The Prophecies Series by Linda Hawley


A fellow writer friend of mine, Linda Hawley, is the author of a series called The Prophecies Series.

The Prophecies book series —
It’s the near future, and society is government-controlled.  Technology tracks everyone, and personal privacy does not exist.  The hope for freedom lies in the operations of an underground organization, GOG, which fights against worldwide oppression.  Their most powerful weapon is Ann Torgeson, a paranormally-gifted operative.  It’s her powers that release the seal of The Prophecies, changing the world forever.

 

These books are a “clean read.” Linda expounds, “A “clean read” can mean many things to many people.  My definition is:  a novel that avoids cussing/swearing/foul language, premarital sex, or gratuitous sexual intimacy.  Some might say that without those things, the story is boring.  I would say that if I have done my job well (as a writer), that nothing will be lacking.”

Here is a word from Linda: At five years old, I fell in love with words.  If I were going to clone myself as a writer, I would concoct a cloning recipe which would contain the following ingredients:

• Lots of varied life experience, to give enough flavor
• World travel experience, for color
• Passion, for spice
• A few crazy relationships, to create perspective
• One or two quirks, to add a little crunch
• Deep love, to introduce spirit
• Curiosity, to add a little danger
• A touch of paranoia, to interject alternate realities
• Lots of knowledge about current events, for texture
• Pride and humility, to bring human characteristics
• A touch of insanity, for interest

These characteristics have made their way into the pages that you read. My head is filled with stories, and The Prophecies trilogy is only the first that’s on paper.  Writing it has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life.  Many of the subplots and undertones of the trilogy came from my own life experiences.

I could tell you all about my higher education, my freelance writing experience, and a bunch of other professional qualifications, but do you (the reader) really care about that? My guess is that you care more that I write compelling novels that take you into a new world, if only for a while. Thank you for reading my stories, Linda Hawley

Now here’s a little bit about her books:

Here is what some of her readers have said about her books:

“A real thought provoker.  If you liked the Bourne Identity or Inception you’ll love this!”

“Ann is one of the most complex characters I’ve ever read….  The world is dystopian: the government is the evil Big Brother keeping people safe even against their will.  Yet, the characters aren’t depressed or desperate.  They try to live their normal lives which includes laughter, too.”

“The book really pushed me out of my comfort zone as I’ve never read any other book similar to this….  From the very beginning, the book kept me intrigued by its mystifying plot and excellent narration.  I must laud the author for her ability to write her story in the finest detail, which makes the story sound somewhat believable.  Everything was described superbly….  Overall, this novel is a real and pure page-turner.”

“The book has some references to current political figures and situations that make it very easy to get sucked into the story.  The book is extremely well written and had my attention from the beginning to the end.”

“It’s like a present that you are slowly unwrapping layer by layer.”

“If you put Dana Scully and Fox Mulder into a blender and hit puree, they’d make a mean Ann Torgeson.  Dreams Unleashed was a great start to what I’m sure will be a fantastic book series.  It poked fun at the TSA, and gave a frightful vision into a not-too-distant world where privacy truly is a thing of the past.”

“Linda Hawley blends science and metaphysics well together and creates a thinking story that kept me turning the pages.  Action and suspense combined with philosophical discussion makes this book a winner.”

“Linda Hawley crafts a detailed and compelling story with a richly textured and multidimensional heroine.”

“This is a suspense-filled journey into our potential future that leaves you hanging for more and eagerly awaiting book two.”
