The War of Spanish Succession is over, many sailors are out of work, and the thriving American colonies are quickly becoming the place of opportunity. For Sam Bellamy, it was the opportunity of becoming the captain of his own ship.

When he falls in love with a rebellious New England debutante, he finds out very quickly that he needs more than a dream to win over her socialite parents. After a failed treasure salvaging expedition, Sam makes one last desperate attempt to change his economic standing, and unwittingly becomes the Captain of the Pirate ship ‘Mary Anne’.

As a self proclaimed “Free Prince” Sam wages war on greedy merchantmen, slave traders, and Mother Nature, in a bid not only for the love of his life, but for life itself.

As a fiction author who gets bored rather quickly, I bounce around several different genres. Basically I fall in love with a character, setting, or idea, and I go for it. When I get to the point where my hands lie frigidly still on my keyboard, I change it up and write in one of my other stories. That way I don't get anything done. It's perfect.I come from a large family, I have four brothers and nine sisters. It's not a typo I have nine sisters! By shear force of numbers I was made to watch shows like Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, and Anne of Green Gables. I suppose if you were looking for a reason I'm attracted to stories with romantic elements, that would be it. Growing up with nine sisters, and being the only male member of an amazing writing group I've learned many things, most of which I can't tell you. But what I can say is that women make men better human beings, and I feel fortunate to know so many good ones.
