swimmers in the sea

Denzil Strickland is a former boss from one of the many agencies where we've worked. Fortunately for us, he is also our friend. Denzil is an amazing writer, both in the copywriting sense (you should see his list of One Show awards and CA features) and in the creative sense. He crafts like it's nobody's business. I had the honor to read one of the first drafts of his newly published novel. It is a gripping story, redemptive in all of the right ways. His portrayal of gritty New Orleans and the South is spot-on and puts him into a category of authors for whom anthologies are put together.

You can read an except from the book here. And you can buy Swimmers in the Sea here.
