SWEET DREAMS
by Cecelia Dowdy

Cecelia Dowdy has been an avid reader since she
Cecelia Dowdy
learned to string letters together to form words. While pursuing a business degree in college, one of her professors tried to convince her to get an English degree since he felt she was a great writer. Years later, after receiving her BS in Finance, she took her former teacher's advice, and started pursuing her literary career. 


She loves to read, write, and bake delicious desserts during her spare time. Traveling is another favorite hobby, and she's been to various countries around the world. Currently she resides with her spouse and young son in Maryland.


Welcome, Cecelia. What fun or unique things can you tell us about yourself?
I love to bake, read, and watch movies!

Where is your favorite vacation spot?
Too many to name; I love nice, clean beaches with clear blue/green water. Places like Tahiti, Hawaii, and Grand Cayman are fabulous!

What do you enjoy doing for relaxation?
I like to watch movies and I also like watching old TV shows like Twilight Zone and I Love Lucy.

Please tell us a little about your novel, Sweet Dreams.
Misty Stewart found Christ shortly after the birth of her baby, causing her to make drastic changes in her life. Short-tempered and street-smart, she realizes being around her un-saved, dysfunctional family is
draining her, so she feels the Lord wants her to distance herself from her relatives. She hopes this distance from her family will allow her to deepen her faith, making it possible for her to raise her two-year-old daughter, Jennifer, in a better environment. Struggling to raise her daughter alone, she bonds with her new neighbor, Sterling Richards. She’s drawn to kind-hearted Sterling, but wonders about the deep sadness that he harbors. Sterling has familial problems that run deep, and romance is the last thing on his mind. 

Sterling Richards, a professional baker, is grieving over the recent death of his father/business partner. Since his father left him as the sole beneficiary of his life insurance policy, his relationship with his identical twin brothers is strained. Why would his father fail to include his twin sons as part of the inheritance? He now struggles to mend the relationship with his brothers, struggling to run his father’s bakery alone. 

Can Sterling and Misty find the courage to love one another?
