Barbados and Jamaica 1648. The lush and deadly Caribbean paradise, domain of rebels and slaveholders, of bawds and buccaneers. Colonists fight a wishful war for freedom against England.

CARIBBEE is the untold story of the first American revolution, as English colonists pen a Declaration of Defiance ("liberty" or "death") against Parliament and fight a full-scale war for freedom against an English fleet -- with cannon, militia, many lives lost -- over a century before 1776.

The powerful story line, based on actual events, also puts the reader in the midst of the first major English slave auction in the Americas, and the first slave revolt. We see how plantation slavery was introduced into the English colonies, setting a cruel model for North America a few decades later, and we experience what it was like to be a West African ripped from a rich culture and forced to slave in the fields of the New World. We also see the unleashed greed of the early Puritans, who burned unruly slaves alive, a far different truth from that presented in sanitized history books. Finally, we witness how slavery contributed to the failure of the first American revolution, as well as to the destruction of England's hope for a vast New World empire.

We also are present at the birth of the buccaneers, one-time cattle hunters who banded together to revenge a bloody Spanish attack on their home, and soon became the most feared marauders in the New World. The story is mythic in scope, with the main participants being classic American archetypes -- a retelling of the great American quest for freedom and honor. The major characters are based on real individuals, men and women who came West to the New World to seek fortune and personal dignity.

Now add Captain Nemo – ace pilot, megalomaniac and complete moron – to the mix.

Hell-bent on becoming the most fearsome dread pirate the galaxy's ever seen, Nemo leads his motley crew with bluster and bravado through planetary blockades, space station shoot-outs and rowdy barroom brawls.

Their fortunes are spent, frittered away on junk food and alcohol. Their crew is dwindled down to its last three members. The galaxy has all but forgotten about them.

Two years have passed since Captain Nemo rose to the heights of galactic infamy only to crash and burn in spectacular fashion. Hiding out in the galaxy’s bloomhole, the three remaining members of The Unconstant Lover’s crew are broke, desperate and ready to murder one another at the slightest provocation.

That’s when they stumble upon the greatest heist the galaxy’s ever seen, all planned and packaged just for them.

That heist will see them robbing blind the most feared megacorp in the galaxy – the impregnable Gitter Consortium. It will take all of the crew’s cunning, firepower and profanity to escape this one with the booty on board – and they’re two men down.

The greatest challenge the cutthroat crew faces, however, is not spice rangers or planetary blockades or corporate secrets – it’s themselves. With seven years of bickering and backstabbing under their belts, it will be a miracle if these three space pirates can pull together enough to pull off this one last job.
