Scuba divers travel from all over the world to visit the little island of Bonaire, with its crystal-clear waters and a host of beautiful marine life. After three years in the “Divers Paradise”, divemaster Boone Fischer thought he’d seen it all; but on a routine afternoon dive, he spots something that will turn his tranquil life upside down.
From the arid shores of the ABC Islands to the tropical jungles of Venezuela—from the ocean depths of the Southern Caribbean, to the lush islands of the Northern Leewards, Deep Shadow takes Boone and the reader on an action-packed adventure filled with danger and suspense.
"The age-old adage of ‘write what you know’ becomes very important when you write about a technical subject like scuba diving. When you get all the details right, and throw in just the right amounts of action, humor, romance, and suspense, you have a novel like this." - Wayne Stinnett, bestselling author of Fallen Out.

This is a good list for me to do, but I’m going to tweak it a bit… Top Ten perks of being an author AND a narrator.
- Narrators make the best copy editors. I always find typos when narrating, even in big front-list titles from major publishers.
- If I find a clunky sentence, I can change it! I always narrate the book before sending it to the formatter. With “Deep Shadow” I ended up with a couple pages of tweaks.
- I get to choose characters with the audio in mind. Some accents are my kryptonite. You will find no people from Chicago in my books because I sound like that SNL “Da bearz” sketch.
- I get to try out NEW accents. In my first book, Zombie Bigfoot, I wanted an Afrikaner. That accent was tricky but I finally got it locked in and absolutely loved it.
- No back and forth during edits… the person who reads is the person who greenlights the project.
- I know the emotional intent of particular scenes and can color the performance accordingly.
- I know how to pronounce most of what I put in the book ahead of time. While writing the book, I will look up how to say locations as I add them.
- I get to submit myself for reviews on two different levels.
- It increases my fan base for purchases—those that like my narration… and those that like my writing.
- I get to keep ALL the royalties! Mwahahahahaha! Well… “all” of the portion the distribution companies let me have.
