Washington, DC -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/16/2014 -- With a fresh, authentic writing style, a cross between Mark Twain and Elmore Leonard, first-time author David Culberson brings to life a wonderful coming of age story, told in the bright pastels of youthful enthusiasm. Back Time on Love City, a factually-based work of fiction, is set amongst the pristine backdrop of an island in the Caribbean. Pre-AIDS, pre-DEA, way pre-9 11 and seemingly light years away from today’s world, the story takes place just a few years ago, when the island’s cultural fabric was made up of a blend of strange characters, all with magnetic personalities and somehow living together in chaotic harmony.
Torn between the relative safety of doing what was expected, living and working close to home in Middle America farmland, or blindly plunging into 'sharky' waters (literally), our young hero readily chose the sharks. A rookie to the sea and island life, he was innocently drawn to a modern-day pirate by the name of Captain Jay. With high drive and low scruples, the pirate takes the rookie under his dark wing. Often times, Jay's antics nearly kill him but, somehow, our main character grew stronger and more savvy, eventually transforming his dark lessons into a very bright future – only after tragic events caused their roles to reverse.
A resident of the island of St. John from the 70’s into the 90’s, Culberson has written a rollicking good read, full of adventure, danger, and laughter, and is sure to transport the reader back time to a perfect place called “Love City.”
Back Time on Love City was released in November 2013, published by Bronson Spectral Publications. The book is available in paperback, Kindle, and eBooks through Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/Back-Time-Love-City-Carnival. Also available at Barnes and Noble.
