I’m Gonna Live My Life Like A Jimmy Buffett Song

   Anthony Bjorklund helped me out when I was just getting started. I asked him for a favor because he has such a loyal fan following, and because his books are just so darn good. They take you away to the Islands. I think some of the readers of my book, Leap of Faith / Quit Your Job and Live on a Boat, would appreciate Anthony’s books as well. 

   It all started with “I’m Gonna Live My Life Like A Jimmy Buffett Song”.   The first book of Di Island Song Series,  begins the adventures of Jack Danielson. Jack always thought he had the perfect recipe for happiness; a serious career, a tall, skinny, blonde girlfriend, and a condo full of Ikea furniture. But one day an icy Minnesota freeway and a Peterbilt truck make him rethink his choices in life, and he hits the road and migrates south in search of rum, spices, new experiences, and a song of his own to sing. Written as a tribute to Jimmy Buffett and the Parrot Head way, this light and breezy book is seasoned with a healthy peppering of Buffetteria, and is the perfect read for anyone who ever dreamed of chucking the daily grind and slowing down to live each moment to the fullest.


“Jack And Di Rum Song” is the second book in Di Island Song Series, and the equally fun sequel to “I’m Gonna Live My Life Like A Jimmy Buffett Song”. The adventures of Jack Danielson continue right where they left off, when our hero inherits a dilapidated rum factory on a tiny island in the Caribbean. Filled with more colorful characters than you can shake a limbo stick at, “Jack And Di Rum Song” is a perfectly mixed concoction for an escape from the ordinary. Just be sure to keep a weather eye open for pirates…


“Let Di Song Of Change Blow Over My Head” is the sequel to “Jack And Di Rum Song”, and book three of Di Island Song Series. Travel once more to di island and join Jack Danielson,Crazy Chester, Jolly Roger, seaplane pilot Gus Grizwood, the ghost of pirate Captain Billy Black Dog, and the rest of di islanders as a song of change blows towards their tiny Caribbean home. It’s a story of islandittude at its best, filled with tropical fun, sun, and rum.


“I Just Had To Go Back To Di Island” is the fourth book in Di Island Song Series. Yes, the tropical adventures of Jack Danielson continue after all. Return to di island once more for the Rum Daze Festival, political intrigue, lost Puerto Rican pirate treasure, and a quick solar recharge with Moon Man. It’s a groovy time for all, mon.


Crazy Chester is missing, and there’s only one man for the job; Captain Harry, the son of di beach. Join Harry and many of your old friends from Di Island Song Series Novels, as well as some new faces from Paradiso Shores, as they follow the island hopping trail of that shoeless and shirtless forever, Caribbean amphibian, Crazy Chester.
The Captain Harry Series of books, of which this is the first, are light mysteries focusing as much on the joy of life in the tropics as the whodunnit aspect of the story. You can expect colorful characters to go with those colorful shirts and drinks, and a simple, laid back style of writing that’s perfect for that beach towel in Jamaica or backyard hammock.
Note: While this story is the first in a new series of books (The Captain Harry Series) and was written to stand on its own, it incorporates many of the characters from my Island Song Series novels. In other words, in most ways it is both the first story in the Captain Harry Series and the fifth in Di Island Song Series, overall. How you choose to enjoy them is entirely up to you.
All of Anthony’s book are available at Amazon, including complete collections in one set.
