about me

Barely a Dream is my second book, and a sequel to Barely a Trace, which is now available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble in softcover and download, through Krill Press.

Thanks very much to everyone who offered their advice and support. Both have been invaluable.

Barely a Dream

Vickie Clasby

When Detective Tom Kelly's sister Judy goes missing, he realizes his recurring nightmare was a dire warning.

Homicide detective Thomas Kelly finally had everything he’d ever wanted – adoring wife, beautiful children, including a new baby, and his dream job. But recurring dreams portending tragedy cast a pall on his perfect life.

When his beloved sister, Judy, goes missing after a dinner date with her mysterious new boyfriend Carl, Tom realizes the dreams were a dire warning. Carl’s unsavory past catches up with him when a trio of maniacal brothers tracks him down, catching Judy in the crosshairs.

Tormented with guilt for not protecting his sister, Tom is determined to find Judy and those responsible for her disappearance, especially Carl, who brought trouble with him to tranquil Springdale. Tom is torn between his need to exact vengeance and the needs of his family, including Judy’s two children who’ve already lost their father.

Tom’s wife, Mary Beth, no stranger to tragedy, must adjust to her new roles of stay at home mom and cop’s wife, while facing the shocking return of a nemesis from her past.

Tragedy will again test the Kelly family. Will it pull them together or tear them apart?

Hi Jim- Started reading yesterday and was very impressed. I agree with other commenters that this is a gem that deserves more attention. I was captivated by your characters and by the protagonist's spiritual journey. Your handling of his epiphany through his dream sequence was well done, and kept m... view book

Read through Chapter 10. Fast paced and intricate. Max is an interesting character. Ruthless and despicable, but still made me want to keep reading to see what he would discover. His affair with Marian served to humanize him somewhat. Good luck with this - you've made it pretty high in the rank... view book

Just finished chapter 3 and just love Alice and her lovely family. Her struggle with food is very easy to identify with. It does seem that every small victory is excuse for a celebration that more than undoes all the hard work. Hope to read more and see how it works out. Now I'm wanting roasted ... view book

Two chapters in and I have such a soft spot for Emily. This really struck a chord with me, as I've often sat in church wondering why I'm there, what's true and what's not, and what it means to me. The rituals are comforting but the message often misses the mark. I've gotten more from attending Al-... view book

Read the first chapter, and have no real criticism except to lose the exclamation points. There are too many, and they lose their impact. There are other ways to convey the speaker's enthusiasm. Liked the characters and the pace, and felt you provided enough but not too much information on dre... view book
