Florida Ready


I’m looking ahead to vacation time already. I’m anxious to visit three very cool grandsons in the strange state of Florida. Yes, it’s very strange. In the old days the strange stories came from the land of fruits and nuts, where I live. Now just about any strange weird story to make the news originates in Florida. Two of my favorite writers, Tim Dorsey and Carl Hiaasen live and write far out crazy stories, all centered in Florida. Here’s what Carl Hiaasen has to say about Florida: “The Florida in my novels is not as seedy as the real Florida. It’s hard to stay ahead of the curve. Every time I write a scene that I think is the sickest thing I have ever dreamed up, it is surpassed by something that happens in real life.”

My new novel I’m working on now has a few important scenes in Florida so I’ll get the grand kids and some research this summer. Thanks to Tim Dorsey for sharing some Buzz-Feed facts about Florida. Here are FIVE THINGS THAT WOULD ONLY HAPPEN IN FLORIDA:
1) A LLAMA GETTING TASERED BY THE POLICE
