And so he did, with "Teenagers on an Adventure," hitting bookshelves this past February.

Saunders, a Florida resident for the past 25 years, said his book could be considered a love letter to Florida through his imagery — it is where the story starts after all.

Saunders' writing process is all about having fun, whether it's writing down a daydream or reminiscing fond memories.

"When you get old, you daydream. And if you're a writer like me, you write it down," he said. "I've had fun remembering all of the things I've done."

The novel's demographic is primarily young readers, but Saunders said any adventurer, or adventurer at heart, can enjoy this book.

"It's pure entertainment," he said.

Saunders said he takes pleasure in retirement and getting to do the things he's always wanted to do — like writing.
