Just a quick blog to introduce you to the two main characters of my current work in progress!
It’s a pity I can’t draw their pictures for you:(
Mrs Catherine Meadows
Catherine, or ‘Cat’, is the headstrong, rebellious daughter of the local Lord of the Manor, who decided to elope with her best friend in order to escape her father’s tyrannical household. Since then she has become the head of the smuggling ring working from her young husband’s inn, ‘The Swan’.
Willing to do anything to get what she wants, the young Mrs Meadows sees herself, not justas one of the lads but as their ringleader. But then one morning shots ring out across the beach killing half her crew and the fun of smuggling becomes a fight for survival.
Lady Lillian Exquemelin (Ess-quem-ell-een)
Lillian Exquemelin is the daughter of an English Privateer and the Granddaughter of a Dutch Pirate. Having always sought to make a better life, ultimately it is her relations who let her down when she inherits mounds of her father’s debt.
Desperate and destitute the brave Lady Lily finds herself with the one thing that could change her fortune; a map to her father’s hidden gold.
Armed with no more than their wits these two women set about finding their fortunes but don’t count on finding each other!
