Brain Boosters for Writers!


, , , , , , , , ,

I’ve been doing a lot of pondering lately about my life and how much time I spend at the computer or writing in one of my book bibles. So many stories to write, so little time seems to be my mantra these days. Black Sails just ended. (Major bummer! Shout out #BlkSailsBrethren!) Outlander is back on. (Yeeaauuss!) I’ve discovered the new Daredevil series on Netflix. (OMG!!! So addictive!) I’ve got several DVDs on sailing ships, the Captain Horatio Hornblower Series with Ioan Gruffald (Swoon!) and several others to watch. Bitten is back!!! (Love Clay!) Penny Dreadful is returning. (Who doesn’t want to find out more about Josh Hartnet’s character?) And of course, there are several great shows I like to watch on t.v. It’s so hard to stay focused, especially with so many media outlets vying to capture my attention online and off. I love it all!

One of my favourite tropes is an adventure at sea. I know that modern day pirates are horrible and scary, but there is something about being on the highseas in the previous centuries that makes for a great book.


The seas have always been great fodder for stories. Master and Commander and Robinson Crusoe are vintage stories at sea. Modern day fascination has given us Black Sails and The Pirates of the Caribbean series and show our continued interest in this genre. I remember going on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney World as a child and wondering what it would be like to travel by a large ship to a hidden Caribbean getaway. When I started reading historical romance books, one of my favourite genres became the time spent aboard a ship.

After visiting the USS Constitution this summer in Boston, quite a few of my romantic…

Lady Katherine and me would be thankin’ author Morgan O’Neill for givin’ me the opportunity to parlay with ol’ Bess on ye ol’ abode. Been a pleasure!

Until next time… may the odds be ever in your favor,

Cap’n Jack Sparrow

Jack Interviews Romance Author Morgan O’Neill!


, , , , , , , , ,

Captain Jack Sparrow 5Avast, me hearties! Jack is back and with royalty too. Aye, he’s interviewing Katherine’s good friends, romance authors Cary Morgan Frates and Deborah O’Neill Cordes (writing as Morgan O’Neill) who have graciously decided to defer their part of this interview to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth I, who plays a pivotal role in their story The Thornless Rose, An Elizabethan Time Travel Novel.

Queen ElizabethJack’s eyes grow big as emperial crowns as he covets Queen Elizabeth’s rich attire and smartly accented jewels. “‛Tis a pleasure to have you aboard ship, to be sure, Ladies Cary and Deborah. Her Majesty and me have a mutual love and respect for treasure so I believe we shall get along famously.” Reaches forward and grabs Her Majesty’s right hand to ogle her huge sapphire ring. “Yes, I do.”

Congratulations to my Release Day Winner!!!


, , , , ,

Fireworks 5Ahoy, me hearties, I’m here to congratulate the winner of me Release Day post for The Rogue’s Prize. First, apologizes ARRR in order for not getting the announcement posted earlier as planned. With the holidays on the way, there is ever so much to do and I got broadsided by tasks I hadn’t realized would arise. But never you fear, Cap’n is here with a winning name!

Raise the signal flag to the mizzen and break out the rum! Our winning crew member is Pearl Midshipman Mackerel Kneebone set on Revenge, otherwise known as Marcy X!!! You’ve won a $20 PIRATE 101 Game card worth 2 months of pillagin’ and plunderin’. Huzzah!!!

I’ll be contacting ye via email, Lady Marcy, or should I say Mackerel. Look for your winnings there! Woot!!!

Thank ye all for your support!



Release Day! The Rogue’s Prize Available Now! Let’s Partay!!!

TheRoguesPrize453x680Shoutin’ from the top of the mizzen, me hearties! Sails on the horizon! It’s Release Day for THE ROGUE’S PRIZE! Huzzah and Hoorah!!! Can you tell I’m totally jazzed? Only slightly? Od’s Blood, but I need to put a bit more muscle into this. LOL!

Like Captain Henry Guffald and Lady Adele Seaton roving the sea in the Dragon, THE ROGUE’S PRIZE has certainly taken a wild journey to re-publication. Rogue has always been one of my favorite books. Why? Well, Adele is THE pirate I always wanted to be, free of social constraints in the Regency Era AND treated like an equal to the hero of her dreams! She’s unafraid to go after what she wants, sometimes even equipped for the risks, other times not, but she’s always willin’ to take chances on achieving her goals for kith and kin with oftentimes riotous results. Just ask all six of her brothers! They’ll tell ye the truth of it. (Pirates!)
