The Privateersman: First published in 2013. Dorset lad Tom Andrews escapes the hangman’s noose only to find himself shanghaied onto a Caribbean-bound privateering ship, before he and crewmate Joseph, flee to America carrying illicit booty. They prosper in the vile corruptness of New York - a town destined to be on the losing side in the Revolutionary War. Betrayed and forced to return to England, they seek riches in the early industrial boom. Tom relishes wealth, but also secretly yearns for love and social acceptance. His hopes rise on meeting the beautiful daughter of an impoverished aristocrat. "This may be the first book I have read non-stop since 1985." - Online review (Average web-wide review rating: 4.5 stars out of 5)

MY EBOOKS (Available in all major online stores) A POOR MAN AT THE GATE SERIES Book One: The Privateersman (free ebook) Book Two: Nouveau Riche (99cents) Book Three: Born To Privilege Book Four: The Pain Of Privilege Book Five: Privilege Preserved Book Six: Illusions Of Change Book Seven: Coming soon! THE DUTY AND DESTINY SERIES Book One: The Friendly Sea Book Two: The Bitter Land Book Three: The Fuzzy-Wuzzy Man Book Four: Britannia's Son I graduated from university in 1968 with a degree in Politics, Economics and Economic History, taught Economics and Economic History for ten years, including a spell in Papua New Guinea, got bored and returned to PNG as a trainer and operational police officer. I remained there with my family, still keeping up my interest in Economic History - including Australasia - then worked contracts in the Middle East until my wife's ill-health and eventual death meant setting up a family base in the UK. History, and collecting Victorian glass, my sole hobbies, apart from looking after three St Bernards. Published in late 2013, The Privateersman was my first published novel. Since then I have written several more books in this series with more planned for publication. The Duty and Destiny Series of books were written earlier, but because of the big interest in the, ‘A Poor Man at the Gate Series,’ my publisher urged me to revise the series for publication. As long as people continue to read my books, I will continue to write about history - a subject close to my heart.
