Logan author publishes book

Logansport author Christa Ashley Gorman recently published a collection of stories, “Awakening: A Catalog of Dreams,” through Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

“Awakening” is a collection of dreams. These dreams, each a short story unto itself, offer insight into the surviving spirit of the dreamer, once the victim of a scaring hostage situation. Many of the enclosed dreams revolve around survival.

Christa is a native of Heidelberg, Germany and has made her home in various places across the United States. Now a U.S. citizen, she resides in Logansport and works a business owner. In addition to “Awakening,” she has published two earlier poems.
