Greetings from Kevin Thompson! If you are thinking of coming to Florida soon, you may wish to wait. We had snow in the panhandle a couple of weeks ago. We’ve had below freezing temperatures as recent as mid-January coupled with winds of over twenty miles an hour, and they are breaking out the swimming suits in the stores. Coats, jackets, mittens? You should have bought those in October when they were plentiful…and it was ninety degrees outside.
Welcome to winter, Florida-style.
Nevertheless, we’re here on the front porch, bundled up in layers of blankets, grasping a cup of hot coffee, watching our breath drift away in the wind.
Who wants to join me? Well, believe it or not, there is a hearty soul from the great northwest who is willing to brave these swampy wilds, huddle up in one of our Adirondack rocking chairs, and share with us some of his writing tales. Welcome to the Florida front porch, H.L. Wegley (we all know him as Harry)!
Welcome, Harry! And congratulations on your latest book, Chasing Freedom. Give us the back cover copy. Fifty words or less. Go!
When Allie Santiago’s father opposes a drug cartel, she’s also targeted. Disgraced Olympic decathlete, Jeff Jacobs, discovers Allie running through Southern Oregon mountains. Helping her starts a war, first with the cartel, then with Oregon’s immigration court, forcing Jeff to choose between regaining his Olympic honor and saving the Santiago’s.
