Friends that I have met over the years.
“…..All William could do at this point was stare up at the face of fate. Death looked him square in the eyes. He would swear later that he saw Murphy riding high on its shoulder.
The boat rolled violently onto its port side. The wave drove the boat totally up on its side. The mast and covered sail forced into the water. Before the boat had a chance to rock back upright, the water from the breaking wave crashed down upon the now sideways lying boat. …..With the boat upside down, no one could hear the screams that came from inside. Lea who had been asleep all curled up in a corner only moments before, found herself tossed about like a rag doll only to land on the ceiling.

As a retired Firefighter/Paramedic, Stan Loveday lives aboard an aging sailboat in the Florida keys. He is the author of “Dark Wave” and the new novel “Fireman Down”. With over 35 years’ of experience, he now travels aboard his sailboat ‘SE of Disorder‘. An experienced sailor with thousands of sea miles under his keel, he brings real life experiences to the pages of his works. When not traveling the Caribbean, he resides on the waters of Key West, Florida.
“My writing is drawn on real life experiences to immerse the reader into the novel and feel the terror of when things go south. All that is lacking is the feel of salt water as it hits your face.”
