Michael Latta is an ex-New York, Paris, San Francisco advertising agency art director, writer, creative director and published magazine and newspaper writer. His past also includes ex-Navy brat, ex-Marine Corps, ex-race driver, ex-husband, ex-Peace Corps and life long sailor.
During his previous Madison Avenue life, Michael managed to decompress between marriages or getting fired, by sailing off shore to tropical isles for as long as he had beer money. Each time it became harder to return to a life of fiscal responsibility.
Now he happily lives aboard and single-hands his traditional sailing cutter, Narwhal wherever he feels like. Over the years he has cruised up and down both coasts, Bahamas, Caribbean, the South Pacific, including Tahiti, and presently the Sea of Cortez. His latest favorite home port is Mazatlan, Mexico where he is busy writing a bi-monthly column, Mike Time and the next Deep Salt novel.
In Deep Salt
A lone salvage diver anchors where fear rules the beach and death guards the barrier reef.
A mysterious woman plots above. A grotesque danger lurks below. A deep rage surfaces on the high seas.
