Ocarina II is on a distinguished road
If you like Florida references in your fiction try John D. McDonald. His character, Travis McGee lives on a houseboat in Ft. Lauderdale's Bahia Mar Yachtclub. I sailed into Bahia Mar from Tortola a few years back and sure enough, two slips over from our assigned spot was a brass plaque commenorating John D. and his Hero, Travis McGee. If you like his stuff you'll not run out of material for quite some time, he's written over 100 books.
