Daddy’s Day is here soon–How Bout’ a Good Book…
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.
A terrific page turner for dads on Father’s day, written in a style and voice reminiscent of a good hard-boiled mystery that holds you by the throat and doesn’t let go until you finish it.Available at Amazon

-The Boundary Wall at Kana’aho-
By Eldo St. Dave
If dad likes to laugh at ironic situations and doesn’t mind a little war, violence, intrigue, popping eyeballs, and sardonic social commentary, then The Boundary Wall at Kana’aho is the novel for him
War. Peace. Tahitian Gardenias, And A weed-whacker gravely misused.
Chuck Burrows, a 60-something Vietnam War veteran, is homeless, friendless, and losing his battle against PTSD-inspired nightmares on the sun-drenched back streets of tony Lahaina, the celebrated Maui tourist magnet in the Hawaiian Islands. Chuck may or may not have killed his platoon’s oppressive lieutenant in the jungle forty-odd years earlier during a heated battle. And, though the Army apparently no longer particularly cares whether Chuck actually did kill the officer or not, the grizzled veteran would certainly like to shake the war-related visions still haunting his sleep every night.
Brian, a relic hippie from Berkeley of the 1960s, full of vaguely religious aphorisms and guru-speak, shows up one day and befriends Chuck, the hapless ex-soldier. A former Black Muslim and Hare Krishna devotee, Brian is convinced he can lead Chuck to spiritual redemption. However, after one drug, alcohol and prayer-filled night ending rather badly for a Lahaina landmark, Brian mysteriously vanishes. At Amazon Kindle

By Brian Dawtrey
Wild Africa and A Job To Do is a unique tale of journeys to and inside ‘old’ Africa, safaris under canvas to some of the remotest places in all Africa with no facilities or maps. There are many gripping and sometimes amusing stories of encounters with elephants, lions, wild dogs, buffalo, snakes, tsetse flies, as well as with extraordinary people.
He takes an early retirement and goes to live in the country in an idyllic retreat, but he feels unfulfilled and senses that there is much more to life than just being “comfortable.”
He makes a conscious decision to live the examined life, and having bought unquestioningly into consumerist society for so long, he decides to go in a new direction by living with a small band of First Nations people in a remote fly-in community in the Northwest Territories. Cultural differences and a challenging environment ignite fresh perspectives, inspire a new way of life, and fuel his soul-searching
