Key West Story by Rick Skwiot

Key West Story by Rick Skwiot
 
If the adage, write what you know, holds true for Key West Story then author, Rick Skwiot, leads a life of sun, surf, and sex in the Florida Keys. Yet, it’s more than that. It’s the story of a man trying to find what makes him happy. It’s also a story of creativity and the writing process.
 
Writer, Con Marten, made it big in the world of books by letting go of his integrity in order to reach for the cash. To get the contract, to make the sale, to rise on the New York Times Bestseller List, he compromised his talent by writing a “soulless page-turner” full of gimmicky commercial crap—crap that sold, and sold well. Now, the money’s gone, the bills are unpaid, the women in his life are out-of-control, and he has writer’s block.
 
Faced with being shot by one lover or marrying another for pay, Con chooses for a third option when an Ernest Hemingway look-a-like going by the name of Nick Adams appears with an offer to make five grand in a few days. Con meets Nick’s claims to be Hemingway with a healthy dose of skepticism, but as they head to Cuba on a clandestine adventure, the lines between reality and reincarnation blur.
 
Between women, guns, alcohol, sunken treasure, hurricanes, writing, and the ever-present question of Nick Adam’s true identity, Key West Story is a page-turner for which Rick Skwiot did not have to compromise.
