Two aging men struggling to come to grips with reality live on opposite ends of the world but possess similar problems. When they meet and realize their stories aren’t so different, they become close friends. In the new novel by author Jack Buckner, “Trouble with Dreams” (published by AuthorHouse UK), these two men embark on a journey of self-discovery and friendship they never thought possible.

Buckner’s story follows the not-so-different yet separate lives of Andy, an ex-professional football player, and Dennis, a retired public relations professional. Andy dreams of living life in the fast lane, while Dennis hopes to live the good life after retirement. Life doesn’t go as planned for either – Dennis loses his life savings in a pension fund scam and Andy gets fired.

Interwoven with humor and a lighthearted message, “Trouble with Dreams” shows readers a bright side to troublesome situations.

“The way news is changing, stories are more and more personal,” Buckner says. “It’s all about personal experience. So balanced perspectives are lost in the quest for a personal story. At the same time, big and powerful organizations shape the way we view the world. ‘Trouble with Dreams’ is meant to explore the tensions between big global forces that shape the world and the places we live in every day.”
