BOTB Semifinalist - Peckerwood Twist, by Nathan Lichtwar
Peckerwood Twist, by Nathan Lichtwar
“Heat is something I never seem able to escape. It’s not just about climate. Heat comes in many forms and follows me wherever I go, or maybe the truth is that I’m drawn to it like the proverbial moth to a flame. Like in this small town on the east coast of Florida. Nighttime in Port Selerno is as hot as if it were midday. If you frequent some of the places I do, it can get even hotter.” -- This first novel of Nat Lichtwar's has reviewers calling it a rollercoaster ride and clamoring for the sequel.
Captain Nathan Lichtwar began his over 45-year life on the sea as a young sailor for the U.S. Coast Guard then moved to tug boats, including a stint as a New York Harbor ferryboat operator. Lichtwar is the owner-operator of Cielo e Mar Charter Service and New York Boat Charter, and is publisher-owner of Cross Up, Long Island’s Motorcycle Scene. Called the Old Man of the Sea, he has traveled extensively throughout the world, on and off the beaten tract. He’s been a guest on Oprah twice. His travels and adventures inspired the writing of Peckerwood Twist, and is, as Nat likes to say, “…either 90% true and 10% false, or just the opposite.”
