Synopsis

There are times in life when you suddenly begin to rethink your choices. For children's book author Davis Garner, such a moment comes when he finds himself hiding in a pile of dirty laundry, trying to avoid his landlord. . .

Desperate times lead to desperate measures, and so Davis signs on to be a technical writer on a research vessel in Antarctica. What Davis knows about marine technology would comfortably fit in a tweet, but he soon realizes that no one around him is quite who they seem--including Maureen, an ice-cold network administrator partial to hacking others' emails; a lovelorn vessel technician known by the acronym Worm; and Artaud, a charismatic scientist with dubious motives. In between waves of seasickness and self-doubt, Davis finds creative inspiration and an unlikely passion for his new job. And something more unexpected still. . .the willingness to fight for the principles he believes in and the life he still loves.

Praise for the novels of Chris Kenry

"Kenry's masterful use of a disarmingly forthright first-person viewpoint invites readers' trust and keeps them turning the pages right up to the surprise ending." --Booklist on Confessions of a Casanova

"The great leap to more substantial literary terrain feels but a book or two away for this talented author." --Publishers Weekly on Uncle Max

"Well written with bold humor and witty asides." --Library Journal on Can't Buy Me Love

The Survival Methods and Mating Rituals of Men and Marine Mammals is Chris Kenry's fourth novel. Much to his surprise, two of his novels have inexplicably been translated into Polish. He currently resides and writes in Colorado.
