The name of the series, the Dream Ring Series, has meaning when it comes to the stories, but the term dream seems to extend to more than just the books themselves. The first in the series, Ava, debuted when author Hannah Hoffmeister was just 13 years old. She now speaks to elementary and middle schools about the importance of following your dreams and working hard at any age.
