L.J. Higgins’ dystopian trilogy takes place in a future world devoid of dreams…mostly. The MultiMind Corporation had released a Wristcuff to be worn over a microchip implanted beneath its host’s skin. Dreams were no longer created by the subconscious. However, there were those for whom this technology failed to work on: the Dreamers.
In book one, we met Amelia. She was a Dreamer, and the veil of ignorance was lifted when she met someone who helped her see through the lies and secrets. With her world shaken and changed, Amelia had to decide whether to fight for truth and the freedom to dream or remain bound by a controlled and manipulative society.
In the new release, Fall of the Dreamer, we meet Harper. She’s an old school hippy stuck in 2024 and runs a little head shop complete with boho lanterns and dreamcatchers.
“There was Harper with her baggy boho pants and white singlet, her dreadlocks tied in a mass behind her. The walls were adorned with various mandala sheets, and there was a multi-coloured wall hanging of a man with dreadlocks. Harper said his name was Bob Marley. When I’d told her I was unsure who that was, she’d laughed and told me to ask my grandmother. A small table with a purple cloth laid over it sat in the center of a handmade rug woven of all shades of colours, and the smell of patchouli hung in the air.”
I can’t wait to meet her! Fall of the Dreamer is out this month and Higgins is throwing a Facebook launch party to celebrate, along with four other YA authors. Come join us at the 5 Author Extravaganza! There will be Dystopia, Romance, Sci-Fi and more. Chat with the writers, play some games, and win some prizes.
L J Higgins hails from Queensland, Australia, and her love of books motivated her to return to her dream of writing a novel. The result is inspiring, showing dreams can be achieved if you have self-belief. She hopes to instill in her children the wonderful world of imagination and dreams.
“I think that for me, both art and writing (which is an art in itself), allow me to use my vivid imagination and allow people to see things, and the world around me, the way I see them. I guess it is giving someone a glimpse of the world through my eyes. I’m often told I am quite quirky and come out with strange ideas, but when they read my books or see my paintings I think they understand that those ideas and beliefs are what makes me who I am,” says Higgins.
