From the Author
When I was a kid I loved reading adventure tales like Tarzan, Treasure Island, The Three Musketeers, Typee, and similar works.
As an adult, I enjoy modern adventure writers with a foothold in history such as George MacDonald Fraser, Cecilia Holland, Patrick O'Brian, Larry McMurtry and Bernard Cornwell, to name a few.
I also avidly read mysteries, detective stories and fun books with quirky plots and have greatly enjoyed the fiction of Robert B. Parker, Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen.
As for serious literary fiction, I can't even begin to mention the authors that I've read and who have influenced my writing. There are simply too many!
Of course, these lists are not exhaustive and I can't possibly pretend to be in such august ranks. I only mention these books and authors so you can get a taste of where I come from and where I am going with my writing.
Creating DRAKE'S COFFIN was the most fulfilling endeavor of my life. I intend to write many more books featuring Zach Colt and his friends. In short, I am hooked, and I hope that you are as well.
Please join me on this wonderful adventure!
