INCIDENT AT LINKS OF SHAME: a (very) short story about a golf lesson. The grungy Links of Fame Municipal Golf Course (better known as the "Links of Shame") is about to be bulldozed under. Our golf-hack protagonist is there to play his last round on the course. He never dreamed it might be the last time he ever plays the game.

Alvin Tanninger lives at The Manor, a “budget” senior housing/assisted living facility in Brevard, North Carolina. Alvin lost his wife to cancer six years ago and now keeps to himself, but he has made two friends: Rose, a former Boll Weevil Festival Queen from Enterprise, Alabama; and Mort, a WWII vet prone to senility. Mostly out of boredom Alvin begins to piece together a plan to walk away from The Manor and go hike the Appalachian Trail, or at least a section of it. The planning and plotting almost becomes an obsession to him, and then the day comes to leave. Like the Appalachian Trail itself, Alvin’s quest takes unforeseen twists and turns that place him in life-altering and life-threatening situations. Other characters in Alvin’s tale include Chad, a college drop-out who (although uninvited) joins him on the hike; Webb, a misfit orderly at The Manor; and Alvin’s estranged and trouble-magnet daughter, Melanie.

Excerpt from Seafood Lover’s Florida Introduction:
In Seafood Lover’s Florida we will take a journey to seek out and sample the vast variety of choices in Florida’s most iconic category of foods, in some of its most iconic places. It’s a journey that begins at the state’s far northwest edge and meanders all the way down to its southernmost tip. This book is not just about seafood, but also about seafood “places”. For me, the place: the location, ambiance, and history, is almost as important as the food. Notice I said “almost”, because food always trumps atmosphere. If the food’s no good, all the atmosphere in the world won’t save it.
