Tortuga Bay has earned multiple awards, including a first place win in Historical Fiction in the Royal Palm Literary awards, two gold medals the President's Award of the Florida Authors and Publishers Association, and a 2016 Eric Hoffer Book Award Finalist.
Viceroy Rodriguez orders a squadron of his best pirates hunters after Isabella and Jean-Michel, determined to rid the Caribbean of his pirate nemesis. The determined Captain Munoz chases The Pirate of Panther Bay and her crew into Port-au-Prince, Haiti, where they sit in blockade to prevent their escape.
On land, Isabella finds herself in the midst of a bubbling revolution among Port-au-Prince's free blacks in the tense years leading up to the western hemisphere's only successful slave revolt. Will she join the revolution and free her sisters and brethren? Or will she stay committed Jean-Michel and her piratical ways?
Calusa Spirits arrives in 2018! Isabella, Jean-Michel, and Juan Carlos continue their journey, chased around Cuba and up the West Coast of Florida. Along the way, they encounter a lost tribe of fierce Calusa Indians deep in the Everglades of South Florida.
What do you do when you are confronted with unfathomable and brutal injustice? Fight back!
That's what Isabella does after a harrowing escape from the plantation she called home since birth as slave in Hispaniola. Follow her as she turns the tables on her former colonial masters, plundering their merchant ships to fund her own personal rebellion with Jean-Michel, her trusted quartermaster in this award winning series.
Allow yourself to get swept up in the passion and action of this "swashbuckling tale of piracy, action, and romance" with "plenty of zip in the action sequences" and "conspiracies and colorful characters galore".
