JJ DiBenedetto, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your heroine, but first, tell us about the book.
Dream Doctor by JJ DiBenedetto
Genre Cozy Mystery with a supernatural twist
Book heat level (based on movie ratings):PG
Between adjusting to life as a newlywed and trying to survive the first month of medical school, Sara Alderson has a lot on her plate. She definitely doesn’t need to start visiting other people’s dreams again. Unfortunately for her, it’s happening anyway.
Every night, she sees a different person and a different dream. But every dreamer has one thing in common: they all hate Dr. Morris, the least popular professor in the medical school, and they’re all dreaming about seeing him – or making him – dead.
Once again, Sara finds herself in the role of unwilling witness to a murder before it happens. But this time, there are too many suspects to count, and it doesn’t help matters that she hates Dr. Morris every bit as much as any of his would-be murderers do.
Dream Doctor is the first book of the Dream Doctor Mysteries.
Know the Heroine from Dream Doctor
Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.
It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
If her husband’s asleep, probably read ahead in her medical school textbooks, or email her best friend. If he’s awake…
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Pizza. It’s quick and easy and she can eat it cold the next morning if there’s any left over.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
Since she’s in medical school and she spends three days a week in anatomy class, it’s casual clothes that she doesn’t mind if they smell of formaldehyde.
Does she know how to fix things?
She can change a tire and do pretty basic repairs – her father taught her to be able to do for herself wherever possible. And she’s learning how to fix people, but since she’s just in her first year of med school, it’ll be a while before she can do surgery.
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
When her med school classmate and friend Janet was going through a very rough time, Sara tried to get her to open up and talk about her problems, but it backfired, and Janet completely flipped out.
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
She’d be friendly and approachable. She loves kids, and she wants to be a pediatrician.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
If she didn’t dream, or had a normal dream of her own, she’s pretty chipper when she wakes up. If she had one of her supernatural dreams where she visited someone else and saw something horrible, she’s a complete mess when she gets out of bed.
Can she use chopsticks?
Yes, but she doesn’t.
Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?
Definitely coffee. Black. And never decaf.
What apps would she have on her phone?
The book takes place in 1991, so she wouldn’t understand the question.
Android or iPhone?
See above. But later in the series, as time goes on, she does have an iPhone.
Earrings or unpierced ears?
Tattoos or unadorned skin?
Unadorned. She’s not a big fan of tattoos.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
Personal car, although in this book since she’s living on campus she doesn’t need one. But in the next book, she drives the old Volvo passed down from her father-in-law.
Recycle or toss?
Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!
