And, thats just what Barbara Watkinsdelivers in Nightmares and Daydreams. As noted by the above reviews, these stories,especially One Scandalous Night in Las Vegas and Spirits of a Jester, have a TwilightZone/Alfred Hitchcock tone to them. Passageway to Hell manages to be both creepy andbittersweet at the same time. These stories, along with haunting poems, make for adelightful read. August 29, 2009, R. ZabelBarbara Watkins Nightmares & Daydreams has an almost Rod Sterling/Twilight Zonequality; compelling, at times chilling, and masterfully ironic. This series of nine shortstories & poems is a well-written gem; I loved each one, especially the last---"OneScandalous Night in Vegas.” Without giving away the plotline, what happens in Vegasdoesnt always stay in Vegas. Read the book to get the irony of that comment.
Watkins has delivered a wonderfully thought provoking & at times, chilling series oftales. Its a definite "must read" for anyone interested in expanding their level ofconsciousness; or just looking to get lost in a bit of spiritual fantasy. August 9, 2009,Larry Underwood “Author, ‘Life Under The Corp…Director, Dimi Nakov, has been quoted as saying "I am so happy to work with Barbara.She is an amazing writer and such a great person and so down to earth. I have no words. Iwill work with her in the future, and would like to make many of her books into films. "January, 1 2011. Missouri Author, Barbara Watkins KWWSZZZEDUEDUDZDWNLQVQHW
