Welcome back to the 4th month of The New Authors on the Block! This month we are introducing debut author Lucy Keating the author of Dreamology and today for the final post of April we have a Character interview!
Character Interview with Alice, Max, Oliver, & Sophie
Describe your dream kiss!
Alice: I don’t really care as long as Max is there. I mean, actually part of the kiss. Not like standing next to us.
Max: Hot air balloon, probably (smiles to himself).
Sophie: Something dramatic, a real declaration of love, in front of a lot of people!
Oliver: Totally spontaneous, in a crazy location, that can never be replicated again.
Max, what did it feel like the moment you saw Alice in class that day?
Max: I thought I was having some sort of breakdown. The stress of getting into college was finally catching up with me. That first class was so painful, all I wanted to do was stare at her, figure out who she was. To reach out and touch her and see if she was real. By the end I just convinced myself it must be some kind of crazy coincidence. Because if it wasn’t…well what then?
Describe a perfect day!
Alice: Me, Jerry and Max, walking along the Charles River, having a picnic, then spending the rest of the day at the Isabelle Stewart Gardner museum. And Jerry would be allowed in, of course. Even though he is a dog.
Max: I score the winning goal in a soccer game against our biggest rival, ace a final exam, and celebrate by whisking Alice away for a long drive to the southern coast of Massachusetts. With Jerry, of course.
Sophie: Walking the streets of Paris in winter time, coffee in a cozy café, and a kiss on top of the Eiffel tower!
Oliver: A fantastic dinner followed by a wild party in Ibiza! I can’t go back there though, I almost got arrested last time.
What do you think you’ll major in in college?
Alice: I’m gonna major biology so I can study the brain and figure out what happened to us. But I’ll probably minor in creative writing. I’ve been told I have a pretty…active imagination.
Max: Psychology. Levy says I have a knack for it, and I like having rational explanations for things that seem out of our control.
Sophie: Pre-law. I wanna be a badass lady litigator. I have a lot of opinions.
Oliver: How should I know? I’m taking a year off to backpack around South East Asia.
Thanks for taking the time to chat with me guys!
Lucy Keating is a New Englander who fell in love with California, and now splits her time between San Francisco and Venice Beach.

For as long as Alice can remember, she has dreamed of Max. Together they have traveled the world and fallen deliriously, hopelessly in love. Max is the boy of her dreams—and only her dreams. Because he doesn’t exist. But when Alice walks into class on her first day at a new school, there he is. It turns out, though, that Real Max is nothing like Dream Max, and getting to know each other in reality isn’t as perfect as Alice always hoped. When their dreams start to bleed dangerously into their waking hours, the pair realize that they might have to put an end to a lifetime of dreaming about each other. But when you fall in love in your dreams, can reality ever be enough?
