“The Caribbean Chronicles” is a humorous time-travel pirate fantasy adventure series. The third book, "The End of Calico Jack," won first place in the Selah awards for Young Adult literature. Book four, "No Good Stede Goes Unpunished" is a finalist for the Selah awards for Young Adult literature.
Eddie’s middle grade “Monster Mystery” series is wholesome, humorous reading with a flair for unexpected adventure. The series has a spooky but spiritual message based on real "monsters" (sort of) found in Scripture. Hints at werewolves, ghosts, mediums, vampires, walking dead, mummies, demons, witches, and phantoms are all mentioned in the Bible. But are they real? Nick Caden doesn't think so. In each episode he sets out to prove who the real killer is. The fourth book in the series, "Rumor of a Werewolf", took third place in the Selah awards for Middle Grade fiction. "Phantom Gunslinger" is a finalist in the Selah awards for Middle Grade fiction. Each book has OFFICIAL CRIMINAL REPORT QUESTIONS so readers can easily complete a book report.
All of Eddie's YA and Middle Grade books are available as audiobooks. Eddie calls his novels, "fun, fast reads for boys who don't like to read."
An avid sailor with a great sense of humor, Eddie has been married to a girl he met at a stoplight in West Palm Beach during spring break for... "too many years," Eddie's wife says.
"Not enough," says Eddie. By the way, the beer in Eddie's cartoon illustration is ginger beer, a seasick sailor's best friend.
From 2009 to 2019 Eddie served as CEO of Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas. He now writes full time and mentors authors.
