The start of a book in Florida and Costa Rica. Drugs, Fashion, Romance, Family


I took this photo in the marina where this book started. Just like Jonah in the book, I went below deck and started typing on my laptop. A few months later, I was in Costa Rica and the two ideas came together. Lisa’s artistic talent and fashion knowledge, backed by Jonahs investment abilities, create a fashion empire that circles the globe. It wasn’t easy. There were great losses, and sacrifices, rewarded with family and generous wealth. I hope you enjoy the unusual characters in Amaretto with Coffee. Alex Banyan

 “David and I came out here today and fished, right here. We had a really good time and I could not believe how well we get along. He’s a smart kid!” I looked back down into the water.
“He should be, he has a very intelligent father!” She said sweetly.
“Yes, you and Andres are great parents.” I said.
I looked at Loren. She was shaking her head back and forth at me.
“You are so damned blind!” She said, as her attitude did a 180.
“Where did that come from?” I asked.
“Haven’t you noticed that David’s hair is a little bit light for a Costa Rican child?”
“Yes… but I thought maybe it would darken with age.”
“No stupid… have you noticed that he has flat feet?”
The color suddenly left my face. I stared at her and couldn’t speak.
“Yes, the answer to your question is, yes!”
