The author takes the reader on a wide assortment of short story adventures and escapades, all of which occur in bars and spans thousands of miles and many years. Many of the stories are 100% true, while others are based on factual events and embellished. Some stories will have you laughing, while others may just stimulate some of your grey matter.

To quote the author “If, as a writer you can’t find inspiration in what you see in bars, be it the patrons, or the situations they find themselves in, it’s time to throw away your keyboard”

In Driftwood: Stories from the Margarita Road, free-spirited Americans fleeing mundane and disappointing lives head south in search of a fresh start. When they end up in Playa Paraiso—a lush, unspoiled beach town on Mexico’s idyllic Caribbean coast—they discover the hedonistic and unpredictable world of the tropics.
Poppa, the savvy, irreverent owner of the local beach bar, is always willing to lend an ear and a helping hand to his fellow expats. He tells their stories of life in paradise, as together they deal with love and loss, vicious drug dealers, charming rogues, encroaching civilization, and a devastating hurricane.
The book’s interwoven vignettes explore the heart’s tug of war between the need for a place to call home and the desire for the freedom to roam.
Reviewers say Driftwood mixes the charm of John Steinbeck, the excitement of Joseph Conrad, and the flip-flop escapism of Jimmy Buffett—all set against a backdrop of stunning blue water and endless white sand.
Butterfly, take me out of this town. I’m trying to leave but there’s too much holding me down. It seems so easy the way that you breeze by. I’d like to come along and enjoy the ride so I can be free like you. Butterfly, can I borrow your wings? I’d like to fly for a while and see a newer scene. Afterwards then I could decide if I still want to run and hide.

The people and places who inspired Jimmy Buffett songs are brought to life by Key West native Scott Atwell, who celebrates the 50th anniversary of the singer’s arrival to the island in 1971 with 50 backstories of his most beloved songs. Even the price of the hard copy edition ($19.71) is a nod to the anniversary. From the original tune that forged Buffett’s path to Key West (Railroad Lady) to the song that changed everything (Margaritaville), including never-before published accounts of the “pirate” Phil Clark, Buffett Backstories connects with the people and places that have inspired generations of Parrot Heads. Former Coral Reefer Band road manager Bob “LipBalm” Liberman provides zany anecdotes in the foreword and the afterword is anchored by a map of Buffett’s Key West haunts.
