Sailor Stone lives in the southern United States on the Atlantic coast where he stays busy writing novels and short stories in many genres, including Magical Realism, Coming of Age, Literary, and Inspirational Romance.
His stories often feature protagonists that are trying to find their way in a cold and uncaring world, and where many times they get a slight, but helpful, nudge toward the truth from the supernatural.
Besides writing, he enjoys playing sports, photography, and studying the arts, philosophy, and religion. He likes discovering great books written by great authors, tasting new beers and wines, playing tennis, sitting in the back of a darkened nightclub and listening to a jazz trio take a long ride, being out on the open water in a boat, and worshiping quietly in the back of a church.
He considers the enjoyment of all the above to be multiplied exponentially by the accompaniment of his family and friends.

She hangs on a cross, her soul in a land—eternal—closer to death than life…
Chosen to be a ball-girl at the world’s biggest tennis tournament, thirteen-year-old Maria Martin came north to New York from the Georgia peach country with a racket in her hand, a dream in her orphan-heart, and two evil men chasing after her—for she’d just found (and then hid) their darkest secret in the days before she left—and they will stop at nothing to get it back.
Russell Tucker is the comeback champ. He is a man, who, on the evening after his biggest court victory, somehow finds himself trying to save the life of his newly befriended ball-girl as she is being savagely attacked in her hotel.
But he is overpowered by her attackers, and as they go to shoot him down, this young girl dives between him and their gun and takes his bullet.
Two months later, as Maria lies in a coma—inching ever closer to dying with the passing of each night—Russell remembers something from his past and he begins to tell her his own coming-of-age story hoping that Maria will find in his words something to reach for as she now dares to come back and face her evil attackers.

As the night falls and the moon rises over the city, a killer, knife in hand, takes to the streets. In that same city, a runner, a beautiful woman, ties her shoes and steps out into the moonlight for a run through its shadowed avenues. One of them is raging and seeks bloody revenge. The other has no idea what is coming.
He knew. Going to sea alone and unprepared wasn’t the wisest thing to do. But he was too tired to care.
And so not knowing if anything ever mattered, he hoisted sail, hoping to find something to set a course for – something like a guiding star.
Then the gale hit, and all of the stars were obscured, and he figured this was a good way to die. But the island, unchartered, got in the way of even that.
