Three month old Pomeranian, in sunny East Florida

She likes to dig the ice cubes out of her water bowl. Some she eats, and the rest she hides for later, some times, in my shoe.

Athena Veritas Alexander

During the day, I build cabinetry for 70′ luxury yachts here in Florida. Athena waits patiently.

In the morning, 5am, Athena whines in a high-pitched squeel, expressing her objections to my leaving. After a few seconds, the objections stop, and she goes to the master bedroom and sleeps on part of my robe that hangs from the bedpost, onto the floor. I usually return to the house about 3pm, and I apologize for my absence by playing in the back yard.

She takes me around the yard and shows me things that interested her during the day. We have a doggy door. Usually, it’s a branch from a palm tree that fell, a dead lizard in the grass, or strips of flesh that she stripped from the sides of a banana tree. We usually end lying in the grass, with her head propped on my arm, watching a mocking bird, a squirrel, or the kids playing in my neighbors pool.

After checking for leftovers in my lunch box, I go to my home office to work on things like… this. I have a stool under my desk, and that is Athena’s next landing spot. She stays there until I finish, and expects to be carried to the living room. It’s a Pom thing.

She’s only three pounds so far, and it’d funny watching her learn and experience everything for the first time. Today, she learned that she can jump from the back seat in the car, onto the arm rest, and back. Before, she would fall in the floor and stand there with her face between the two front seats. Today we put down the windows at the drive-thru and I watched her listening to the sounds, and smelling all of the flavors of a busy shopping area. She likes to dig the ice cubes out of her water bowl. Some she eats, and the rest she hides for later, some times, in my shoe.

This afternoon, we took a nap on my bed. Her idea of taking care of her human is to lick my ears and eyes. I often travel with sawdust residue from the shop. She did my ears, and moved to my eyes where I still wore my glasses. I saw her coming and removed the glasses, which she chased all over the bed, as if my eyes were in the glasses.

It’s a warm, quiet, Saturday. I think I may open the windows, and go back to bed.

If you’ve read this far, go look at my latest book. Book one, and part of book two, also has a Pomeranian.

Extending life, and Pharmaceutical Profits! Only the rich can afford it!

Each time I sat down at the keyboard, the writing got crazier, and more… out there. David Alexander

LD123CoversLongue Duree 1, 2, and 3 are available now on Amazon.

Each book begins and ends, without cliffhangers, and contains adult situations that may offend conservative readers.

Louis Bautista is a wealthy, unknown, currency trader. He enjoys his privacy and his easy way of life. He travels, sails, and has relationships as they become available.

In book 1, Louis is avoiding a hurricane in St. Croix, and flies south to Barbados to wait for an available ticket back to his Condo in West Palm Beach, FL.

Longue Durée I

While there, he meets a redhead woman, Celia, who brings in a 48′ sailboat, by herself, after her husband dies at sea. She needs to get the boat back to Hilton Head, SC. Louis sees a beautiful wealthy redhead, with a fantasy sailboat, and accepts the captain position. It was a long slow voyage.

The hurricane had passed, so they stopped in St. Croix, for some time on land. While in St. Croix, they witnessed a murder in an alley. Before being shot, the man passed a package to Louis while they were hidden in a dark doorway. This package held the contents for the rest of this series. In two ampules were the ingredients for life everlasting, (Longue Durée), a compound that reversed aging and related medical conditions.

In book 2, the pharmaceutical empire that Louis and his partner Dr. Martin Burstein created had burnt to the ground and the Dr. was killed in the fire. Louis now lived on the sovereign island of Nevis, married to Celia’s little sister and model, Nicole.

Longue Durée II

Island life became too slow for Louis. Now considerably older, and remarried to Judy, they use Louis’s new identity as Louis Montgomery and create another pharmaceutical empire in Orlando, FL. They produce many derivatives from the original formula, but only Louis has the Longue Durée. Now the second wealthiest person on the planet, Louis marries the wealthiest man’s daughter. Blinded by his lust, he fails to see the evil manipulation that is being carried out.

In book 3, Louis’s values have changed. After his last wife tried to murder him, Louis Montgomery needed a change in his life.

Longue Duree III 3

Longue Durée III

With his self confidence shaken, he leaves the country, hires himself out as a captain on a sailing yacht, and eventually returns to his company in Orlando. With his secret age reversing drug keeping him young, he remained in his mid-thirties, for the last hundred years.

Louis had always been drawn to attractive women. Out of frustration, he went to a church, and met a conservative girl that fascinated him. He was in love, she was completely different, but after making his fortune in scientific research, he doubted their compatibility.

There were battles, conflicts, and separations, but Louis was now a father. His son was still born, and once again, scientific research prevailed, bringing his son back to life. The experimental process that saved him, had a far-reaching payback. Michael, by the age of seven, was working in the company lab, and by fifteen, had expanded his understanding of life, existence, and the composition of the universe beyond all scientists. There were no names for the things he was discovering.

Along with his genius status, Michael was still a teenager, with all of the insecurities, and attitudes. He wanted a car, a job with a paycheck, a girlfriend, and to be able to understand and control the universe.

Each book begins and ends, without cliffhangers, and contains adult situations that may offend conservative readers.

Louis Montgomery loved his supercharged Jaguar. He’s having second thoughts about his son.

I have been on island now for six or eight weeks, and still can’t get Sandra off my mind. I decided to go back and try to apologize for my lust. I don’t think I have ever done that before.

Louis is a father now in book 3. His son was born dead. Once again an experimental product brought Michael to life, with long range consequences. He was a genius and a problem teenager.

(Martin calls Louis in Nevis.)

“Louis, take the phone walk outside.”

“Okay, I’m alone, now. What’s up?”
“Michael was in a car wreck last night.”
“Is he okay?”
“Yes, but he had a girl with him.”
“The blond that delivers your supplies?”
“Yes, he told you about her?”
“Yes, so, how are they?”
“It was a bad wreck. The news channel said it was scattered over a quarter mile of I-95.”
“Martin! Is Michael all right?”
“Yes. Michael had a few broken bones, and a cut on his forehead, but I talked to him after the surgery and he is completely operational. The bionites saved him. Without them, he may have died.”
“What about the girl?”
“She’s in a coma. Evidently, from what Michael confided in me, she had just given him a blow job across the console of the Jaguar. She has a broken neck, a broken arm, and a fractured hip.”
“You mean the Mini Cooper?”
“No, he was driving your Jag.” (I went silent.) “Louis… Louis… the Jag was totaled.”
“Were there any other cars involved?”
“No, fortunately it was late. Michael said he thinks she accidently pushed the shifter into a lower gear while the car was in excess of 150 mph. It skidded, went sideways, and flipped over and over, until it slid on the roof against a concrete barrier wall near Melbourne. They are lucky to be alive.”
“Make a few phone calls and see if we can buy this police report. Find out if his girlfriend has family, and what we must do to make it all go away. Get her the best medical care we can buy. My insurance on the Jag will cover a lot of it, but I would guess that it will go beyond that, when they run my financials.”
“Louis, we have another problem.”
“Oh, yeah?”
“They had them in the emergency ward before they called me. They have a blood test on Michael…”
“… and the fuck’n bionites will show up in the blood tests. SHIT!”
“Not necessarily, it depends on which tests they are running. The main thing they were looking for was drugs and alcohol. If they stop there, we will be okay.”

(This is just one of MANY situations in this series. They are all available now, on Amazon)

What if there was an age-reversing drug?

I reloaded my metal hard drive. I am the delivery captain now. Yes, a delivery captain, and Celia is the customer.

Celia brought in a 46′ sailboat single handed to Barbados. Her marine architect husband died of a heart attack at sea.

Louis, had been vacationing in St. Croix. With a hurricane approaching, and no vacant airline seats available, he exchanged his ticket to Florida, for a night in Barbados, and a redirected flight back to the U. S. Surprise! The flights out of Barbados were also canceled the next day.

Celia needed her yacht sailed back to Hilton head, and Louis needed to get back to West Palm Beach. They decided to join resources and spend the next few months sailing home. When two people spend time on the ocean, you have to rely on each other for your life. You tell your secrets on night-watch, with a glass of wine. Eventually… after a knock-down squall, you turn on the auto-pilot, go below deck to pull off the cold, wet, clothes, and two warm bodies find comfort in the master cabin.

Order Longue Durée, Extending Life, NOW!

WARNING!       All 3 books of the Longue Durée series contain some, adult content. Louis was a young FX trader from a wealthy family, a sailor, traveler, and had desires like any… real man. If this is offensive to you, please choose literature from the YA, young adult category. For the rest of us… fasten your seat belts!

They stopped and spent weeks in St. Croix. One night after a late supper, Louis pulled Celia into an old limestone alley with arched doorways and started seducing her. A man ran down the alley with a small package, stopped and looked at Louis and Celia, and threw them the package. He ran back to the street where three men emptied their guns into him. They decided this was a good time to continue their voyage.

The closer they got to the United States, the more their old personalities and Celia’s widow guilt, surfaced. Louis hoped that Celia would stay with him in West Palm Beach, but she now, with declining emotions, wanted him to take her home to Hilton Head.

He secured the yacht to her gated owner-dock, and spent the night at her home in Golden Crane Estates. She had him sleep in the guest bedroom, and had a airline ticket for him waiting in the morning.

“What about the package?” You ask.

It’s not that uncommon to live a long life now. Science has even made progress that can slow down the loss of your memory and mental functions, but with all of that, you still exist in a body that is fragile, susceptible, and limited. What if there was a product that could reverse your age to say 25 or 30? It is expensive to produce. What would you pay?

It’s in the package!

The chemical is a fountain of youth, compound, that they push into testing and production. This is a love story with a fantasy touch. It’s a sailor’s love story, written by a sailor.

We are born, imperfect humans. Louis was no exception, and while persueing the company of of a wealthy, widow in Barbados, is handed the ingredients for eternal life. Longue Durée, can not only reverse your mind and body to a younger age, but also cures many issues like Osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s.

There is only one catch! It’s expensive.

How would the world respond to such a mericle drug? What would they pay to have all of their pain and imperfections removed? Sounds good, but… what about social security and pension plans. If people don’t die from age, cancer, or a heart attack, the pharmaceutical and medical empires would go bankrupt. The wealthy will still want Longue Durée, but surely it cannot be available to, everyone?

Nevis, St. Kitts, Reverse aging, extended life, and a safe haven. Author David Alexander

What would you pay to reverse aging and achieve perfect health? Louis hid the secret on Nevis Island.

 

Longue Duree3

Available on AMAZON

Real life research for book one.

Basseterre, St. Kitts, was quiet first thing in the morning. It was humid, 85 deg. and we stopped at an open air bar for a cold soda. The shops displayed all of the same tourist products that you see all through the Caribbean, and at 10am we were still walking with empty hands.

A few minutes later, the gates were opened for the cruise ships and the cattle hit the grazing grounds. We waddled through the lines of the shops and heard similar sales pitches in each one.

I am a sailor, with my own boat. I usually avoid tourist areas and drop my anchor away from the cruise ships.

Here, the economy survives on tourism. Four Seasons Resort employs 10,000 of the Kittitians. I like to find the islands that have not been corrupted by the desire for wealth. I’ve lived on other islands only to watch cable TV, and tourism, turn a peaceful society into roving gangs and drug dealers. It is still years out for St. Kitts, but they are on that path. The outside force… and big dollar investors, are already here. 

 

Newcastle pottery in the mountains of Nevis, has a woman that forms all of her creations from Nevis clay. When she is satisfied with her work, it is fired behind the building in coconut husks. I bought the piece below for $18.00

When I lived in St. Croix, I usually had my breakfast on the boardwalk in Christiansted. It was an open air restaurant and I poured some water into a bowl, dissolved a few packets of sugar in it, and the banana birds came from all directions. One time, I had eight birds fluttering around the sugar water. This piece reminded me of that. In the picture, it is on my coffee table in Florida with the left-over EC coins in it.

I buy coffee cups everywhere I go. What can I say?

Below, I am at the stern of the ferry, with St. Kitts in the background.

At last, I am walking up the dock toward town. Good vibes here.

The main purpose of this vacation was to get a break from the fifty-six hour weeks I’m working now. I build cabinetry for 70′ yacht interiors. Each night when I return to my home, I add about 4 hrs a night for my writing, and advertising. (Such as this).

The strangest thing about this vacation was that Nevis / St. Kitts, were the safe havens for the main character in my next three books. As Louis refined a chemical that embellished and extended his life, he became prosecuted by the elite wealthy, politicians, and pharmaceutical companies. He became wealthy and the demand exceeded the supply. Through his prolonged life, and several wives, he escaped to a home in Nevis, in all three books. Nevis is a sovereign country and a safe haven for wealth. I had never been there and had done all my research on the internet.

In my books, Louis played chess with an old island man in the square by the police station. The old man, named Charles, had never been beat. I went up to a security guard at a bank and described my fictional park. He pointed up the road and told me where to find the police station, and the little park. I told him about the book. He said there was a man that played chess and checkers there, and is never beat… but his name is not Charles.

It was so strange to be walking through the pages of my books. They are all three finished. Longue Duree I, Extended Life, is on Amazon now. Book II is back from the editor, and I am making suggested changes. Book III is with the editor now. “She has been very quiet.”

Hurricane Dorian, I’m still here!

Humans are such complicated creatures!

59b76659bc54a411

Good morning! Hurricane Dorian just passed us here in Florida, with nothing more then a light rain. We had days to prepare, and even put the boat on the hard. It has seven stands under it and four straps securing it to the ground.

The shutters on my land-home were installed with teak grills, (Extra boat parts), installed to view through them, and allow air-ventilation. Fortunately, none of this was necessary.

The Bahamas took the hit, as we have all witnessed on the TV. Being a sailor, I monitor the comments and pictures from other sailors, and island residents, with considerably more validity then the media.  Already, sailors are organizing material and labor from all over the world to help restore the Bahamas. Word from the island is to wait, for the rebuild. It’s too early.

The best thing I heard in their conversations was  between people still on the islands and people that evacuated and still own property in the Bahamas. They were telling the surviving residents that if their business or property was still there, use anything they need. If it has a roof, use it for shelter. Consider anything that I own, community property.

Humans are such complicated creatures. David Alexander
