Read full description of the books Tripping on Coconuts: An Author's Adventures and Misadventures in the Florida Keys:After frequenting the Florida Keys for decades and bringing them to life in many of his novels, author Tom Winton has now written about his deep love affair with that magical string of islands. But TRIPPING ON COCONUTS is not all sunny memories, calm seas, and smooth sailing. It's also chock full of the author's zany adventures and mishaps--two of which are kindle-clutching life-and-death situations. With his trademark cinematic writing style, Winton, a longtime Florida resident, will make you feel like you're actually right there beside him during his escapades and exploits. You'll envision every quirk at his funky ten-minute Key West wedding. You'll feel like you, too, are risking your life during a daring rescue attempt in dangerous windblown seas. You'll feel a shotgun being waved at you in the dark of night and learn life lessons in bars from Key Largo all the down way to Key West. But that's just the beginning. So slap on some suntan oil, mix a margarita, and come TRIPPING ON COCONUTS to a fascinating place where memories are made.
Read information about the authorIt has been said in the Winton family that the day Tom was born a ferocious blizzard bore down on New York City. And that while in labor, his mother--her head down alongside his father--forged her way through near-blinding white snow to a Queens subway station where the two boarded a train to a Manhattan hospital. It has also been said that the doctor who later that day delivered Tom had to smack him on the behind three times before he'd cry.
At the only PTA meeting his parents ever attended, his third grade teacher told them, "Tommy can do anything he wants to. But he must be pushed." But Tommy didn't like to be pushed. And some things never change. He has always been a free spirit--doing what he wanted, when he wanted. As a result of his adventuresome nature, he's lived a life of erratic twists and turns. And that is what today gives him a bottomless well of experiences to draw from when he sits down to write novels.
Winton has done everything from pounding spikes on a rowdy railroad gang in the Colorado Rockies to driving a taxicab in some of New York City's most dangerous neighborhoods. He's also been a Manhattan sales executive, a ditch digger/pipe installer in Florida, a house painter on Long Island, a go-for in Maine, an entrepreneur and a host of other things. Along with his wife and their Jack Russell Terrier, Ginger, he now lives a more toned down life somewhere in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.
