About the book . . .

Eric has always felt useless. That is, until he meets Charlotte, the new girl at school. She has the power to see other people’s natural-born abilities–what they are born to do. So when she tells him he’s a pirate hunter, and offers to prove it, Eric can’t resist the adventure. Thrown in the middle of the Spanish Main, Eric must quickly accept his skills, or else succumb to the horrors of the dreaded Willard Pirate Twins.

About the author . . .

Marty Reeder lives in Smithfield, Utah, with his wife and five children. He teaches creative writing and Spanish at the local high school. Though not a natural born pirate hunter, he taught sailing at Scout camps for many years and uses his history degree to fuel worlds of piracy and compensate for perhaps being born in the wrong time and place for his passions!
