Debut novel offers hope to millions seeking the courage to live the dream.

London, England (PRWEB) October 29, 2012

Tom Barry' s debut novel – a potent mix of sex, romance and big, bad business - is a story of a neglected woman's struggle to live the life she wants, not the one her workaholic husband and fickle friends expect. Tom Barry wrote from the heart, he was that workaholic husband, and he was the one seeking the courage to live the dream.

As a top management consultant Barry's career took him into the boardrooms of the world's leading companies, and he counted Microsoft, Disney, Sony, and Toyota amongst his clients. “Not many careers give you the opportunity to meet industry icons like Bill Gates and to rub shoulders with celebrities like Tiger Woods and Robert Redford, and that is a heady cocktail that feeds your ego. But the reality is you are a slave to your clients, your life is not your own, you go where they want, when they tell you.”

At the peak of his career, Barry gave up the fast lane to pursue his passion for writing. “A change of direction in mid-life is a momentous decision for most, and one that is forced on others by circumstance. With our identity and self-worth often tied to our job, I had my fears and my doubts. But striking out on my own is the best career decision I've ever made. I drew on my consulting career for the business scenes, for the sex and romance I drew on my imagination.”

About the author: Tom Barry is now living his dream. Married with three children, he lives in San Diego and London. When he is not writing he travels, researching locations for his next novel.
