The Open Air Asylum Called St. John

by Michael T. Mullen

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
St. John, US Virgin Islands, comedy book about the characters and events on the islands as described by a newbie.
What if you met the ghost of your grandfather while flying at 30,000 feet? What if you fell into a sewer system and had to spend the night? What if your doctor preferred payment in marijuana rather than cash for your treatment? What if you had to carry a box of chocolate cookies to fend off your own dog from attacking you? What if you were faced with completing an island house thousands of miles away where the natives spoke “Spanglish” and you had no building experience? All questions the protagonist must resolve in this uproarious comedy. There once was a successful and wealthy businessman who struck terror in the hearts of his competitors but was bored with the game of life. The call came at precisely 4:30 a.m. Colorado time. The Rastafarian screamed into the answered phone, “We be seein a dead man stuck in da concrete and we be owed $40,000 and we bees scared to come back. You’s ever see a concrete dead man?” “Calm down idiot,” yelled the controlled voice on the other end of the instrument, I’m on the next plane!” In that moment this powerful, controlling man with a huge ego and “winner takes all attitude,” was plunged on a collision course with the island of “No Problems, No Worries.”
About the author
MICHAEL MULLEN is a first time author after spending years building a highly successful multi-million dollar government contracting business. He lives in Aspen, Colorado and Sunset, South Carolina while continuing to build McMansions on his beloved island of St. John where he is closely involved with his friends and civic organizations on the island. As I’m not a famous, grumpy, reclusive author and try to treat everyone with the respect they deserve, I generally respond to emails within a few days. My second comedy, about St. John should be published in mid 2009 providing this one sells more than a few copies. Contact me with comments at: mtbgroup@hughes.net
