A boy gets caught in the devious plans of adults - he is falsely accused - and, maybe, finds one person to trust. Literature for kids.
Telling the truth isn't always enough.
I am a first-time author bringing an amusing, literate voice to middle-grade fiction. I treat my readers as I find them: dauntless, and deserving respect. And don't try to fool them. They're too smart.
I am raising money to arrange review and publication of Sombar the Pirate, now in final manuscript.
Check out the video -- that's me reading Chapter 1.
Sombar the Pirate
The problem with Stanley Prison is that it's empty.
Constable Bragg needs a prisoner—for a day, or maybe two—just to show that he's doing his job. He sends his half-witted jailer outside to find himself a criminal. There's a boy that lives down by the docks, minding his own business, until the jailer cries, "Thief!" If a frightened boy takes a rowboat, does that make him a pirate?
The jailer thinks it does.
A real pirate would know better. A real pirate would go on a rampage as fast as he could, plotting to lay blame on the innocent boy. But what does that matter?
There hasn't been a pirate in a hundred years.
