A sexy relative who wants to teach Wes Darling the meaning of kissin’ cousins, a priceless centuries old manuscript, a three hundred pound redneck, and an ex-spy who thinks murder is a justifiable means of support are just a few of the things awaiting Wes when he sails into the Dog River in search of answers about the father he never knew.
Dog River Blues blends the mystique of the liveaboard boating lifestyle and the colorful characters and vagabonds who live, work, and sometimes commit murder on our nation’s waterways. This is one voyage to Mobile, Alabama you don’t want to miss.
In September of 2003 my wife, Mary, and I moved aboard our 36-foot sailboat, Rough Draft. We sailed the boat from Minnesota to Mobile, Alabama where we lived for two years docked at a small marina. We also spent three months at the mooring field in Key West and six years in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. This year we spent a month in the Bahamas and we are currently living in the Cape Canaveral area. In December we are heading back to the Bahamas where we plan to drift until we feel the urge to move on.
When we moved aboard it was my intention to write a novel. I have now completed and published 4 mystery novels. The Storm Killer, Key Lime Blues (A Wes Darling Mystery), Dog River Blues (A Wes Darling Mystery), and Weep No More are now available as e-books and paperbacks at Amazon.
