The Road to Key West

By Michael Reisig / Genre: Action & Adventure / Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars (39 reviews)

The Road to Key West

The Road to Key West is an adventurous/humorous sojourn that cavorts its way through the 1970s Caribbean, from Key West and the Bahamas, to Cuba and Central America.
In August of 1971, Kansas Stamps and Will Bell set out to become nothing more than commercial divers in the Florida Keys, but adventure, or misadventure, seems to dog them at every turn. They encounter a parade of bizarre characters, from part-time pirates and heartless larcenists, to Voodoo bokors, a wacky Jamaican soothsayer, and a handful of drug smugglers. Adding even more flavor to this Caribbean brew is a complicated romance, a lost Spanish treasure, and a pre antediluvian artifact created by a distant congregation who truly understood the term, “pyramid power.”
Pour yourself a margarita, sit back, and slide into the ‘70s for a while as you follow Kansas and Will through this cocktail of madcap adventures – on The Road To Key West.

From the birth, Sola and her husband Chris were thrust into an unimaginable odyssey spanning seven months, several surgeries, and a painful imposed separation with their physically compromised newborn fighting daily to gain critical strength.

Sleepless (Bird of Stone)

My name is Alex Mills and I have a superpower.

Don’t be jealous, it sucks. I can’t control it. My mind is a mutinous SOB that takes over when I go to sleep. I’m just a girl trying to get some shut eye while it decides to throw a rager that can land me just about anywhere in the world.

The base of the Eiffel Tower.
The shore on the coast of Ireland.
The third baseline at Wrigley Field.

Sounds exciting and fun right? Wrong. My not so superpower is unpredictable, uncontrollable and annoying as hell. It’s also how I met Nick.

Every cloud has a silver lining. Nick is mine.

Nick is extraordinary as well. He can’t feel fear. Never has, never will. It’s worked out for him as a PJ in the Air Force, one of the most dangerous jobs in the military, but where it’s not helpful is with his social skills. Nick is cold, distant and apathetic.

He’s also my hero. And if he’s to be believed, I’m his.

I first met him when he died and that wasn’t even the weirdest moment of our relationship. Neither is this moment here and now, trapped together in an island prison on the Behring Sea. It’s a long, strange story between his death and this prison. One full of sheep, docks, Jabberwocks and a very special stone. I could tell it to you if you’d like to hear it. I’ve got time…
