About the Author
Dreaming and Writing-What do they have in common? Perhaps it is Deborah S. Nelson, who has united her two greatest talents within her recent book series, Dreams to Reality: Author Your Dreams ACTION PLAN. Her ability to guide dreams to reality inspired Ms. Nelson to invent and author this patent-pending three-part interactive curriculum-the first of its kind! The author's first big dream, at 14, was to become a newspaper editor and writer. And she fulfilled that dream early on, within her first year of junior high school. Her next dream was to fund her college education. Still in love with writing, between studies and work she made time to write for her college newspaper. Dreaming and writing, she graduated in the '70s, debt free, with a BS from the University of Texas. Soon after, she joined The Austin Sun, a weekly entertainment and cultural magazine. In the '80s, Ms. Nelson emerged from an difficult divorce in the role of sole functioning parent. This challenge created just one thing for Nelson, a new dream-to raise her daughter as a happy, healthy, successful person, rather than as another statistic of a broken home. Concern for her child's future propelled her into a new era and a new dream-to start one of the first "home-based businesses." That dream realized gave her freedom to be a full-time, on-purpose, solo mom. Eventually, Nelson was able to fund most of her daughter's education at Brooks Institute of Photography, her daughter's dream college! Devoted to women in business, Nelson was recognized by Working Women Magazine in the '90s for entrepreneurial excellence; and selected as a national finalist for Ms. Corporate America 2008-another childhood dream realized. In the Dreams to Reality Action Plan, a synthesis of 25 years of study, reading, and life experience, Nelson masterfully merges two recurring themes-her love of writing, and her ability to set dreams in motion. What is her next big dream? It is to teach millions of readers how to make their dreams come true!

Part 1 and Part 2 of Dreams to Reality puts you on the path to 1) conceive, 2)believe, 3)receive, and 4)achieve. Then, Part 3 is all about the reader creating "a published dream script in the form of a 10-40 page book authored by you."
Author Debra Nelson says that the "process alone will bring you to the brink of your dream. When you read, recite, and visualize your dreams using your personally published dream story, you will find it an invaluable tool and a powerful and effective attractor of your dreams."
This is a serious "self-help" formula that I believe could actually make a reader's dreams come true, IF they seriously followed the instructions of the author. In my opinion, this book often reads like "The Power of Now" or "A Course in Miracles" -- which one should consider as a "good thing." After all, "The Power of Now" and "A Course in Miracles" did positively transform thousands of lives!
* Wikipedia describes "a mantra" as a sound, syllable, word, or group of words that is considered capable of "creating transformation."
Deborah Nelson, the author of Dreams to Reality - Author Your Dreams is passionate about allowing you to follow your own dreams - not hers. She is genuinely sincere about inspiring you to author your own dream action plan and find your own self. Ms. Nelson writes with conviction when she writes of how you can "breathe life into your dreams by stimulating, stretching, and motivating your imagination beyond it normal limits."
You are told what to dream or what to expect, but to live your own dream, whatever it may be. But, be ready to conquer the fear of failure, as that word is not in Ms. Nelson's vocabulary. She will help you to look at all facets of your life, find your dream, separate the truth from fantasy and inspire you to take action to make your own dream come true. Don't buy the book - invest in yourself by investing in this book that will turn your Dreams to Reality. I did!

I have long wanted to be an author. I have 5 books in the making that I've never completed. Through this course I finally finished and published my very first book! What a rush. What a dream come true. I now have may of the skills, the courage and the inspiration to continue onward and upward!
I took this class in person, however you can do it from your home. Everyone in her class published their own book in 8 weeks. I give a big two thumbs up for this course work. Be sure to get both the text and the workbook as they are a set.
Thank you Deborah, for helping me birth my 'baby,' and for all you do for others.
