    Summary

    When a foul-mouthed, seditious foreigner turns up at your door, what are the benefits of letting him in?

    So wonders Carr, a young man living in a bayside nation that is troubled by internal battles. In his world, servants fight against masters, tonging watermen fight against dredging watermen, and landsteads eye one another's oyster grounds with greed. It seems to Carr that the only way in which to keep such warfare from entering his own home is to keep very, very quiet about certain aspects of himself which his family would not be able to accept.

    But "trouble" is a word that appears to delight the new visitor. He is ready to stir up danger . . . though he may not be as prepared as he thinks to confront what lies within Carr.

    (Note: This is set in my Toughs universe, and nearly all the characters are my own. However, one of Maculategiraffe's characters has taken a stroll into that universe, with kind permission from Maculategiraffe.)

    Summary

    A ship's pillow boy tries to help a captured freedom fighter and their fates become entwined in a hopeless situation. An epic romance.

    Fry leans into door frame, softening further. Something about this situation is amusing him. “I’ve already told you I don’t explain myself to whores.” The smile on Fry’s face widens, he reaches out and touches Galen’s cheek, with an odd affection.”You really needn’t worry,” he says. “He won’t be there while you’re working. I have another location in mind for him to perform his duties. I’m going to have him lashed to the mast. For the use of all. Even you. You should come up on deck and join us. If you enjoy performing like a man as well as like a slut.” He finishes with a soft pat on Galen’s cheek.

    Summary

    A historical fiction story about a bizarre event that happened aboard pirate ships in the West Indies. Like most of my work, it is inspired by Black Sails, Pirates of the Caribbean, Patrick O'Brian, and The Pirate History Podcast. It describes what was a common event in Europe at the time: forcing men into Navy service through trickery, deceit, or other dishonest means. Feedback is both appreciated and desperately needed!

    Summary

    "Perhaps, when they spoke next, the other young man could tell Simmons of any masters here who were in need of an apprentice who was perilously close to the age of journeymanship."

    Simmons has been waiting all his life for the day when he would come of age and pledge his service to a liege-master. But at the last minute, all his plans go awry; he is left in the awful position of having to find a liege-master quickly. Desperation may force Simmons to pick the worst of liege-masters.

    Working at his uncle's waterfront store on a bay island, Simmons seeks a way out of his dilemma. Then another young man walks through the door, one whose problems may be even worse than Simmons's. . . .

    Summary

    Chichester, 1837. Rear-Admiral Horatio Hornblower sat at his desk on a cold winter night, engrossed in the production of his memoirs... It amused him to think that they might be discovered in a hundred years or so and published then: surely as a work of fiction, for his exploits, when set down on paper, sounded far too extraordinary to be credible.
