Dothan native Mike Coe released his first novel, “Flight to Paradise” (346 pp., pb, $16.95), in May: “Flight to Paradise”—the first of a trilogy.
(“Flight into Darkness” – 2011; “Flight to Freedom” – 2012)

In “Flight to Paradise”, two hometown hopefuls get a second chance at love… until the unexpected happens. A relationship story with a multitude of twists and turns, and the enduring message: “Love given” is the key to unlocking the desires of the heart.

His editor Harvey Stanbrough, whose work has been nominated for a National Book Award, a Pulitzer Prize, a Pushcart Prize, a Frankfurt Book Fair Award, and the Inscriptions Magazine Engraver's Award, had this to say: “I've told only two unpublished novelists (from well over a hundred novelists and short-story authors) their work was excellent — you are the third. Most importantly, you engaged my emotions, enabling me to be an active participant in the story rather than a passive reader. I commend you on your attention to the craft of writing and your apparently dogged determination to tell a good story.”

Mike and his wife, Sue Marie (Shealy) of Dothan, are high school sweethearts and now live in Southern California. Mike attended Highlands Elementary, Girard Junior High, Dothan High School, Auburn University, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. Mike is a 21-year veteran airline pilot with American Airlines.
