Meet The Author
Captain Mark T. "Reef" Perkins is a marine surveyor with a colorful past. From commanding a 150-foot 300 DWT US Army diving ship off Vietnam to smuggling in the Caribbean, Reef Perkins has become a living legend. A graduate of both the US Army Engineer Officer Candidate School and the US Navy Salvage Officers School, he’s a man comfortable in or out of the water. Raised in rural Michigan, Reef now lives in Key West where he can get his feet wet.
It is knowing that out there somewhere, in the quiet night, a reader will apply sacred oils, inhale deeply and say, "Well, fuck it. I paid for it, guess I might as well keep reading." Plus, being classified as a "writer" allows me the "Old school tie, don’t you know," type of freedom to criticize other writers with impunity.
