About the book:
In the land of ancient Israel, in the days just before the miracles of Jesus the Christ began, there lived an orphan girl named Zimrah. A foreigner and a slave with no knowledge of who she is or where she came from, Zimrah has many demons to overcome.
Living among people that fear and reject her because of her foreign features and strange grey eyes, she finds shelter in the last Jewish house in a City of Refuge only to find that her master suffers demons of his own. She soon discovers that these dark spirits who have tormented her all her life, can not only be battled, but can be defeated when she begins to heed the gentle Voice that speaks to her in her dreams.
Following the Voice, Zimrah finds a lyre and the songs that have been hidden for her in her dreams. Singing these dream songs lead her to the One true God, determine the path to her heart’s desires, and define the map to her future and her destiny.
Assisted by Rebecca and Garbar, the Warrior Angels that guard and protect her, and the love of a Roman officer who she must learn to trust, Zimrah discovers that her life has much more significance than she could have ever imagined. Her obedience and courage will shake the heavens and stir the hearts of all who touch Zimrah, Dream Singer.

About the author:
For the past twelve years, Susan Valles has been using her gifts to lead others into the presence of God through worship. Touched by this presence in a profound way at the age of ten, Susan developed a deep hunger to help others experience the love of God and the majesty of His presence. Writing, singing, playing the guitar and songwriting became extensions of this hunger, an outlet for the passion Holy Spirit was stirring inside her to bring the lost and hurting into the healing embrace of the loving Father.
“For God speaks again and again, though people do not recognize it. He speaks in dreams, in visions of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they lie on their beds.”~ Job 33:14-15
This has been Susan’s experience. Abba Father speaks to her in dreams and visions, giving her inspiration for creativity. Many of her songs have been written in this way, and this is how the idea for her latest project, Zimrah, Dream Singer began. This novel, a culmination Susan’s personal experience in her relationship with God, as well as a few of the songs (He continues to give), was the next step in a faith walk that began with her first album Small Beginnings, and continued with On My Way. The Lord put her on a path of obedience and simply learning to trust and follow has brought her great joy.
Susan’s prayer for this continuing journey, as she writes the second (Zimrah, Dream Walker) and third book of the Zimrah series in that many more will understand the true intimacy that comes with the knowledge of the Living God. Her desire is that through these books and songs many will know God and His benefits, that freedom from fear, and other strongholds is the result of living as citizens in the Kingdom of God.
For, as our beautiful Savior Jesus says, “I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].” ~John 10:10 AMP
