Overview

Jack thought he had the perfect recipe for happiness; a serious career, a tall skinny blonde girlfriend, and a condo full of Ikea furniture. But an icy Minnesota freeway and a Peterbilt truck makes him rethink his life, and he sets out to change his boring existence and to live his life like a Jimmy Buffett song.

Written as a tribute to Jimmy Buffett and the Parrot Head way, the story follows Jack Danielson as he goes off in search of rum, spices, and new experiences. Seasoned with a healthy peppering of Buffetteria, this light and breezy book is perfect for anyone who ever dreamed of just chucking it all to lie on a beach and drink margaritas for a living.

Complete with a short guide to Key West, "I'm Gonna Live My Life Like a Jimmy Buffett Song" is almost as fun as a tropical vacation; well, almost.

Editorial Reviews

Blog - Rum Therapy
From the description of Ronald Strickland, the boss who made me miserable just reading about him, to Anthony’s colorful description of why tropical shirts are so popular in party places, Anthony’s characters and analogies drew me in. Never preachy and with many laugh out loud moments, it is thought provoking and makes you reflect on truly slowing down and savoring the many good things in life.

Meet the Author

Writing fulfills my terminally lazy need to accomplish something in life, and finishing a book is always one of the better feelings I have, right up there with heading out on vacation to someplace warm. The books I pen have been and will always be stories that are meant to entertain and above all be fun to read.
