About Mangrove Bayou

Mangrove Bayou is a small gulfcoast Florida town located someplace south of Naples and east of the Moon and in the midst of the Ten Thousand Islands / Everglades National Park region..

Troy Adam is police chief and head of a small department. For such a small and remote town, Mangrove Bayou seems to be a hotbed of crime, both major and trivial. Troy and his small band of officers deal with it all, assisted or hindered by a collection of residents who redefine the term character.

Stephen Morrill writes about Mangrove Bayou in a series of police procedural mystery novels with a twist, as the Mangrove Bayou police force is small and the location remote. The books combine humor, weird characters, occasional social commentary, and serious police work, all taking place in a unique setting.

Late Start on MB7: Late getting to this. I'm starting on Mangrove Bayou #7. No title yet. It will come to me. Did the outline last week. I write from very detailed outlines. This one will involve police chief Troy Adam, mayor Lester Groud, Troy's girlfriend Lee Bell, Haitian refugees, and a boatload of Bad Hombres — all chasing one another down in the Everglades. Life is never dull in Mangrove Bayou.

Just to break up the day, I also have to complete the fourth book in the Sorcet Chronicles fantasy series. I’m teaching a course in query letter writing. I’m working on getting all my books up as ebooks. And it’s hard to look after the yard when it never stops raining.
