Andy Smith from Seaboards has designed a sign to replicate a dive shop in Islamorada from 1935, the year a hurricane destroyed the town along with Flagler's East Coast Railroad. The shop is where Skip and James rent dive equipment in the my novel Too Much Stuff. You can own the sign, plus an autographed copy of Too Much Stuff. Visit Seaboards and get all the details.

#5 in the Caribbean Series
Now Available!

Dear Readers,
Here's the cool cover for Bahama Burnout, Mick Sever's latest adventure. Mick is covering a story for Newsweek Magazine in Nassau, about a famous recording studio that's burned down, and the ghost that haunts the property. This story also involves an old rusty Cadillac that may have belonged to Elvis. If you look closely, you'll see sheet music notation in the fire. That's my song, The Way I Feel, from my CD Last Flight Out. (Go to the music section of the website and you can hear part of the song.)

#4 in the series, ST. BARTS BREAKDOWN, is now available in trade paper! cocktails
