Overview

Gage didn’t have friends. He’d led an emotionally isolated life, avoiding personal attachments, a mantra for survival. And the last thing he needed was disruption and exposure of the quiet retirement he’d settled into on Bequia, living aboard his schooner Wherever. He’d buried his past. Forged a new life. And in doing so broke his cardinal rule, he’d formed attachments. A burgeoning romantic relationship with the island’s police Superintendent Jolene Johanssen, whose love awakens dormant emotions and reconnects him to the world. A relationship he’s unsure he’s emotionally equipped to handle. And a close friendship with the discerning Commissioner of Police Mike Daniels, who perceives more regarding Gage’s past than Gage is comfortable with. And who lies in a coma, fighting for his life. In pursuing his friend’s shooter Gage becomes embroiled in the vicious world of narco traffickers, money laundering, and a possible nemesis from his past, threatening to upend his new life, resurrect his inner demons, and put the people he’s come to care about in the cross-hairs.

About the Author

A baby boomer, I was born in the Bronx, New York, inheriting a love of reading and travel from my adventurous mother. Her fascinating story a book in itself, one I have yet to convince her to write. I’m not sure where the writing bug came from, but I remember first putting pen to paper around the age of thirteen.
My restless urge to travel carried me around the United States and to distant corners of the world after college. Eventually I landed in Key West Florida in search of a crew position on any cruising yacht heading for far horizons. In the interim I completed flight lessons and acquired my private pilot’s license.
I did find a yacht, a home built fifty five foot gaff rigged schooner, headed for the Caribbean, and I embarked on my first ocean crossing under sail. A life changing epiphany. I spent the next eight years living and sailing around the eastern Caribbean.
Long stretches at sea allowed countless hours absorbed in the pages of favorite authors like Chandler, Spillane, John and Ross MacDonald, Robert B. Parker, Le Carre, Forsyth, Follett, Dick Francis, Asimov, Clarke, Herbert, Wells, Verne, Bradbury, Heinlein; others too numerous to mention. And time to write. Short stories, a bit of science fiction, sailing and flying journals.
Following diverse careers as a charter and delivery captain, yacht broker, air traffic controller, marina manager, and raising two kids, I now write full time, imbuing my love of the sea and sky in my characters.
