About the author:
Frankk is from a place and time gone by, writing, thinking, creating and now starting to create a little bit of havoc. In the 1990s Frankk was a personality that was subverted by the needs and dictates of a corporate life. His creativity, spontaneity and sense of fun sank like an anchor into the deep murky brine under the weight of responsibility, choked by the necktie of corporate HR policies.
Now the corporate world has ejected his alter ego. Redundant. Ejected. Effective immediately. Nothing to show for years of toil that won't fit into cardboard shoe box. Nothing more valuable than a coffee mug and a photograph. Frankk has re-emerged out into the sun, and is writing.
Frankk is a raconteur, bon-vivant, poet, author and adventurer. He writes novels, poems, recipes and a blog. His first published novel is the sailing adventure Drift.
A sailing Adventure Novel
The exciting adventure story of a man's epic sailing voyage.
Frankk constructs Camus-like imagery about Hemingway-like encounters, along with the thrill and terror of gales and bar crossings, rogue waves and perilous port entries, from a time long before GPS navigation.
It's also a story about how the little catamaran Kathleen helped reshape the author's outlook. This is handled with an amusing mix of 'bravado before the mirror', with a healthy dose of extraction of the urine.
The story moves along, slowing at the important bits, dwelling at the crucial. Just like at sea, tension builds from the most placid situations, and the mysterious perils of life out there pulse throughout.
The tale is told in the lucid detail.
Drift is the exciting first novel by Frankk Fatt
