A Note From the Author:
“Vampires and pirates? When I visited the tomb of Mercy Brown, the last alleged vampire in Rhode Island, I stumbled upon lots of interesting history. Colonial Newport was once a haven for pirates like Blackbeard, Thomas Tew and Captain Kidd. Piracy brought much wealth to Newport, and trade in the Caribbean greatly increased its prosperity … So it’s time to sail the seas of history and fiction. Hoist the sails and weigh anchor! Sail on, me hearties! Yo ho!”
