|Skye Patterson - 24-year old entrepreneur trying to make her way in the world all by herself since she was orphaned at birth - finds herself the victim of a mind controlling substance. Moving to Detroit, was a big step emotionally, but she never thought it would be a big step mentally. The mind controlling drugs invade her life enveloping her in a world she never thought she could experience and a love that was too good to be true with one of her clients, Thaddeus Newman, a powerful construction business owner.
When she begins to experience the too real dreams she tries to convince herself they are not real, but as the dreams become more vivid, she delves deep into a world of pimps, businessmen, doctors, and murder, until she finds out what is really happening to her. With Thaddeus by her side, she is able to face her reality and conquer her fears.
Dreams of Reality touches on the new age drug, Ecstacy (GHB) in the revitalization of Motown, where a woman tries to make it alone and finds that in order to survive she has to make her dreams of love, into dreams of reality.

Author's words and comments:
I use to lie when I was a little girl. I mean I'd tell my mother some whoppers to the point she wouldn't ask me what happened. Finally one day she said, you need to start writing those down on paper. She bought me a notebook and a bunch of pencils on my eleventh birthday and since then I've been writing. If one could see my mother's basement, one could see that I've been writing a long time. Fifty to sixty stories lining journals, notebooks, pads, and papers. One big fire hazard, but they are there and I've already started going through them just sorting out my thoughts and to figure out what the heck was I thinking back then. My goal is to finish all those stories and then publish them. In the end, I want to be remembered for the words I put on paper, the worlds I created for those who couldn't imagine, and for the lives I have touched with the creativity I inspired.
If I could offer any words for encouragement to any writer, it would be bottom line, DON'T STOP. You were gifted with a talent to take someone to another place and time and that is a gift worth working at and taking to new heights every day. Everyday you put your fingers on a keyboard, or put that pen on that paper, you are giving the Lord a big thank you and he will bless you for that. As for finishing stories, I would tell anyone,
DON'T STOP! Just write it until it's done. There's always a point one comes to in a story when you just can't get over this boring hump in the book. Keep writing through it and once you get to the end, go back and fix it, but just don't stop and go to another book. Finish what you start. The most important thing I've learned in life? You guessed it, two words, DON'T STOP. You catch on very quick.
