Sir Duncan de Ware is a sworn champion of the common man and a master of disguise. So when he finds plucky maiden-in-distress Linet de Montfort facing off against a notorious pirate, noble Duncan goes undercover to come to her rescue, despite her insistence that she can take care of herself. When the pirate abducts her, Duncan and Linet are caught up in a breathless adventure of danger and romance on the high seas. And soon Linet realizes her only hope is to trust her mysterious hero—with her life and her heart.
A young boy is nearly burned alive in a church as steel-wielding English troops assault his town. Within these pages is the story of Thomas Ashcroft, who grows up trying to be noble, but cannot shake the trauma he endured.
The man responsible for the harm done to him, Admiral Constantyne, feels the wrath strike back in the way of a kidnapped daughter and a torched home. Now, all is sacrificed, fury kindled, and great seas crossed. This aging master of the sea now lives only to bring his daughter back and to drain the life out of Thomas.
Always on the edge of annihilation, you will be taken along with this pseudo-hero through numerous adventures that will cause you to doubt him at times, though likely you will also be struck by him, as his companions are. Either his ability to overcome the most hopeless of obstacles is due to miracles as he claims, or is the greatest series of coincidences championed by a lunatic.
Genres: Historical fiction (Renaissance), metafiction, action-adventure, social criticism
Join Thomas on his search for peace in a corrupt world and consider the parallels in our own time. Consider how conquerors pillage the livelihood of people, and thus create the need for crime and violence across the globe.

Two Detectives. One Murder. No Clue.
The first in the Rex & Eddie Mysteries series, Catchee Monkey is a comedy-mystery — or daft noir — that lovingly mashes the pulp detective novel with a British twist.
When Eddie is persuaded to start a detective agency with his friend Rex, he hopes to set up a respectable business, while Rex sees it as a chance to play out his noir fantasies.
The inexperienced sleuths stumble upon a murder mystery that puts them head-to-head with gangsters, assassins, and corrupt coppers. Outnumbered, outgunned and outwitted, they have to solve their case before it kills them, or before they end up killing each other.
Targeted Age Group: 13 and up
