Overview

Two pirates; sworn enemies. An alliance forged by blood...Jack Mallory sailed into Carolina waters seeking vengeance upon fellow pirate James Logan, the man responsible for his father's murder and his mother's kidnapping. But Jack never expected his well-laid plans to be foiled by a mere child: Logan's precocious six-year-old daughter, Helen. A deathbed promise to her mother inexorably binds Jack to the child and robs him, at least temporarily, of his revenge against her father.But the two pirates' tenuous truce will be tested when a mysterious privateer sets sail to end Logan's devastation of Carolina's lucrative sea trade. Will Jack choose to save Helen's father or will he ally with the privateer to at last see justice served for Logan's crimes against his own parents?

About the Author

When Susan Keogh won an elementary school writing contest and a trip to a regional young writers conference, she hadn't realized that experience was the beginning of a love affair with words. Keogh was raised in a large family where reading was encouraged. Through her mother's interest in history, Keogh grew to admire such authors as Michael Shaara and Bruce Catton, a fellow Michigan writer who focused on the American Civil War. So it was no wonder that her first writing credit was a featured article in the magazine America's Civil War. Keogh's particular interest in the Civil War led her into re-enacting for several years as a field musician.

Keogh's most recent time period of historical interest is early colonial America and the age of piracy. She is crafting a series of novels that center around the adventures of Jack Mallory, a young Englishmen who is both pirate and eventually the patriarch of a large rice plantation in the colonial province of Carolina.

Outside of her writing life, Keogh works in the health care field and enjoys travel (preferably to warm places outside of her native Michigan!), the arts, and equestrian activities.
