DW Davis

Author DW Davisabout this book: The Boy from Buzby Beach was inspired by the time I spent at the Majik Beanz coffee shop in Carolina Beach, North Carolina. During my visits to the Majik Beanz I got to know the owner and many of the other year-round residents of the island, and knew there was a story to be told.

The idea for the names of several of the main characters came from my wife. She suggested that my next book include characters named for our family pets. Jacques, Ginger, Scout, and Joe all got their names that way.

Focusing on the teens flowed naturally from my desire to write for a younger audience; to make The Boy from Buzby Beach a book my own middle grades students could read. That's how the book came to be a story about Jacques, the fifteen-year-old son of a single mom, a mom who owns and operates the only coffee shop on Buzby Island.


• "I was drawn into the story and the lives of all the characters. I felt like I knew exactly what the shops looked like. It is all so real to me." — Elisabeth M.

• "The author has a gentle style that takes his reader into the lives of his characters. This story captured my attention from the first beautifully poetic paragraph." — Brenda P.
