Debbie Does Dreams 

Lorain County author's vision inspires book series.

Debbie Alferio believes in more than power naps. The Elyria-born storyteller first met the main character of her 2007 romance novel, A Forever Kind of Love, after drifting off into a deep sleep. "I was having a conversation with a man I didn't know. For some reason, I addressed him as Mitch, even though I know no one by that name," says Alferio, who'll sign copies of the book today in Rocky River. "Upon waking, I went to my computer, and the words began to flow."Since then, more than 1,000 bookworms have snapped up copies of the tale about a misunderstanding that threatens Mitch's engagement to his girlfriend. "Nothing can describe the feeling it gives me when someone tells me that they could personally relate to one of the scenes in the story," says Alferio. "It's then that I have the satisfaction of knowing that I have done my job well." The book-signing is from 2 to 5 this afternoon at Studio of 5 Rings, 20160 Center Ridge Road in Rocky River. Admission is free. Call 216-333-9600 or visit www.studioof5rings.com.
Sat., Feb. 16, 5 p.m., 2008
