Oh, Jamaica!

Many a book have been  penned about my friend and favorite literary character, Buck Reilly! With the release of Maroon Rising, there are now five.

As much as I fancy myself a teller of stories, a chaser of adventures and a man who uses words as my magic, I admit that I have fallen under the spell of John H. Cunningham, as he is a master of all three.
I cannot speak badly of Green to Go, (book 2) Crystal Blue, (book 3) or Second Chance Gold, (book 4) because they are all great, but Maroon was always one of my favorite colors, and Cunningham does seem to have a way with colors! This is my favorite installment since Red Right Return.


I found the search function in kindle to be quite useful because there were a few times when I had to go to look up the places and people in the story. As always, Cunningham is spot on. The meticulous research that goes into each of these books is a big part of what makes them so fascinating to me!
Cunningham had me checking the web for definitions, pronunciation and location of all sorts of places in Jamaica!

Oh, Jamaica... Yes, that is where this story takes us, through Negril, Kingston, Trench Town and more remote locations that you are going to have to map for yourself!

No, Buck isn't a real person, and the stories are all made up, but Cunningham has added a new depth of historical and geographical accuracy to this adventure... Though he is still using a 20 PSI scuba tank!!

That's an inside joke you will understand if you read my review of Book #1, HERE.

After five books of Buck's antics, I hope that Cunningham doesn't ever run out of colors!

In Maroon Rising, we travel through the Blue Mountains, up the hills and down the valleys, we travel by truck, jeep, 4-wheeler and along the coast, by boat and the beast, Riley's Grumman Widgeon.

Oh Snap!

Well, would you look at that!

My Daughter talked me into snap chat!

At first, I saw absolutely no use for this app, and I still think it’s probably relatively limited, but I have thought of a way to make it interesting.


I have one fairly unique talent. I can make decisions. Right or wrong, based on fact, fiction, situation or personal preference, I’m always quick to make a decision.

So, If you ever think to yourself, What Would Kahuna Do (WWKD?) I have a solution:
Add me on snap chat and send me your decisions.

Confusing wine list? I’ll help you pick.

Need help figuring out what beer to choose off the menu? I can do that!

Standing in front of the rum section at the liquor store and can’t figure out if you want the Abuelo or the Bacardi Silver? Yup... Send me a pick and I’ll help you!

Having a hard time deciding if you want the Ahi Poke or the Swordfish.... Heck, even if you can’t decide between the Big Mac or the Quarter-pounder with Cheese... I’ve got an opinion and I’m not afraid to share.

Take the advice, leave the advice, but at least you’ll know what I would choose.

Of course, we welcome other snaps too. If you follow along with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, you know I dig a whole lot of different stuff! So feel free to share away! 

Scan the code above and let’s see what you’ve got!
