Beginning at a young age, his parent's advice was "Live life to the fullest, follow your dreams, shoot for the stars, and never give up." By following that advice, his life became an extraordinary adventure. Doors opened to a mind-boggling banquet, and he feasted. Never content just reading about it, or hearing about it, he developed a zest for living life — seeing it, experiencing it.
As a kid, Dusty barely made it through high school because of ADD. Then, against all odds, became a syndicated newspaper columnist at age 20, a weekly magazine editor of Ohio's largest evening newspaper at age 24, was a local TV personality at age 25, and after eight years had syndicated TV segments that ran nationally for two seasons. He also founded and ran five successful businesses (one international), had nine creative living books published, traveled the world, and retired to Costa Rica, building three ocean front houses.
His interesting life also led to his being investigated by the Secret Service for counterfeiting; detained for a three-hour interrogation at a foreign airport; investigated by the FBI, CIA, and other agencies. He had his phones tapped numerous times and was under 24/7 surveillance in a foreign country. He also lost his high six-figure life savings overnight. Dusty will share these experiences plus much more — some humorous, some not so humorous, others unbelievable — in a book entitled My Extraordinary Life, Living Outside the Box due to be published in 2017.
In the meantime, he is writing short narratives, such as My Costa Rican Nightmares, part of a five-book collection. His first book, Lost in a Bat Cave, will be offered free November 14 through the 18th in Amazon's Kindle store. For a limited time, eBook 2: Kidnapped in Paradise, is being offered free.

I hope you will make yourself at home here. My name is Dusty Pilot, and presently I am writing my second book in the My Costa Rican Nightmares four-book collection of short stories entitled Kidnapped in Paradise, due to be published in September of this year.
Book I in the collection, Trapped In The Damas Cave - Costa Rica, Terror Beneath The Rainforest, is now available at all major online bookstores, as well as from this site on the BOOKS page, where you will also find a link to excerpts.
