Evan Shea was born into a family of athletes and high achievers that loved competition and never missed an opportunity to gloat over any achievement, however small if it provided a glimmer of advantage over his siblings, cousins and especially, his father. Evan enjoyed a rewarding, but not exceptional career in high school and college sports, constantly being overshadowed by his cousin, Neil. But, Evan became a member of a world class sporting organization known as Cypress Gardens and exceeded any accolades previously enjoyed by his competitive relatives. After several years on the world water skiing stage, Evan returned to his college to finish his degree and met the love of his life, Jeanette. They married, had three children and Evan became a stellar businessman. One day he stopped at his doctor’s office to pick up his routine physical exam results and discovered he had 2 months to live. The shock and how his family deals with the news and prepares for the inevitable loss of Evan is only a part of the story. The other part is the help Evan is receiving from the spirits of his relatives that had already died as they came back to help him transition from the mortal side of his life to the other side. Dying Dreams chronicles Evan’s life as if blossoms, blooms and ends following an illness that cannot be cured. The story is one of happiness, grief, survival and devotion as Evan’s family comes forward to pick up and carry on his legacy and his memory. Will Evan discover the secret known only to certain spirits in the after life? Will he be able to return to the mortal world to help the family he loves when they face a crisis? How will his family survive and prosper without the head of the Shea family? Dying Dreams is a work of fiction based on actual events in the life, and death of a real person.
