ABOUT Denise Alicea

Denise Alicea
Born in Manhattan, New York and raised in Connecticut, I found that I was more interested in what went on in the past, than in the future. This makes me a huge history buff. I’ve always enjoyed reading books starting from ancient history, fantasy, science fiction, poetry, and of course r More...



Mira did not know what she had in store the day she fell asleep while wanting to escape her current situation. Overcoming a death from someone so close and burying herself in school and an internship has kept her somewhat awake and alive. An admiration for the actor, James Dean was all that kept the memory of her father alive. If she couldn’t be with her father, she could at least remember what they shared an admiration for together. She always wanted to meet James Dean… she didn’t know it would come true. Be careful what you wish for. It may just come true.

This short story was inspired by James Dean, but also a creative writing class that I took. I always wanted to write a short story and this class gave it to me. It just took me away and I've loved what I'd come out with. It's my way of sharing my love of James Dean.

"An opportunity to read this cute and fresh short story in which we can "meet" James Dean in guest star. I'm pleased by the original plot which is cute thanks to Mira - the main character - and which is entertaining. The author puts some things of herself in it and it only creates more feelings that come through every descriptions and every words." - Freak-YA Tastic Book Reviews. 

"A refreshing blast of fresh air to see one young woman fall in love with one young man and make an homage to the past in doing so." - Camryn Rhys.



"An escape into the past to meet a historical celebrity that not only had some influence in Mira's own life, but that many of us remember as a cultural icon." - Eliza Knight.
