SPIRIT SEEKER A NOVEL by Jamie Haden
Spend the morning with Miguel Locklear and Dakota Revels. Characters from Spirit Seeker and musicians in Silence Island’s favorite reggae band The Dread Heads. Music follows the boys wherever they go. They have laid back attitudes and a divine understanding of movements of all kinds. Bob Marley himself would be pleased that his two faithful followers can shape-shift in and out of form while still humming The Redemption Song.
Visit them and listen to what inspires their music:

He spends most of his time helping his parents at the diner or hanging out with friends. Miguel is the most popular kid at St. Elmo and started the island’s favorite reggae band The Dread Heads.

His mother is the islands only midwife, and his dad is a master totem carver, known worldwide for his very special skills. Dakota plays bongos in The Dread Heads and spends most of his free time helping his father around his shop making hand-carved bow and arrows. With razor sharp instincts, Dakota knows everything there is to know about spirits. Everything. And then some. Dakota physique is flawless. He is gorgeous with long black hair and deep dark eyes. His chest is tattooed by lines that weave together to symbolize he is filled with the spirit. Simply put, the markings are an artistic wonder in green and black ink. Dakota has a wild animal magnetism that drives all the girls wild. However, he only has eyes for one girl, his best friend girlfriend Talisa Santiago.
Talisa Santiago is The Spirit Seeker.
