About this author

Boo Walker spent his College of Charleston years and a few after in Nashville as a banjoist and songwriter for the avant-garde punchgrass band, The Biscuit Boys.

Boo Walker and 4 other people liked JoAnne Pulcino's review of The Quest:
The Quest by Nelson DeMille
" THE QUEST

Nelson DeMille

I know every blockbuster spawns multiple copycats but more to the point why do I feel I have to read them? I do know why and it’s because when an author I admire writes a book I'm eager to continue my relationship with him.... " Read more of this review »

“I told him I was sick unto death of miniwomen, miniclothes, miniloves, minideaths and my own damned minilife. I wanted empty cays, gaudy reefs, hot sun, swift fish, and maybe some talk when it was time for talking.”
John D. McDonald

“Mark Twain said, “The two most important days in your life is the day you were born and the day you find out why”
I don't remember the day I was born but I remember the day I found out why.
His name was Deuce.
He was my “why”.
And this is our story.
It is not a pretty one. 
Some parts of it are downright ugly.
But it’s ours.
And because I believe everything happens for a reason, I wouldn’t change a thing”
Madeline Sheehan, Undeniable
