This is an invitation to travel around the world with Morgan Blake and Livy Tinsley in search of truth and love…
The Tradewinds is a timeless tale of two writers coming-of-age. While it’s set in the late 70s, The Tradewinds is as universal in it’s message as Homer’s “Odyssey.”
Enriched with allusions to literary and rock ‘n roll classics, readers of The Tradewinds will see Morgan and Livy moving from being innocent 17-year-olds to becoming fully realized adults and, like America, anxiously redefining the ideas of “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
Yearning to find a greater sense of peace and freedom, authentic love and his own voice as a writer, Morgan sets off on an odyssey, both internal and external.
Olivia Tinsley, a poor girl from East London is determined to raise herself from poverty and become a successful, self-reliant, and outspoken writer. Her journey includes meetings with hippies in Spain, U2 in Ireland and feminists in the extreme.
