The way that I see myself is that I am a modern writer with an old-fashioned feel within my written words. Considering the techniques of classic swashbuckling writers of the recent past, I combine proven enthusiastic literature with experimental modern ideas, and mesh them together to create my own unique style. So, if one were to imagine the dexterity of The Three Musketeers, the derring-do of Robin Hood, the chivalry of Ivanhoe, the valor of King Arthur, and sometimes the comic intrigues of Bob Hope, then one will have a good idea of what my writing techniques are all about!
Captain Skull: From the Memoirs of Sir Charles of Rileyby Ted Anthony Roberts
The memories of young Charles, and of his adventures upon the waters of the Caribbean and Spanish Main, where he meets and joins with the legendary Captain Skull. But, before his adventure even begins onboard the Skull Ship, he manages to fall madly in love with Lady Rebecca Armstrong, an aristocratic beauty on the tropical island of Jamaica. However, and after learning that she was actually married to the man who had become his sworn and bitter enemy, young Charles (who had changed his name to Sir Charles of Riley, in trying to appear better born than he was) hopes that an adventurous life upon the open sea ~ with a band of Pirate gentlemen ~ will help him to forget that dear lady . . . that is, until he accidently bumps into her again, only a year later, in England. Having last seen her in a very bad way (that is, with lying to, and of stealing from her and her husband), Charles begins to realize that he may have made some terrible mistakes in the recent past, and he begins to wonder if she will ever forgive him!
Captain Skull, from the Memoirs of Sir Charles of Riley, is packed with Swashbuckling Adventure, Exciting Swordplay, Breathtaking Tropical Locations, Occasional Lighthearted Comedy, Intense Drama, and Romance!
