*Emmy Z. Madrigal began the Sweet Dreams Series in high school. Her love of music and the jazz masters of the Big Band Era have always inspired her life and her writing.

Her lead character, Victoria, is a high school student who strives to be a jazz vocalist. Mixing the hopes and fears of high school seniors with dreams of the future, Emmy has been praised for her realistic portrayal of modern female characters and their will to survive in a world of adversity, prejudice, and economic hardship.

Sweet Dreams is a love story, full of adventure, danger, and first experiences. It shows that love can conquer all and that sometimes, love comes when you least expect it.

  1. what are the names of your other books the horror ones>

  2. Hiya Dianna!
    My horror novel is called Night’s Knights. You can find out more about it at:
    I also have a horror podcast called it is more of a news show, but we do have short stories at the end of each show.
    Thanks for listening! 🙂

  3. Hi Emmy,

    I have been listening to the Sweet Dreams series and was curious about the author. You may remember me from I have a reader’s review blog. I came to this site to read up a bit on this series and realized that you are also Emerian Rich. I have your Knight’s Night listed as one of my TOP 10 Picks. I thought the voice in sweet dreams and the effects sounded alot like Night’s Knights. lol Great series and I can’t wait to listen to more. Keep up the great work!


    • Brandie! I am totally thrilled to be on your TOP 10 picks! You don’t know how much it means to be on someone’s good list. 🙂 I am also excited to hear that you like the Sweet Dreams Series. My book is going through the proof process now, so I hope for it to be out soon. Book stuff always takes longer than you think it will. Feel free to post your review blog address up here so listeners can find out about other Podiobooks they may like. 🙂

    • Sweet Dreams is out in print!

  4. when will you be putting the fourth book out of sweet dreams “One more try” I just love listen to your podcast. Sweet dreams is the best so I have a hard time waiting but I must wait

    • There is now a fourth book inbetween True Love and One More Try called Undecided. It is really just about 1/2 of a book. My goal is to finish it up in 2011 and get it podcasted as soon as possible. Perhaps by Dec 2011? I will do it sooner if I can. Thanks for listening! 🙂

  5. Hi there!
    I was browsing and came across your series! I’m so excited to start them! The short description already had me hooked, and it sounds like I have a lot of catching up to do! 🙂
    X’s and O’s

  6. Ok Sweet Dreamers… what’s up? I know that you guys are playing the Sweet Dreams Game because I see you doing the tasks, but no one has sent me a picture! I guess no one wants this awesome one-of-a-kind prize! Send me pics or an email about how many points you have on the game to be entered into the drawing for the book!

  7. Hey Emz, got your novels on podiobooks a couple of days ago and as a 63 year old male, I really enjoyed them. I would have liked them better if the charactors were a tad bit older, making it a little more realistic, but hey, I’m a lot older that what your audience is and so I could be way out of touch. I kept waiting for Rob to ask for Victoria’s hand in marriage, but that would be way too early. Remembering my years in that age, much of those feelings were real, but in hind sight, I was way too immature and didn’t really know what love was. Being that as it may, I’m hooked on your series and can’t wait for the next novel. There is just something about the realism of the voices that you use. Keep up the good work.

    • CB, WOW! Thanks for the kudos! They are pretty young, but like I’ve said in interviews, I wrote this storyline when I was their age… and so, it was what I was dreaming of. I know I get a lot of flack for having teens (even older teens) messing around, but it’s more a fact of life now than when I was in High School. I don’t think you’re any more out of touch than I am. Just watching an episode of Gossip Girl makes me wonder if my books are too tame! 🙂
      Yes, Rob will probably ask for Vicki’s hand, but it is rather new still. Even though the books have a lot going on, by the end of the first book we’ve only seen 2 months in their lives. Hard to imagine! I’m excited to release Undecided this year. I’m thinking it will be more towards the end of the year. I have the first draft finished, but I have another book coming out before it called Artistic License. It is slightly horror. It will be released under my horror name “Emerian Rich” and has a very traditional (some might say old-fashioned) love story in it. I hope you will enjoy it too. Thanks for the note! It brightened my day. 🙂

  8. Can you find these books in hardback or as a ebook. That is the only way I can read them.

  9. Hey,
    I have finished reading Sweet dreams, and I would love to read the next one, but I am not a huge fan of listening to the books. When are the next books in the series going to come out as an ebook ?
    I loved Sweet dreams and have been searching everywhere for an ebook of Starstruck, but have had no luck ):
    I would love to read your next book (:

    • Jemma, So glad you like the book! 🙂 I am going to be working on Star Struck and True Love shortly after the release of my next (unrelated) Horror/Romance book, Artistic License. Right now I am knee-deep in edits for that book – coming out the end of this year. I hope that you Sweet Dreamers will enjoy that one too, even though it has a bit of the horror element to it. It mixes my two favorite genres together and I think the romance is strong enough for you guys to dig it! After AL is finished, I will be working on the edits for both Starstruck and True Love. I hope to release them one shortly after the other. I’ve also got Undecided (the 4th audio book) on my schedule for the end of this year. So I think there will be a lot for you guys to smile about soon. I’ll keep you posted!

    • Jemma, you can now get #2 in the Series… Star Struck in print at Amazon here:
      #3 True Love?, Will be out before the end of the year. Subscribe to this blog and keep posted for news. 🙂

  10. Update on this… My other romance novel, Artistic License is out here:
    I have also put out a romance eBook, set in the Sweet Dreams world but not Rob and Vicki – a new pair, called Anime Girl here:
    Star Struck and True Love suffered some set backs in production only because my computer died. Star Struck is now back on track… on the editor’s desk as we speak and I hope to release in early 2014. True Love will be my next inputting project! Keep posted to this blog – subscribe in the upper right hand corner and you will be the first to know when it releases. Thank you!
