I have had several requests from folks wanting a bit more information about “COUGAR!” especially since a title search brings up some unsavory activity related to the name. That certainly wasn’t intentional on my part, I can assure you! It just never crossed my mind that a cougar could be anything other than a big cat!
“COUGAR!” is basically a story of several good, moral people caught up in events that make their moral compasses drift more than a bit off course. As the story unfolds, the reader is taken through a roller coaster ride of emotionally charged events ranging from fear, anger, happiness, sadness, longing, and intense love.
I suppose the question that is raised when our characters run afoul of some very heavy handed government officials while in the course of their everyday activities is, “How would you, the reader, react if you were suddenly thrown into like circumstances beyond your control?”
I am happy to report that the screen play is almost finished, and it promises to be even more exciting than the book. I’m not giving out any “spoilers” here, so if you haven’t read the book, here is where you can find it either in print or as an eBook in all of the popular formats.
BARNES & NOBLE: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/cougar-ww-brock/1043022237?ean=2940016694382
I remember one warm week in January of 1982 when the temperatures that should have been in the thirties, were soaring into the seventies and the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean were covered with a thick soupy fog because of the warm air. Black Sea Bass prices were at an all time high on the New York market so everyone was out trying to trap a few boxes of the prize fish. The problem was that everyone was out fishing.
My mate and I left the dock early on Monday morning before daylight in the 31’9” BHM, the “Sea Wolf”, and headed to the Northeast of Murrells Inlet, S.C. in zero visibility. Since we did not have radar on board, we were extremely nervous about getting run over. The fog did not lift as the day wore on either, and the radio chatter let us know that we were sharing the water off of Little River, North Carolina with about twenty other boats. Dave and I took turns running carefully from one Loran coordinate to the next in hopes of finding a bed of Black Sea Bass. Smack in the middle of a great little spot was another boat, and we almost ran over him! We maneuvered off shore about a mile and finally, on an otherwise flat bottom, marked what looked like fish. Dave dropped a try line and immediately yelled for the traps. Up came three Sea Bass in the five pound range! Down went fourteen Chesapeake crab traps into the spot that was not much larger than our boat. In the course of six hours, Dave and I pulled 4600 pounds of mostly large fish aboard and iced them down. We also maintained radio silence until we had slipped away toward the Fish House under the cover of fog, hopeful of having the first fish shipped while the prices were up. In the week that followed, the “Sea Wolf” brought in a little over 10,000 pounds of fish in three trips, and we watched as the prices fell from $3.60 a pound for the first large fish on Monday to $.20 a pound for all of our fish on Friday.
As I write this today, there has been a five fish limit imposed on Black Sea Bass by NOAA, with no fish being allowed in the winter months. Just another abuse of power by a corrupt government agency run amok.
