WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, September 5, 2023 - Award-winning Florida fiction author Taylor Thomas Smythe’s latest book, The Dream Team: A Magic City Wonders Novel, is officially available now. The novel is the second installment in the young adult science fiction series, following 2022’s award-winning series debut Goldie.
In The Dream Team, protagonist Donna Locke has one goal: to locate her longtime beau Marcus Myles. As the summer of 1981 arrives, nearly a year has passed since Marcus disappeared. In the wake of tragedy and inexplicable events, Donna is determined to find answers. When an encounter with a dashing philanthropist finds her joining a ragtag team of rogues who stage heists to steal people’s dreams, Donna must decide if the rising stakes are worth the cost.
Goldie, the inaugural installment in the Magic City Wonders series, is set in 1980s Miami and follows the story of a young diner waitress named Donna Locke, whose life is turned upside-down when she develops an unusual and mysterious power to turn objects to gold.
This spring, the Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY Awards) announced that Goldie was named winner of the gold medal in the Southeast - Best Regional Fiction category. This recent honor marks the fourth formal awards recognition for Smythe’s written work. In March, Goldie received a silver medal in the Florida Book Awards. In 2021, the first installment in his seven-book Kingdom of Florida middle-grade fantasy series--The Golden Alligator—was chosen as the winner of a silver medal in the Florida Authors & Publishers Association President's Book Awards and as a finalist in the National Indie Excellence Awards.
