Short Summary

.Embark on a nonstop tropical adventure that weaves lush scenery, gripping narrative, and unforgettable characters into a story that will keep you tearing through pages toward the thrilling conclusion.

A main character and "The Man of the Sea" disappear, leaving the question; does "The Man of the Sea" exist or is it an old wives tale. I answer most questions but leave one big question in anticipation for book number two.

Development Pitch

Everyone of my readers whether good or bad read this book incredibly fast - they could not put it down. It has paradise for a back drop and the story line is fresh and new - plus there will be three books in total, and I believe I could write many more if it were selected. If you want something original that will stand out and appeal to all audiences, this is your book. I am not a sci-fi guy but I push things to the limit of what could really happen, to me that is the most exciting area. I will take you as far as your mind can stretch without leaving earth or adding things that are completely un-plausible. I have a very strong, good leaking female lead as well as two good male leads. .
