I'm excited to announce my book, Atlantic Piracy in the early 19th Century: the story of the pirates and survivors of the Morning Star is available from Amazon and Booktopia for 11 March 2022.
The book deconstructs the story of the Spanish pirate, Benito de Soto and his attack on the British brig Morning Star. It places these events in the context of piracy in the Atlantic Ocean in the early 19th Century. Within its pages, you'll find stories of little-known pirates of Cuba, brave women, plucky survivors, villainous pirates, buried treasure and even a few severed heads!
