Two parallel series



A historical fiction and magical realism series that features an array of intercultural and compelling characters—from the surgeon protagonist to women pirates and Hawaiian magicians—that meet in a sizzling, historical context. If you like exotic locales, cringe-worthy explorations of early 19th-century medicine, and engaging, subtle fantasy, then you’ll love this page-turning new series.

This historical fiction series features the compelling Jean Laffite à la James bond, the fierce woman pirate Jebel Medusa and local antagonists that meet in the sizzling historical context of the Golden Age of Piracy. If you like a pirate merger of Sherlock Holmes and Robin Hood, then you’ll love this page-turning new series.
