New Release: THE HAMBLEDOWN DREAM by Dean Mayes

After a bit of a hiatus, we’re ready to launch a slew of great new books.  And here to kick us off is a great new novel by break out author Dean Mayes.  This Australian has a loyal and regular following at his blog deanfromaustralia and we’re so pleased to have him as part of our growing family.

Dean has been writing, blogging and dreaming for most of his adult life, in between practicing as an Pediatric ICU Nurse and raising his two children, Xavier & Lucy (who was born during the writing of The Hambledown Dream). Dean lives in Adelaide, Australia with his partner Emily, his children; and his cross-breed cattle dog Simon.

We’ve had early success with THE HAMBLEDOWN DREAM, and for good reason – it’s a well written, character-driven saga of two men, both searching for salvation in completely different ways.

Australian Denny Banister had it all; a successful career, a passion for the guitar, and Sonya – the love of his life. Tragically, Denny is struck down with inoperable cancer.

Andy DeVries has almost nothing; alienated from his family, moving through a dangerous Chicago underworld dealing in drugs, battling addiction while keeping a wavering hold on the only thing that matters to him: a place at a prestigious conservatory for classical guitar in Chicago.

As Andy recovers from a near fatal overdose, he is plagued by dreams – memories of a love he has never felt, and a life he’s never lived. Driven by the need for redemption and by the love for a woman he’s never met, he begins a quest to find her, knowing her only by the memories of a stranger and the dreams of a place called Hambledown…
