Although 'Britannia ruled the waves' in the 19th century, Jean Lafitte's pyrates and the ruthless Cuban sea rovers took their toll on British commerce in the Gulf of Mexico and among the Leeward Islands in the Carribean Sea. It was the First Lord of the Admiralty who conceived a plan to counteract the pyrate menace. The Royal Navy revamped a captured frigate, assigned one of its most aggressive post captains and battle-tested crews to her. She was commissioned Excalibur, her captain ordered to be as ruthless as the pyrates he sought. Excalibur allows the reader to share a brief period in the life of Post Captain Arthur Allen; to meet his family at Allen Manor; share a few private moments with Arthur and his fiancée, Cassandra; stand beside him on a rolling deck in raging storms and while combating pyrates; and to share his unnerving experiences involving the paranormal on land and sea. Take a brief look at 19th century England, then come on board Excalibur for a voyage of realistic adventure based on factual accounts.

The Search for the Stone of Excalibur grew from Book One. I am a huge King Arthur fan and having travelled all over Scotland, visiting castles, I decided that Britain would be the location of the boys' quest for the Second Stone of Power. The legends and stories about King Arthur and Excalibur are the perfect vehicle for this book. There is so much magic and mystery surrounding this historical figure that I had enough material to craft a fascinating adventure. If you love history, geography, action, adventure, archaeology and a story that grips you from page one (plus lots of danger!) then this is the book for you. This will also appeal to anyone who wants to save the world or (for those readers a little older) remembers their plans to do so!
