About the author:
James David Audlin is an American author living in Panama, after previously living in France.
A retired pastor, college professor, and newspaper opinion page editor, he is best known as the author of "The Circle of Life".
He has written about a dozen novels, several full-length plays, several books of stories, a book of essays, a book of poetry, and a book about his adventures in Panama.

The Book of Dreams -- that came to James David Audlin
James David Audlin
A novelist whose works are often based on dreams here provides vivid dreams from over a lifetime that not only inspired a number of literary works, but are artistic creations themselves.
"Dreams are essential to me. I do my best to pay attention to them. Not only do I often write them down, but I think about them for years afterwards. It is occasionally made clear to me that they are meant to be turned into stories or poems or plays, or even songs. ...
Dreams can be funny, irritating, frightening, profound, exciting, and everything else - but always sacred. Some of these dreams have been clearly prophetic, some came at significant moments in my life, and all of them are moving. ...
If nothing else, I hope you will find these dreams entertaining. More than that, you might appreciate this window into the craft of a writer. Best of all, perhaps you will sense through them how sacred and powerful the voice of Spirit is and be encouraged to listen for that voice yourself.
For these dreams are not mine, in the possessive sense; they are all of ours; they are Spirit's."
