I have two separate series that I am trying to create. One follows John Otter on endless adventures at sea and will be based on most of my actual experiences as a professional captain. The other series is a Key West based detective named Taylor Niche.

​Book 1-Taylor Niche series

A burnt out Miami detective is cooling his heels in retirement in Key West. He is asked to help the Key West PD with an investigation into a murder they can't solve. This thrusts him into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a killer, the Russian mob and an island hell bent on his demise.
