When Jesse McDermitt retires from the Marine Corps, he has no idea what he will do for the rest of his life. At 37, his greatest skill is killing people from up to a mile away. He knows there aren’t many job opportunities in the civilian world for that. However, he knows the south Florida waters, is an experienced diver, loves to fish, and knows his way around a boat.
A waitress in a waterfront restaurant in north Key Largo gives him an idea and he runs with it. An old friend helps get him set up as a charter fishing and dive boat Captain and a new friend helps him buy just the right boat.
Danger lurks in the sleepy little town of Marathon, in the middle of the Florida Keys, as well as in the swamps of the Everglades. But danger doesn’t expect to run into a man like Jesse, who will not only respond swiftly, but with a vengeance unexpected.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Fallen Out was written in response to many readers requests for more information about the background of the characters in the series.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The main character is the result of several short stories I wrote in the eighties. A little older, a little wiser, but still full of the sense of adventure I myself have always had.
Wayne Stinnett is a Veteran of the Marine Corps and writes action/adventure set in the Florida Keys. He’s worked as a deckhand, commercial fisherman, Divemaster, taxi driver, construction manager, and truck driver. He lives in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, near Travelers Rest, SC with his wife and youngest daughter. They also have three other grown children, three grand children, two dogs and a whole flock of parakeets. He was born in St. Albans, WV, and grew up in Melbourne, FL. He’s also lived in Marathon, FL, in the fabulous Florida Keys.
