What makes Bartholomew Roberts, an ordinary seaman who had once served in His Majesty's navy, turn pirate or 'go on the account'? In six weeks he’s the captain of a drunken, bloodthirsty crew. Black Bart Roberts, notorious throughout the Caribbean and the West African coast, decimates British trade. Pulling off one daring stunt after another, he wins and loses a large fortune in gold and jewels and wins and loses Portuguese beauty Lucia. Something has to be done about him, and the Admiralty sends out Captain Chaloner Ogle to apprehend him. GENTLEMAN OF FORTUNE Swashbuckling adventure based on the TRUE story of Bartholomew Roberts and his crew.About the Author:
From the moment I saw Errol Flynn swashing his bucklers across the television screen I was hooked on history. I'd been writing since I could hold a pencil, but now I wanted to write about real men and women, about their lives, their stories, what made them tick. GENTLEMAN OF FORTUNE is my first novel about the exploits of Pirate Bartholomew Roberts. ONE SMALL CANDLE is a very different book, also fiction, about the Pilgrim Fathers and their epic voyage to America on the Mayflower. And coming soon, hopefully in the Spring 2014, is my latest book FOR THE KING the story of a provincial family during the English Civil war. I live in rural Norfolk, England with my husband of 43 years.
