SHOUT OUT: THE HERO OF BLIND PIG ISLAND AND OTHER ISLAND STORIES
An Author’s Place
This collection of island stories carries the reader from daring adventures beneath the Caribbean Sea to tense conflict on a deserted island near the Canadian border. Love stories and private eyes, a boy living on a lonely salt cay and a girl's dream of freedom at sea, hurricanes and heroes -- all told with humor add the insight that comes from first-hand experience.
