Author Derek E. Keeling’s upcoming novel, Nomad’s Island, is loosely based on a trip the author took to Hawaii in 2007. Keeling’s goal was to live in the jungle, survive off the land, and hunt wild boars. Unfortunately, the trip ended due to extenuating factors. Keeling’s novel is based on the idea of someone wanting to survive alone in a controlled environment, only to be forced to survive without a safety net. The novel takes a sharp turn when the main character learns that he’s not alone.
Nomad’s Island has action, adventure, mystery, suspense, horror, and even romance. Keeling’s novel will keep readers palms sweating as they uncover the truth about Nomad’s Island. Sometimes, however, the truth can be difficult to accept. Nomad’s Island will be released on March 2, 2019.
“I’m very proud of how this story turned out. Unfortunately for the reader, they’ll never expect the way this one unfolds. Just when they think they have it figured out, the knife will twist a little deeper in their mind.” – Derek E. Keeling.
