About Okie Dreams

Okie Dreams.com is the brainchild of Deanna Lynn. First conceptualized in Oklahoma in the early 2000s (hence the Okie part of the title), this site has gone through many changes, even disappearing altogether for a few years before finally making it’s way to its current incantation.

As this site is in the early stages, we are still working on ironing out all the finer details, but for the most part, if you have followed us on our WordPress hosted site (Okie Dreams Book Reviews) you know we’ve been at this book review thing for a few years. What you may not know is that Deanna spent several years prior to that in Oklahoma taking concert photos and writing reviews on some of country music’s biggest and most-beloved music acts. Having spent over a decade seeing some of the biggest artists in country music at the time (a few of which are still wildly popular today), Deanna is quite familiar with the dedication and passion fans have for music and its many talented artists. Which is why this site has expanded from doing solely book reviews to including music as well as movie and television news and reviews.
