A NEW BUCCANNERS ADVENTURE

When an author like me gets a review that says, “I can’t wait to read the next one,” it’s a siren call that cannot be ignored. You start to think about the other adventures your beloved Buccaneers will share with your readers. The Buccaneers of St. Frederick Island Living on a remote island and attending a school, housed in an old pirate’s castle is the backdrop set to tempt the reader. A network of caves cut off by a roiling surf provides danger and mystery for the latest Buccaneer’s adventure. Becca Dawes, mother of the leader of the Buccaneers, Lily, code name Sprocket, is owner, managing editor and chief reporter of St. Frederick’s only newspaper, The Foghorn. Lending support the Sprocket and her crew often puts Becca in troubled waters. Pardon the pun. The “Beachies”, a community of folks who live off the land and sea, never miss a thing that happens in the island. Their spokesman, Sibby Fintail, is more than willing to rally his crew behind solving the mystery that finds him attacked as he works to retrieve valuable crystals from the caves. The “Beachies” add a special flavor to this new tale. From St. Frederick’s beginning, the Native American inhabitants, the North Breeze Tribe, has been its Soul. These peaceful people seek to protect their way of life and their island home, and provide a strong defense against any person, place or thing that threatens St. Frederick Island and its inhabitants. These are the Island people who will come together to find the culprits behind the attack on Sibby and use their resources to help the Buccaneers overcome the efforts of those unknown forces to block them at every turn. Hang onto your hats! The Buccaneers will keep you turning those pages as fast as you can, but SPOILER ALERT, don’t go peeking at those last chapters. If you laughed at some of their antics and held your breath at others, you’re going to love this new Buccaneers escapade, THE BUCCANEERS OF ST. FREDERICK ISLAND: THE SPARKLING CAVES

The Buccaneers of St. Frederick Island

What can possibly happen when a crime happens under the very noses of a group of very savvy eighth graders at St. BeSillius’ Catholic School on St. Frederick’s Island? When the money they raised to buy toys for children in homeless shelters in near-by NYC is stolen, the Buccaneers, as they call themselves are outraged. Despite warnings from Father Felix and Sr. Jo, Sprocket, the leader of the Buccaneers, and her determined buddies set out to follow the clues, run down the thief, and get those toys for the homeless kids. When their clubhouse is burned down, and a threatening letter is sent to the local newspaper, The Foghorn, owned and operated by Sprocket’s mother, the Buccaneers are even more determined to unravel the plot against them. A mysterious island once owned by the pirate, Jon Buccleigh and a labyrinthine cave serve as the setting for this skullduggery. A Native American healer, her community, and a group of the beach people conspire with the Buccaneers to get that money back.You will be laughing at some of the Buccaneers’ antics and gasping at what those brave eight-graders face to solve the mystery. The story is rich with colorful and engaging characters as well as the flavor of post-war America in 1947. An altogether fun and satisfying read.
