After raising three boys in the suburbs of Chicago, Carrie Jo Howe now lives in Key West, Florida with her husband and her dog. Her new book, Island Life Sentence is a fictional account of an American Mid-western woman who feels like an alien in the “one human family” of Key West. Carrie Jo’s first book, Motherhood is NOT for Babies, received a rave review (thanks Mom), and works wonderfully as a form of contraception. Her blog Florida Keys Crime Report (www.floridakeyscrimereport.com), tells of all the goings on in the Keys, where bank robbers get away on bicycles, and perps caught with undersized, pinched, out-of-season lobsters get more jail time than drug runners. She is currently working on the sequels to Island Life Sentence. ...more

I spy with my little eye... another DUI!

Thank you Key West Citizen!  The theme of 2018 is fairly obvious from these headlines. I equally safe and scared to death. 


Some highlights from the individual articles (in no particular order): - "he didn't acknowledge the deputies initially as he was busy applying deodorant to his hands and clothing" (the Old Spice trick fools 'em every time) - "he said he was going home from his company's Ch Read more of this blog post »
