Paradise Island is a fable about a young adventurer who travels to the sunny, fun-filled island of his dreams, but struggles to keep paradise found from becoming paradise lost. This illustrated short story presents a satire on human nature. "Human nature" are two words that are used often, but what exactly do they mean? This work explores, in narrative form, that mysterious collage of traits, emotions, and idiosyncrasies that describes the way we are and the way we behave -- our envy, vanity, greed, and white lies as well as our loyalty, generosity, love, and honor.

Book Description:

Paradise Island is the story of a young adventurer (aka the “Map Maker”) who travels to the sunny, fun-filled island of his dreams, but struggles to keep paradise found from becoming paradise lost. This illustrated novel presents a satire on human nature and lends comical insights into why it is so difficult to hold onto happiness and gain enlightenment. Whatever our version of paradise may be, finding it is one thing, surviving it is another. A product of inspirational and literary fiction, Paradise Island will appeal to readers interested in fantasy, satire, and philosophy in fiction.

From the Publisher:

This illustrated novel is ideally suited to high school or college students studying English literature or philosophy and lends itself to classroom or group discussion. Weaving together fantasy, satire, and philosophy, and using the bar world as a backdrop, Paradise Island explores the topic of human nature and shows the folly in believing that we can control our own human nature.
