Arizona Authors Launch a Treasure Hunting Adventure


(Fountain Hills AZ June 24 2015) History books tell us that pirates were mostly eradicated in the Americas by the late 18th century but that is not entirely accurate. According to Arizona authors Brian Hill and Dee Power pirates just evolved into what today are called venture capitalists.

Their latest novel features a modern day heroine Jill trying to find the gold her pirate ancestor Maria hid 300 years before. Not an easy task when Jill finds out she's been betrayed by her fiancé while fighting off drug dealers and being chased by professional treasure hunters.

"The venture capitalists we have met in the course of our business careers and while writing two books about business finance taught us how piracy works on a practical basis. Yes the concept of 'no prey no pay' is very much alive today" says Hill. "Of course these modern-day pirates chant 'Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of Merlot'."

Power continues "Other than that and the fact venture capitalists aren't the colorful dressers that pirate ship captains were they are quite similar to the 18th century buccaneers depicted in our book Treasure in the Moonlight."

Adds Hill"It may seem unusual for a pirate captain to be a woman. However our research shows there truly were female pirates and even several female pirate captains including Grace O'Malley born in Ireland in 1530 and Cheng I Sao or Mrs. Cheng who terrorized the China Sea during the early 1800's. Mrs. Cheng was perhaps one of the most notorious pirates of all time commanding at the height of her infamous career a band of over 50000 men and women. Two of the most notable 18th century female pirates were Anne Bonny and Mary Read who became more famous than Calico Jack Rackham the captain they served under."

The romance of the high seas treasure hunting and pirate adventures have often been the subject of novels. "Treasure in the Moonlight" is set apart by its heroines both in the past and present day who face up to their challenges with fortitude and courage and even swashbuckling swordplay when necessary.
