Staff Reviews

Welcome to the wonderfully odd community of Wobbly Florida! One can't help but be part of the neighborhood, as new residents Peter and Mary attempt to fit in. From the costumed corner sign spinning turf wars, to the Fonda and Hopper Easy Rider wannabes, Tim Dorsey uses his comical relaxed best friend approach to tell his tale of small town hijinks. This novel delivers the goods in more ways than one. Coconut Cowboy is an enjoyable creation of literary humor that will have the reader not only immersed in the story, but laughing out loud throughout.

— Mike, Albuquerque


Channeling his inner Easy Rider, Serge Storms saddles up for his most epic, lethal, and hilarious road trip ever as he revvs off to find the lost American Dream . . . starting in the Florida Panhandle.

Obsessed with the iconic Sixties classic Easy Rider, encyclopedic Floridaphile, lovable serial killer, and movie buff extraordinaire Serge A. Storms devises his wildest plan yet: finish the journey begun by his freewheeling heroes, Captain America and Billy, tragically cut short by some shotgun-wielding rednecks.

Setting a course for the Florida panhandle, Captain Serge—with Coleman literally riding shotgun—mounts his classic motorcycle and hits the highway in search of the real America: the apple-pie-eating, freedom-swilling moms and pops of Main Street USA.

But the America he finds in the rural burgs dotting the neck of the peninsula is a little bit different . . . and a whole lot weirder than anything Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper encountered. In a state where criminal politicians are more common than gators, Serge and Coleman discover one particular speed-trap locale so aggressively inept at corruption that investigators are baffled where to start.

Expect nothing less than madness, mayhem, ingenious homicides, and mind-altering pharmaceuticals when Serge and Coleman’s path intersects with the Sunshine State’s hyper-dysfunctional rusticity.
