It's 1660 and the Golden Age of Piracy. Scarlett Browning, daughter of Smoker, a smuggling godfather, takes on the Caribbean in the stolen French Country ship she has renamed The Fox. Loyal to her men, an implacable enemy to the Spanish she is a ruthless, merciless Pirate Queen in the image of Anne Bonny, Ching Shih, Mary Read and Anne Dieu-le-Veut. Friends with Henry Morgan and Sir Christopher Mings, she sets out to gain a reputation as fierce as Morgan. A swashbuckling adventure of the high seas; betrayal, revenge, Mayan gold and Spanish treasure. As honest an account of piracy in the 17th century as I could make it so the violence is sometimes extreme and cruel.
BIOGRAPHY I am descendent of a long line of Dorset clay miners and have chased my family tree back to the 16th century in the Isle of Purbeck. I have been a public speaker at conferences for most of my career in the Aerospace and Automotive industries and was one of the founders of a successful games company back in the 1990’s.
Now in my late fifties I finally got around to writing the story I had going around in my head for many years. Thanks to inspiration from the great sea authors like Alexander Kent, Dewey Lambdin, Patrick O’Brian and Dudley Pope I was finally able to put digit to keyboard and start writing the Dorset Boy series.
I make no apologies that I write for myself. The stories emerge as I write and I am often surprised by the twists and turns that they take. My dog, Blaez, appears in the books as he sits by me as I write and it would be unfair to leave him out
