Barbara is an outstanding writer of Paranormal Thrillers and has Titles published like “Behind the Red Door,” and several others which I plan to read. My next read will her latest, “Nightmares and Daydreams,” which promises to be one I will certainly enjoy. I have been friends with Barbara for several years, and we are connected on the Books in Sync and Cold Coffee Magazine sites. Highly Recommended!

The oldest and greatest fear is that of the unknown. And, that’s just what Barbara Watkins delivers in “Nightmares & Daydreams”. As noted by the above reviews, these stories, especially “One Scandalous Night in Las Vegas” and “Spirits of a Jester”, have a Twilight Zone/Alfred Hitchcock tone to them. “Passageway to Hell” manages to be both creepy and bittersweet at the same time. These stories, along with haunting poems, make for a delightful read.

Barbara Watkins’ “Nightmares & Daydreams” has an almost Rod Sterling/Twilight Zone quality; compelling, at times chilling, and masterfully ironic. This series of nine short stories & poems is a well-written gem; I loved each one, especially the last – “One Scandalous Night in Vegas”. Without giving away the plot, what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. Read the book to get the irony of that comment.
