About the Author
S.J. Lomas, author of young adult novels Dream Girl and Dream Frequency has been entertaining people with her stories since she was four years old. She started writing them in 2nd grade and hasn’t stopped since.
She received a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature from Eastern Michigan University, and attended a summer abroad at Oxford University where she found herself walking in the footsteps of Lewis Carroll and loved every second of it. She did a stint in advertising before getting her Master’s in Library and Information Science from Wayne State University.
The original concept for Dream Girl came to her in a dream during her undergrad years. She knew the idea would make a great story but didn’t know how to structure it until a few years later when she read A Crack in the Line by Michael Lawrence. Unfortunately, that epiphany came a few weeks before her wedding. She likes to tell people that she recalls thinking, “If I didn’t have to go on my honeymoon, I could probably get this whole book written in a couple weeks.” Luckily for her and her husband, she went on the honeymoon. The book took the backseat to life for a few more years while she was busy with her growing family. After encouragement from a former Literature professor, mentor, and friend, Paul McGlynn, and from a wonderful SCBWI first chapter critique from New York Times Bestselling author, Jay Asher, S.J. buckled down to complete the book. It was published in 2013 by Scribe Publishing in Royal Oak, MI.
Dream Girl received great reviews from Voice of Youth Advocates and The San Francisco Book Review.
Disappointment struck while in the middle of writing the sequel, Dream Frequency. Her publisher announced they would no longer publish fiction. After taking a few months off to regroup and strategize, S.J. was encouraged by her fans who kept asking, “What happens next?” To answer that question, S.J. formed 8N Publishing and decided to publish Dream Frequency, the sequel and the conclusion of the Dream Girl duology, on her own. Seven years of membership in the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and twenty-one years of working in libraries have prepared her for this leap into publishing. She hopes readers will enjoy this new book and be inspired to follow their own dreams.
