“The steady stream of hilarious stories in Hooked will keep the reader turning pages in anticipation of the next adventure. The characters Jim introduces are larger than life; the frolicking Tennessee boat Captain, the Sailboat bum, the pirates of the Norfolk docks all add to the crazy quilt of Jim’s life on the water. And of course there is a steady stream of beautiful ladies depositing souvenirs in his ‘tip jar’.”
-Playwrite and Author Mark Covington
“Boy, did I find a fun read! Jim Baugh is a modern day mix of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. The cast of characters reads like a comedy. From being caught skinny dipping by the 100 passenger Okracoke Ferry (while trying to pull a splinter out of his girlfriend’s butt), to beings surprised on a first date by his “older woman” date, who was decked out in BDSM gear, Jim kept me laughing. “
-Author Dave Diamantes
“From his childhood growing up in Gloucester , to married life, producing an outdoors television show, divorce, travels and middle-aged Internet dating, Baugh has either done it or seen it. His funny and often risqué stories are the kind of tales many can relate to.
- Lee Toliver , Virginia Pilot Newspaper
“An uproarious novel based (and not so loosely) on his life. “Hooked” (326 pages, Solstice Publishing, $19.99) relates the adventures and misadventures that occur during the filming of an outdoors show, as well as in computer dating.
Jay Stafford, Richmond Times Dispatch
“The life is everything one dreams – only crazier. Jim Baugh’s account of the boat world – and of the men and women attracted to it – reads like a guidebook to a parallel universe. As a former Floridian, I was aware of some of this craziness, but not what it meant to be carried along in the stream 24/7.
-Author Joe Jackson, Five time Pulitzer Prize Nominee
