Coming from a large family with five brothers, JC grew up in Grapevine, Texas, a small town outside Dallas. In 1999, he moved to Tampa, Florida, where he now resides. As I've been going through some medical procedures, I've been searching for a book to get my mind off health issues and burying myself (figuratively) in a good book. In this well written gripping story, a wife and her husband are having a difficult time with their marriage. He is about to go on a fishing trip and she persuades him to allow her to accompany her.What she had been unaware of is that he had already asked to bring one of his buddies, so there is a threesome. The story moves right along and something about the husband's past catches up with him. The party is crashed by a group of murderous teenagers who claim that Owen, the husband, has something that belongs to them and they demand getting it back. There is no help to be found and things get dicey fast. Not to give away segments of the plot but just try to imagine a deserted Florida waterway where where an innocent group of fisherman are stalked with no one to ask for help. The characters are well described and are sympathetic. They find themselves in a dire predicament where the reader could see themselves with a little imagination. The reader becomes engrossed and will find it difficult to put the book down. Recommended. fishing trips help him breathe authenticity into his stories, which feature the rich landscape of Texas and Florida as backdrops. He has written a monthly column in New Tampa Style magazine and penned several mystery-suspense stories. His first, "The Designated Survivor," was published in 2013.
