If you enjoy reality bending sci-fi like Inception, The Matrix, and Waking Life, you'll love Mirrors!


All Sarah wants is to find her father. All Sam wants is a sense of purpose amidst her seemingly perfect life. What they find is much more than either of them bargained for.

Sarah has been searching for her missing father for the past four years. Sam has a seemingly perfect life, but something is missing. A set of strange circumstances and the onset of confusing visions sets them searching for answers. Individually they discover the answers the other needs: a secret formula, the answers to the disappearance of Sarah’s father, and a shadowy organization that seems to hold the key.

As the visions increase in intensity and frequency, and the women struggle to keep a grip on reality, they embark on a journey to understand what it all means. The connection that exists between them has larger implications than they can imagine, and they are not the only ones who know about it. They must work together, with a newly forged team of friends to evade capture and protect a mind-bending formula from getting into the wrong hands.

Sarah and Sam must become connected, truly connected, and discover their true purpose as the lives they once knew unravel before them.  With everything they cherish on the line, can Sarah and Sam solve the mystery of their connection before time runs out?

Excerpt
Sam could see herself inside a rising fog.
“Who’s there?” She called out, knowing that she was not alone. She heard a murmur, a faint whisper and then a thud, like someone falling to the ground. She rushed into the fog, forgetting her fear. The fog was not clearing, and the thudding continued, growing louder.
Suddenly, the mist parted in a neatly divided white curtain. Behind it stood a young girl. Her face was a blur. Sam frowned. Something is not right. Sam shuddered. The girl’s face was blurred, like the snow of a television set. The girl held out her hand.
“My daddy fell, can you help me pick him up? Mommy says he’s dead, but I think he’s just sleeping.”
“Can you show me where he is?” she heard herself say, in third person.
“I don’t know. I don’t know where he is, but he keeps on falling. I can’t see him! I can’t see him!” The little girl shouted and ran off as the fog began closing in around Sam again.
She caught a glimpse of the girl’s hair and skirt billowing in a strange wind that seemed to come from nowhere, before she disappeared. The thudding grew louder still.

Gasping for air, she sprang up from the nightmare. This time jumping out of her bed and making it to the doorway before realizing where she was. The dreams are getting worse, Sam thought, warm tears running down her face. She had never cried over a dream before, not one like this, where the characters had no relationship to her.  What the hell is wrong with me? Suddenly, Sam felt silly and angry at herself for getting so emotional over a dream that meant nothing, a side effect of a medication.
About the Author


 photo Sonya_photo_zpsf3wb1suq.jpg

Sonya Deulina Williams was born in Moscow, Russia in 1989. She immigrated to the United States, specifically to Greensboro, North Carolina, with her family in 1994 with refugee status, to flee anti-semitism. This journey would become a major influence over her later years.

As an only child, Sonya was prone to day dreaming and loved drawing. Both of her parents are artists/painters. In high school and college, Sonya developed an interest in psychology and specifically how art and psychology could merge to bring insight and healing. So, she majored in Creative Writing and Psychology, and went on to intern/work in a variety of settings facilitating mental health and expressive arts interventions for refugee children and folks with various mental health issues. She later went on to get her Masters in Social Work.

Sonya loves incorporating expressive arts into her therapy work and psychological elements into her writing. She especially enjoys when fiction and reality blur, so that the reader finds themselves asking, "Could this be possible?" Naturally, Sonya gravitated to scifi and began writing her first novel "Mirrors" in 2015.

Currently, Sonya lives in Jamestown, North Carolina with her husband Greg and their three parrots. She enjoys binge watching scifi/psychological thrillers, going to the beach, acrylic painting, blasting her music, and spending time with her loved ones.
