the dreamer

Do you read online comics?

Me? Of course! I love them! And I have my favorite site!

Six years ago, when I was still working at AOL, my colleague/friend Kristeen Joy told me about a website that’s got a character who was having a hard time sleeping because she ends up dreaming about herself in another lifetime, with a man in her arms, during the Revolutionary War.

I was intrigued with the concept so I went to this website: http://www.thedreamercomic.com/

…and discovered one of the best and became one of my favorite online comics from the talented Lora Innes.. 🙂 Six years later, and counting, Lora Innes continues to rock my webcomic world and had received numerous awards. Yay!

Intrigued, are you now? Come on and catch / read the episodes on The Dreamer” and swoon! Here’s a synopsis , in case you’re wondering:

Beatrice “Bea” Whaley seems to have it all; the seventeen-year-old high school senior is beautiful, wealthy and the star performer of the drama club. And with her uncle’s connections to Broadway theater, the future looks bright ahead of her. Little does she know that her future might actually be brighter behind her.

Bea begins having vivid dreams about a brave and handsome soldier named Alan Warren—a member of an elite group known as Knowlton’s Rangers that served during the American Revolutionary War. Prone to keeping her head in the clouds, Bea welcomes her nightly adventures in 1776; filled with danger and romance they give her much to muse about the next day. But it is not long before Beatrice questions whether her dreams are simply dreams or something more. Each night they pick up exactly where the last one ended. And the senses—the smell of musket shots and cannons, the screams of soldiers in agony, and that kiss—are all far more real than any dream she can remember.
