Hi All, An old neighbor of mine once told me that Florida had two seasons: summer and hell. We would be in the “summer” part of the calendar now, but it’s been unseasonably cold. If you can believe it, 60 degrees in the Keys is down jacket weather. It’s been a busy few months for me. I finished my radiation therapy last week and am hoping the side effects subside in the… Read More

Hey Guys, Hope you are all well and looking forward to a great 2019. I really want to thank all of you for the success of Wood’s Tempest. It’s got almost fifty five star reviews and is doing very well in the charts. Shifting Sands, the fourth book in my historical fiction series is out now. If you want to find out the backstory for Wood’s Tempest, I really think you’ll enjoy… Read More

Hey guys, It’s been five years since I released my first book, Wood’s Reef. It was a story I had been carrying around in my head for years and finally got down on paper. Its’s been a great ride since then and today, Wood’s Tempest, the eighth book in the Mac Travis Adventure series is available. I’ve written books based in other areas: Biscayne Bay and Miami (The Kurt Hunter series), Hawaii… Read More

Hey Guys, Mac is back in an all new adventure and it’s available to pre order now on Amazon. I really enjoyed researching and writing this book. It actually took three books to tell this story: Backwater Tide, Wood’s Tempest, and an all new Tides of Fortune book called Shifting Sands (to be released in January). Backwater Tide has Kurt and Justine solving the murder of famed treasure hunter Gill Gross, but… Read More

Hey Guys, I’m almost done with the first draft of the next Mac Travis adventure: Wood’s Tempest. It’s been too long since I hung out with Mac and company and I’m really enjoying it. That release should be coming in November. Mac makes an appearance in Backwater Tide and Kurt reciprocates in Wood’s Tempest. The stories are also linked together with Wood’s Tempest taking off where Backwater Tide ends. The back story… Read More

Hey Guys, Treasure has always fascinated me. I think it does for everyone. There is little to match the frustration and excitement of searching for and finding a long lost Spanish Galleon. South Florida and the Keys have their share and are best know as the final resting place of the Atocha, the 1715 fleet on the Treasure Coast and the 1733 fleet off the Keys. Salvors have worked the Florida waters… Read More

Would you commit murder to sign a top high school recruit? When National Parks Service special agent Kurt Hunter finds a woman washed up on his remote island in Biscayne National Park the case leads him to the world of high rolling boosters and the young players who will do anything to make their mark. With millions on the line in the world of college football, recruiting the top players is crucial…. Read More

Greetings from Adams Key in Biscayne National Park. My name is Kurt Hunter and I am a special agent for the National Park Service. It was through Mac Travis that Steve first met me. I always thought of myself as an ordinary guy, though once in a while I stumble onto some interesting things, but I never thought them story worthy. Steve insisted that there was some good stuff here and I… Read More

We should complete our move to Tampa by the end of the month. I’m very excited about getting back to Florida after being in California for the last 17 years. I was based out of Tampa from 1985-2000 and still have some good friends there. Many thanks to all of you who sent suggestions for boat names. I have decided on Reef Runner for Mac’s center console and my Parker 21. Mac’s… Read More

We love the tropical islands, the water and the unique… Read More
