The Lost Crew

“The vacation may be over, but
the adventure is just beginning.”

Just yesterday 13-year-old Rachel was thrust back in time to the year 1616. Lost in a strange era, she befriended a ship of pirates and fulfilled the myth of the Pirate Bride before returning to 2010. Happy to be reunited with her family, she is now worried that she does not know what happened to her newly found pirate friends.

Follow Rachel as she searches the vacation island for clues about the fate of the pirates Reginald, Armand and Cookie, all while babysitting her zombie-obsessed 10-year-old brother, Steven.

The Lost Crew is the exciting sequel to the Award Winning first-time novel The Pirate Bride by Ryan & Anna McKinley (2011 Readers Favorite Gold Medal; 2010 Foreword Review Book of the Year Award Finalist). Beautifully illustrated by artist Jerry Bennett, readers will laugh and cringe at the efforts Rachel must take to find her Lost Crew.

Amazing Illustrators!

As an independent author, I am always on the lookout for new talent with which to collaborate on future projects. This past weekend at Tokyo In Tulsa (an anime convention in Oklahoma), I encountered several talented artists with a unique perspective and technique. Check them out at my blog: The-Creative-Spark
