1. Give me the “elevator pitch” for your book in five to ten sentences.
My self-published novel, Counter Currents, is a story of smugglers, river pirates, rebels, love, and war. Most scenes are set against the grandeur of the Thousand Islands during the drama of North America’s forgotten war, the Patriot War of 1838. Among the raiders was Bill Johnston, the Thousand Islands legend. The protagonist, Ryan, a young immigrant, is drawn into Johnston’s world of piracy and secret societies. Ryan falls for Johnston’s daughter, Kate. Tugged by the opposing currents of romance and war, Ryan struggles to reconcile his troubled family history, his duty and his heart. Counter Currents is history illuminated by fiction.
