The Day the Pirates Went Mad

THE DAY THE PIRATES WENT MAD takes place at the turn of the 18th century and the Golden Age of Piracy is just around the corner. Follow the adventures of eleven-year-old Emma Sharpe as she learns to sail the sea, bonds with her shipmates, and then must save them all from a cursed pirate treasure before it’s too late!

In 1701, orphanage runaway Emma Sharpe changed the direction of her life when she stowed away aboard the New Adventure. A year later, she’s rated an able seaman and is an important part of the crew. Just how important becomes clear during her next voyage to the West Indies when the crew recovers an abandoned pirate treasure. As tempers fray and unusual arguments become more frequent, Emma starts to believe there might really be a curse on the gold they took. With the help of cabin boy Jack Randall, Emma dares to confront the growing threat of violence amongst the formerly close-knit crew. Will they save everyone in time? Can they save themselves?

THE DAY THE PIRATES WENT MAD is an entertaining ‘cozy’ historical fiction that also conveys a ‘boatload’ of learning about the life and times of those sailing the seas 300 years ago, during the Age of Sail. Though intended for ages 10-12, older readers can also enjoy this story and it is suitable for sharing with younger readers when supported by an adult. You know your kids best!

The King and Queen’s Banquet

A Play in Three Acts

In this playful comedy adventure, the King and Queen are hosting a banquet.  But some of their chosen dishes pose a real challenge to the Royal Hunter.  Lion steaks?  Shark and sea turtle soup?  In comparison, getting the rabbit appetizer should be quite easy, right?

Fortunately, the hunter gains the aid of a helpful witch and together they gather what is needed, though not without some difficulties along the way.  However, at the banquet itself, an uninvited guest (that’s right – a dragon!) takes the party on an amusingly dark turn.
