David Thyssen


I was born in the Netherlands where I never felt at home. Just before the turn of the century, and at the height of a successful career as a television cameraman, I decided to move my family to the Caribbean to pursue my dreams of living a life like Sandy in Flipper. After living on two different islands and a short stay in Florida, I now reside on St. Barths where I'm a father, I surf, and write (often while under attack by blood thirsty mosquitos rather than hearing the laughter of jolly dolphins). Other than three novels, I have also written several screenplays, and I'm always working on several projects at the same time.

To 13 year old Sage, the Caribbean island he just moved to with his apathetic mother might as well be deserted. Away from the turmoil of his old life in California, he is now left to deal with a past of abuse, but finds he holds his own key to happiness inside. More than a story of redemption, it tells of the innate human drive for life and love, a quest for happiness on which all of us embark.
