Storm of the Century

Sunny beaches, tropical breezes, wild and colorful plants and animals, and beautiful people in swimsuits. The Florida Keys in all its splendor. A vacation destination for so many people, especially those of us stuck in the miserable cold winters of Michigan or other northern states.

But all the magic of the Florida Keys doesn’t just happen on its own. It takes a lot of hard work from a lot of people that live there. Not just the multi-million dollar beach houses either, but the people that make sure things get done.

Sam Mendez is one of those men. Sam also happens to have been disabled from a IED in Afghanistan and suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. But he’s also a survivor and a fighter. His problem is that he’s run out of enemies to fight and still the nightmares won’t leave him alone. So sometimes he has to find new enemies to fight. And that’s why after his wife and kids left, his only friend is found in the bottom of a bottle.

With all these things going for him the last thing Sam needs is more responsibility. Naturally that means it’s coming his way. This time in the form of a young woman washed up on the shore of the beach. His training kicks in and before he realizes it, Sam’s saved a life and made himself a lifelong friend.

But that’s only the beginning of the story. Sam knows things don’t work out well for him. Whether it’s his fault or not, bad things happen. That’s the secret of life as he knows it.. Tamara, the young woman that’s forced her way into his life, hasn’t figured that out yet.

It’s only a matter of time until the calm before the storm blows over. Sam knows it, but he has no idea what’s in store for him. How dangerous the storm is going to be, nor how many people it will hurt.

That’s a long version of the blurb for Devil’s Island, my newest release. But it’s not just my release this time, it’s also a very talented writer I stumbled across a few months back by the name of J. Knight Bybee. Mr. Bybee and I struck up a conversation over a piece of his writing and in no time we learned we had a lot of things in common. One thing led to another and soon enough we’d agreed to collaborate on a book. A book that, it seems, is going to turn into a series of books. Devil’s Island is the first installment in the Fallen Angels series.

I thoroughly enjoyed the process of working with him on the project and we’re already several chapters into book 2. All in all, it’s been a very exciting and education experience. Now that book one is out, it’s time for the entertainment and excitement to reach the rest of the world. So reach out and grab your copy before the Internet runs out of 1s and 0s on the virtual book shelves!
