Dalt Frisbie’s plans to build an amusement park are met with wondrous enthusiasm by the natives. But when Richie Rat starts marking his territory on his first visit to town, and Mr. $-ner arrives with all sorts of riff-raff, their simple lives are changed forever.
Populated with cartoon vermin, real vermin, people dressed as cartoon vermin, former Ratkateers, a momilogist, and a bevy of bikini-clad beauties (one very well-read), “Pollenesia” is a charmingly vitriolic satire of Florida, the tourist industry, and society in general. Told from the point of view of a native fortuitous enough to have landed a janitorial job at the park, this book is a lark for Florida-lovers and Florida-haters alike.
(Not to mention one of the most outrageous and disgusting climaxes in literary history!)

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Satire, for me, seems to write itself. Other genres are difficult.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Take the creative criticism while never losing sight of your goal. Also, force yourself to write when you don’t feel like it, and don’t listen to the excuses not to write that your mind will think up.
From the book:
Uh… ahem. Mr. Tosalini has taken off quite precipitously to live as somewhat of a hermit on an uninhabited island off the coast of Florida—at his age, too. He doesn’t seem to understand that publishing a book consists of more than just dumping off the manuscript with me (the publisher). Bottom line is he left before I could get a good bio from him. All I know is that he is a native Floridian, and graduated from one of the state’s fine universities. Apparently he is unmarried; a wife wouldn’t allow him to go gallivanting off playing Tarzan. He instructed me to deposit any royalties from this book into an account and he will pick it up at his earliest convenience.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
As a native Floridian, I can take only so much of all the tourist-hype and sugary-sweet façade. Some of us down here are not on vacation in perpetuity… 🙂
