Hey #History Lovers – #SpartaCon is Coming to Maryland USA!

August 15-16, 2015 Come and get the full Spartacus Experience!

SpartaCon will be the biggest, most exciting Rebels Convention ever!

Complete with live gladiatorial bouts, artists, exhibits, celebrity guests, Stuntmen and Stunt Coordinators, Crossfit trainers and Legion instructors!

I was addicted to the STARZ original series, SPARTACUS War of the Damned and both following season, Blood and Sand and Gods of the Arena.

I watched this show religiously every Friday night on STARZ until it came to an end in 2013. ūüė¶

Imagine my joy when last week I discovered that SpartaCon 2015, is being held an hour from my home in Waldorf, Maryland?!

I knew I had to be a part of this amazing event, so I rushed to the web site and immediately signed up to volunteer as a celebrity assistant, as well as to advertise the convention anywhere and everywhere.

Check out this guest list!!!

For the Love of Ivory – My Pirate Muse

I wrote this as part of the dedication for my newest and soon to be released novel, DEMONS & PEARLS.
None of this would be possible if not for this wild and free woman from my imagination, Ivory Shepard.

Thank You Ivory

COMING SOON ~ DEMONS & PEARLS (Official Book One in The Razor’s Adventures)

Demons & Pearls
Because I have dubbed myself the quintessential backwards writer, soon and very soon, I will release what I am calling the official book one in The Razor’s Adventures series.

Book two, Jaded Tides, is already in the works and the cover is even done.

Book three is still too far off to call.

The Blue Diamond will also be re-released with a new cover for continuity.

Demons & Pearls is the beginning because well, every pirate has to start somewhere.

My Beautiful Map of Port Royal and Kingston Jamaica

My beautiful map of Port Royal and Kingston Jamaica, for my soon to be new writing room, “Peggy’s Cove.” This map is dated 1772. Of course it isn’t the original but it’s beautiful.

Check out a little history on the tragic Earthquake that destroyed a great deal of Port Royal in 1692.

I chose this web site not only for the story content but because of the wonderful illustrations.

Pirates of the Caribbean – PORT ROYAL EARTHQUAKE

It was calm in Jamaica the morning of June 7, 1692. According to Edmund Heath‚Äôs eyewitness¬†account, “there was no wind stirring” and nothing that made anyone suspicious of the calamity about to befall the island.
