Between 1981 and 1983 I had a little cartoon strip on the island of Kauai while I was the stay-at-home dad for Melelani. The strip was called Kokonuts and was devoted to the lazy life on the beach. Two of the main characters were myself (Fiji Freddy) and my friend Murray, who was a flamingo. Hawaii doesn’t have native flamingos and that is a crying shame. There ended up being over 300 cartoons for the Garden Island Newspaper.
I base my novels on reality. However, reality sucks, so I make it 'my job' to work out all conflicts. I also guarantee that all of my characters fall in love (except for the bad guys who die such horrible deaths that even their own mothers wouldn't recognize their bodies in the morgue). In my books, everyone's favorite pets also become immortal. By the last chapter, everthing is tied up in a pretty, neat little bow. Better than reality & far more satisfying, yeah? Then, if any of my readers DON'T like my ending, I'll have them speak with my friend Vincent. After 15 minutes with Vinnie, I can guarantee that they'll change their mind.
