About the author:
Raised in New York, Boston and Brussels, Tony Doris unhitched from his newspaper career at age 30 and went walkabout. He donned a backpack and trekked through Asia and Australia before marooning himself in Tahiti, where he reported for a local newsweekly in French and English and was paid in breadfruit.
When the statute of limitations elapsed on his bank account he returned stateside, settling in Miami and West Palm Beach, where he dug into the worlds of government and business as an investigative reporter, editor and columnist.
Doris has a bachelor's degree in English from Franklin & Marshall College and a master's in journalism from Boston University.
He has reported for The Palm Beach Post, St. Petersburg Times, Miami Daily Business Review, New Haven Register and Arlington (Mass.) Advocate.
He runs the occasional marathon at speeds too slow for cameras to record, is a crossword fanatic and a lapsed guitarist.
Floater is Doris' second novel, drawing loosely on his reporting years in Miami. Some characters in Floater appeared in his debut, Dirt.
A third critically acclaimed novel is in the works. For more information, please visit http://www.TonyDoris.com.
Floater, a sequel to Dirt, is novelist Tony Doris's tale of a South Florida newspaper reporter self-banished to a waterfront squatter's hut, who finds himself cast back into action by a murder and political intrigue that turns the city and its struggling newspaper inside out.
