Debut novel

The Speed of Light is a compelling and provocative debut told in intersecting timelines over a tumultuous, defining year in one woman’s life.

Simone is trying her best not to think of what she’s lost. Diagnosed with MS, she awaits the results of another anxiety-inducing MRI. She’s just walked away from Connor, 'a fixer' but possibly the love of her life. And nearing the holidays, the sights and sounds of winter in South Dakota only prick memories of better years gone by. Then, on a December morning at the university where she works, jarring gunshots pierce the halls. In a temporary safe place and terrified, Simone listens and pretends this will all be over soon. As she waits for silence, her mind racing, Simone’s past year comes into focus. Falling in love and missing it. Finding strength in family and enduring friendships. Planning for the future, fearing it and hoping against hope in dark places. Her life has been changing at the speed of light and each crossroad brought Simone here, to this day, to endure the things she can’t control and to confront those that she can.

'Thrilling as it is heart-felt, The Speed of Light drew me in from the first page. While its newly-diagnosed heroine struggles with life’s unexpected twists, Dickey delivers a story about family, friendship, and the kind of love that truly makes us feel seen.'
Elle Marr, bestselling author of The Missing Sister

'The Speed of Light is a suspenseful tale about overcoming illness and fear, and discovering the untapped powers we have within ourselves.'
Meredith O’Brien, author of Uncomfortably Numb: A Memoir

'The Speed of Light is a gripping page-turner, infused with a compassionate and insightful look at chronic illness.'
Kimmery Martin, bestselling author of The Queen of Hearts
