But - The swamps will take what you love most, in an instant - The swamps took Mona Marie. This book is filled with love, romance, seduction, and betrayal. Of hidden treasure in Homosassa, knife-wielding women, moonshine, murder, and the feds. And that is just the beginning.
Jamie spent 25+ years in the Air Force. While serving in the Air Force, he was blessed doing things that no one else had ever done nor ever will do. However, this book is not about those missions; but about being born in the swamps of Florida, just outside a little fishing village named Homosassa. The house in the swamps had no screens and holes in the walls, but enough love for a city. Jamie went from the swamps to the White House. Strange things do happen. But that may be another book, "Things Not Spoken" - and, you may not have the (SCI, or SAP) clearance to read it. Now at 79 years of age, he’s retired, serves as a Gideon, does jail ministry, and likes to tell stories (some are even true). He is married to his wife Susie of 36 years. He has three children, R.J., Christy, and Angie. He has written five books has decided only to publish this one.
