I write award-winning historical romance about pirates, privateers, smugglers and the occasional possum.

A General History of the Robberies and Murders of the Most Notorious Pirates - Captain Charles Johnson This is the book that started it all. Adventure! Swordfights! Pirates! Woodcuts of nekkid ladies! Captain Johnson's book has something for everyone. Is "Charles Johnson" really a pseudonym for Daniel Defoe? No one knows for certain, but most of our pirate tales start here, with this volume that captivated audiences in the 18th Century and hasn't been out of print since.
