Author Bio:
Writing is an adventure for me. It's been a long and winding journey to authoring a book. Here's some of that journey's highlights:

I grew up in Wenatchee, Washington. Better look it up on the map, because it's the Apple Capital of the World!

As a kid I played lots of sports, enjoyed art and photography, read lots of books (still do) and dreamed of traveling the world.

I left home to study at the University of Washington where I earned my B.A. in German. (And yes, my dad asked me "what are you going to do with a degree in German?")

For the next 15 years, I worked in Finance and Quality departments for some really big companies. In other words, I went to lots of meetings, talked on the phone, traveled all over the country and sat in a cubicle for a lot of that time.

Then I fell in love, got married and had two wonderful kids. We now live happily ever after in Portland, Oregon.

That's the story so far. I'm now starting the journey of author. How long that will last, I don't know. However, I'm ready to enjoy the adventure.

Lisa Ard's 'Fright Flight, Dream Seekers Book One' won the FlamingNet Top Choice Award. Her upcoming book 'Saving Halloween' won a 2012 Kay Snow Writing Award for Young Readers.

I offered copies of her book to a 7-year old girl and an 8-year old boy to read and get their impressions.

Fright Flight will appeal to boys and girls with its engaging premise: what if our dreams were real? Great if the dream is sweet, but risky if it is a living nightmare.

The story is wholesome, but funny and mysterious. Sure to hook beginning readers eager to fly through the chapters.

The cover and illustrations are delightful. Kids will devour Dream Seekers, pass them on to their friends, and eagerly await what I hope will be a series of adventure books.

Format: Paperback
this is a pleasant and enjoyable little fantasy for kids, involving adventures in dreamland. apparently the first in a series, this episode takes our boy hero on an adventure in Rocket Space as he fights off enemies trying to get in the way of a Very Important Political Meeting. strangely enough, Mom turns up as a Commander - but our hero does not seem to mind Mom being a part of his adventures. an unusual lad!

two things:

- the main flaw is that Patrick, the 12-year old hero, does not really talk like a 12-year old. at times he sounds distinctly younger than his age and many other times he talks like he is several years older, using phrases i've never heard from a kid that age. this flaw is not a deal-breaker and will hopefully be corrected in future volumes.

- the main attraction is the basic premise of Lucid Dreaming. that is a marvelously rich and fertile place to start a series. there are so many possibilities when looking at dreams on their own, so many adventures that can happen. and when lucid dreaming is integral to these adventures, they become so much more interesting, the possibilities multiply. i thought the best parts of Fright Flight involved Patrick taking control of his adventures. will future adventures have Patrick changing his dreams, moving into other dreams, integrating even more features from his reality? only time will tell. anyway, great concept!

Format: Paperback
Imagine flying a spaceship or ordering a never-ending bowl of ice cream. Most kids would love dreams like that. But for twelve-year-old Patrick, he has to be very careful what he dreams about, because his dreams become a form of reality. When one evening before dinner, he dreams that he is flying a diplomat on an urgent, interplanetary mission, he knows he cannot afford to fail.

The first book in a series about a family of dream seekers, Fright Flight is a solid, well-written, well-edited, imaginative and highly engaging adventure story that would appeal to 7-10 year olds (especially boys). Imagine Buzz Light Year (from Toy Story) crossed with the Magic Tree House! If your children like Secrets of Droon or the Magic Tree House series, they will really enjoy this one. Even children who have outgrown the other series might find this one still within their interest.

This is a great book for young readers. It allows their imaginations to take them into the world of Dream Seekers. Great for boys and girls and likely to get them hooked on the world of reading.

It's a perfect book for kids starting to read chapter books. I really like the 'dreams are real' adventure concept, and think kids will enjoy it as well.

Format: Kindle Edition
"Fright Flight, Dream Seekers Book One" by Lisa Ard is a wonderful way for young readers to place themselves, through the protagonist, into the cockpit of a star fighter. Patrick, 12 years old, is the protagonist. We get to know Patrick through the narrative of his adventures. The story appeals to kids 7 to 10 as an early middle-grade chapter book.
Voices from wrist communicators, a cafeteria where you speak your order and the food just appears: These are among Patrick's thrills, and thus, ours. The biggest thrill is Patrick piloting the star fighter through harrowing battles.
How is a 12-year-old a pilot? Patrick is dreaming. But, wait. These are not ordinary dreams. Patrick is a dream seeker, like his Mother and siblings. His father, a scientist, is working toward identifying the dream seeker gene.
For a dream seeker, a dream is reality. What occurs in the dream spills over into the waking world. If Patrick eats an ice cream sundae of chocolate chip mint, blueberry cheesecake and cookie dough, he wakes with a terrible tummy ache.
Patrick has not learned how to control his dream life, although he is trying. He keeps his mother's four rules for dreaming in his head, but he doesn't always follow them.
The fight scenes should excite video players as Patrick is directly within the action. Patrick must contend with three Sinistars threatening his star fighter's destruction.
The humor and Patrick's first dealings with a girl add to the fast-paced story.
The demands in Patrick's dream life are difficult for him. This produces a book that at first seems an adventure story. But the story is more than that. It is a good construct for children who face the new challenges of growing up. Also, Patrick is not alone as he faces challenges.

Read this with my son (2nd grade)and he loved it - in fact, I bought a copy for his class to read and it got rave reviews from them as well. The concept of entering and controlling dreams is a great premise which will allow the author to explore many worlds and situations. Can't wait to see more.
