It's My Turn to Be the Hero: The Escapades of Three Tropical Baby-Boomers (Volume 1)

"As this is his premiere edition to chronicle the shenanigans of Tom, Dick, and Larry who have come upon referring to themselves as 'The Tropical Three Musketeers', I encourage you to be on the lookout for Etienne's subsequent novels about The Tropical Three Musketeers."

"For baby-boomer readers, Etienne shares bonus nostalgic titles of cowboy movies & songs, and cliff-hanger series." - Joesph Lilli, author and freelance writer

In summary, It's My Turn to Be the Hero: The Escapade of Three Tropical Baby-boomer is the premiere of a series he plans to offer.

This edition is about a retired teacher, with plenty of retirement time on her hands, who wanders back to her early days of teaching at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands when it came to Tom, Dick, and Larry, rambunctious 3 musketeers-students in her third-, fourth-, and fifth-grade classes.

Here is a snippet:

Sitting here in my home on the island of St. Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands with plenty of retirement time on my hands, my mind keeps wandering back to my early teaching days at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School here on St. Thomas. But, I especially can't help thinking about Tom, Dick, and Larry, those rambunctious three musketeers-students of my third-, fourth-, and fifth-grade classes. I think they called themselves "The Crusaders", or maybe even "The Great Crusaders", because they considered themselves imaginary crime-fighters. Pretending to be their Saturday matinee heroes, they wanted to be just like them in every way, but mainly they wanted to rid the world (at least their imaginary, pretend world) of evildoers.

I did not know much about their childhood escapades until years later after they were all grown and I had retired and moved into, by coincidence, the current neighborhood of their parents. After getting to know them and becoming good friends with them, we decided to meet biweekly for maubi and pick-up salt fish, or bush tea with patés, dumb bread, or Johnny cakes.
