Thomas H. Ward

Author Thomas H. Wardabout this book: TOCABAGA is a real location but it is not the real name. It's actually an island where I have lived for the last 30 years, in Florida. I came up with the title because it was the name of the Indians that once lived here.

This book and the series is about what could happen in the future to our country. It is a chronicle of one man named Jack Gunn. A fair but ruthless man, loyal to his family, friends, and the Constitution of the United States. He and the others on the island battle the forces of evil who are trying to take what little they have left.


Excerpt from Book 1

It is so quiet here, so quiet I can hear the birds singing. You can hear the flutter of their wings and the wind blowing through the trees. There are no cars or noisy motors, no road noise at all. Every now and then you may hear a military plane fly overhead, but not often.

It wasn't always like this. In the old days 5,000 cars would pass by my house on a holiday weekend going to the beach. The cars were loaded with people, grills, coolers, bikes, and boats. The peak time was the 4th of July weekend. Cars were bumper to bumper. Independence Day, what a great time we used to have going to the beach and watching the annual fireworks.

We used to have a 4th of July Parade. Everyone decorated their cars with red, white, and blue paper streamers along with the two fire trucks our city had. People were beeping their horns and waving American flags. We acted a little like hicks, but it was fun for everyone.

We still celebrate July 4th but there's no parade and no hot dogs. The holiday means more to us now than it did a couple of years ago. Now we are fighting to keep our freedom and Constitutional rights. Now we are fighting just to stay alive.

One thing we do hear are the sounds of drones flying overhead at night. They're like a buzzing bee, a low tone which you can barely discern. No one has ever seen a drone, we only hear them flying at night like bats. Drones have excellent night vision cameras and can identify any person. The drones make everyone a little concerned. We know the government is watching us, but why are they watching us?

Does someone think we are a threat to the country?

We are waiting for you to contact us by email to find where Tocabaga is located. There is an email address hidden within these chronicles.

I will reply.

I am Jack Gunn (aka Tocabaga Jack), and these are my Chronicles.
