Steve Berry

What book genre of books do you adore? Action/Adventure Thrillers

What book should everybody read at least once? The Go-Giver

Is there any books you really don’t enjoy? This should say, “Are there any books”. Just an FYI. :) Answer: Romance novels. They are the country music of the literary world.

What do you hope your obituary will day about you? Should be “say” about you. Answer: I want it to read, “A friend to all.”

Location and life experiences can really influence writing, tell us where you grew up and where you now live? I grew up in Chattanooga, Tennessee and have lived here my whole life. I travel around a bit, and love so many places in the world. But home is Chattanooga. It always will be. There is something magical about this place. Some have said it is the Portland of the south. I think it’s getting there. Amazing scenery, great restaurants, bars, people, camping, climbing, biking, kayaking, boating, technology, and the world’s fastest internet outside of South Korea.


When you wake up, does it seem like your dreams were real? Maybe they were.

Imagine if Stephanie Meyer and Suzanne Collins sat down together to write an up-tempo, action packed sci-fi thriller featuring terrifying nightmares, an evil emperor, a beautiful princess, and gladtiator games on another planet.

That’s The Dream Rider, the newest release from Ernest Dempsey, the author who brought you The Secret of the Stones and The Cleric’s Vault.

Falling from buildings, being attacked by terrifying strangers, and ghostly hands that strangle in the night are just some of the fears The Dream Rider must overcome.

Finn McClaren is an average college student, mediocre in every possible way, until one day, when strange men try to kill him. Finn wakes up in his dorm room to realize the whole thing was just a dream. Or was it?

The nightmares continue, forcing Finn to face his deepest fears until one night, he stops running and fights back. When he awakens, he is no longer in his dorm room, but on a strange planet on the other side of the galaxy.

After being arrested, Finn is thrust into an underground prison where the inmates are forced to fight to the death in the arena games. While there, he learns he has incredible powers, and of the true reason he has come to the alien world.

The Dream Rider is a fun, fast-paced, science fiction adventure that also asks serious questions about our fears, self-esteem, beliefs, and facing challenges in life.
