Dean Mayes 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 his debut novel The Hambledown Dream). Dean lives in Adelaide, Australia with his partner Emily, his children ...and his cross-breed cattle dog Simon.
The Hambledown Dream, a lyrical and moving paranormal romance, is his first novel and was published by ireadiwrite Publishing (Vancouver, Canada) in 2010. A second edition, with all new cover art and a slightly tweaked story line, was released for the digital market in March 2011. Dean is currently working on his second novel, tentatively titled "Gifts Of The Peramangk".
He writes regularly for a loyal following at his blog Dean from Australia.
