Blacktip Island

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
An inadvertent embezzler high-tails it to the Caribbean, a step ahead of the Feds and desperate to become an anonymous divemaster in paradise. On Blacktip Island, though, he quickly discovers “tropics” doesn’t mean “paradise,” and rookie boat hands stick out like a reef at low tide. An irresistible comedy for anyone who’s ever dreamed of trading the rat race for a hammock under the palm trees. More

About Tim W. Jackson

Armed with a newly-minted master’s degree in creative writing, former journalist Tim W. Jackson knew he was qualified to be a bartender, a waiter, or to apply to a PhD program. Instead he chose Secret Option D: run off to the Caribbean to work as a scuba instructor by day and write fiction at night. More than a decade later, he still wishes that was half as interesting as it sounds. Or even a quarter . . .

Jackson is the award-winning author of the literary novel Mangrove Underground and The Blacktip Times humor blog. His second novel, Blacktip Island, is a comic misadventure set in the Caribbean. His “Tales From Blacktip Island” short stories have been published in literary journals worldwide. He is currently concocting his next Blacktip Island novel, The Secret of Rosalita Flats.

A portion of the proceeds from his stories goes to the Nature Conservancy’s Coral Reef Preservation Fund.
