It’s the go-go 1980s when journalist Wally Pearson gets mugged in Times Square. It’s a jolt that prompts him to throw away his career and open a cafe in his small hometown. Little does he know that in doing so he’s about to get entrapped in the collision of fame, fortune, ambition and love in the northwoods of Wisconsin—all tempered with more than a little delusion.

Tales from the Loon Town Cafe seeks to capture the unique character and rhythms of small Midwestern towns. But it also recognizes the undercurrent of despair and sometime downright loopiness that emerges when most everyone thinks they know most everything that’s going on.

But of course they don’t really know all, and that’s why Tales from the Loon Town Cafe is ultimately a mystery of life.

About the Author:
Dennis Frahmann is a journalist, writer and award-winning marketer who grew up in small towns in Wisconsin and now lives in Cambria, California. Tales from the Loon Town Cafe is his first novel.

Bored but resourceful sailors are all but stranded on an obscure South Pacific island with no means of recreation except for what they invent on their own – an illegal still, hidden saloon and bordello, etc. There is drinking, scheming and romance and a lingering feud between the ship’s captain and his superior, a pompous admiral. And what does the Kushmaker have up his sleeve? What is he hiding? It’s a fun story with no moral or messages. Anyone who enjoys humor will like this book.

The year is 1722 – electricity dances across the midnight sky hovering over a majestic tall ship deep within the Caribbean.

Sure enough, strange happenings follow their ship each night as clues are left about whom the Silver Moon Omen is intended for. Only one understands the apocalyptic sign, the same Celtic healer who brought their Captain back to life. Kathryn must gather clues from the ancient Celtic mystics, including a deadly voodoo priest from the Island of Tobago. Captain Phillips and his crew sail from Barbados north, plundering the high seas of the Spanish Main encountering the infamous Calico Jack and his cutthroats.

Is this the end of Kathryn and her Captain? Only the Silver Moon Omen knows for certain.

Emily will need an army of her own if she is to save the world from being taken over by pure evil. But will a small band of Lucent geeks and freaks be enough to send the dark god packing? Amidst chaos and ruin, will love blossom in Emily’s Heart?
