I'm a Veteran of the United States Marine Corps and now, a full time novelist. Between those careers, I've also worked as a deckhand, commercial fisherman, divemaster, taxi driver, construction manager, and truck driver. I live in the Sea Islands, near Beaufort, SC, with my wife and youngest daughter. We also have three grown children, five grand children, three dogs and a whole flock of parakeets. I grew up in Melbourne, FL and have also lived in the Florida Keys and Cozumel, MX.

Story Telling

A long time ago, don't ask me how long, I'm not an anthropologist, some hairy ancestor of ours grunted. His buddy or mate heard him and was curious. Soon they were both grunting. In time, certain grunts had certain meanings, known only to others in that clan. A spoken language was developed and mankind evolved.

Shortly after, again don't ask me how long, could have been two weeks or ten thousand... Read more of this blog post »

Wayne Stinnett In 1566 ten ships left Havana Harbor, bound for Seville, Spain, loaded with treasure, sugar, spices, and rum. Nine were destroyed and sunk in deep water by a hurricane. The Master of the tenth ship, sensing the approaching storm steered south and managed to miss it. The first time. The storm stalled, then looped around and ran the carrack Nuestra Senora de Magdelena y las Angustias onto a reef along Elbow Cay in the northern Bahamas. Five men survived, only to die of thirst and hunger. But not before burying most of the treasure.....
Fallen Coconut
Due out in the fall.
