Thanks Deeman! Glad to hear you liked the book. I guess the story overall proves "where ever you go, there you are!"

If I was to re-write the book, I would make it more clear why I tolerated Joyce. She was incredibly knowledgeable and she taught me a lot - she was a part time sailing instructor and today she is a licensed master.

I am working on another book this year - a futuristic adventure novel. Sounds hokey but I'm making it realistic and gritty. I feel there is an untapped market for young adult sic-fi that is technically accurate and authentic. Too many paranormal and magical stories out there - what are the science-minded teens supposed to read?

Since you liked the book, please consider doing a review on Amazon or GoodReads. I appreciate it - those reviews really help with a first book!

Fair winds,

Glenn
