Native Moments: photos and corresponding pages -part 2 

Forgot about these photos from my recent trip to Costa Rica.  Pedro’s was first introduced in Native Moments on page 80 when Sanch and Jake first order the whole fried red snapper meal. This is where the Pescador once stood. A few scenes took place here. Jake playing jump pool and Sanch eating ceviche for the first time (page 211). Unfortunately the Pescador burned down … Continue reading Native Moments: photos and corresponding pages -part 2

Many years of self-doubt and work and starting a business and starting a family made writing increasingly difficult. But on January 24th, I’m heading back to Costa Rica with my wife and daughter. … Continue reading Making your Family Vacations a Work Trip

Suttree’s Knoxville 

Heading to Knoxville in the morning on the drive back to Pensacola after spending Thanksgiving week visiting the in-laws in Cincinnati.  I’ve never been to Knoxville, but feel like I know the city pretty well after reading Cormac McCarthy’s early works, especially Suttree on numerous occasions.

First Amazon Reviews In and Books Are Being Shipped

What a great week it’s been. The preorders of Native Moments started getting shipped almost a month early and the first three Amazon reviews have been posted.  The first picture someone tagged me in on Facebook was a good friend living in Kenosha, WI and he was holding a copy of my book.
