Born in 1609, son of a native woman and a Dutch sea captain he never knew, Jaki Gefjon grows up in the jungle as a sorcerer’s apprentice. Later kidnapped by pirates, he befriends his captor, Trevor Pym, notorious for his dreaded man-of-war, Wyvern. Jaki’s adventures take him from emerald jungles and tribal battles to the wave-washed decks of pirate ships and breathless moments of cutlass-swinging danger.
The scientific marvels on the European privateer become the young soul-catcher’s passion, until he falls for Lucinda, the headstrong daughter of Pym’s sworn enemy. Propelled by intrigue, curses and visions, this seafaring saga takes Lucinda and Jaki from the South Seas to India and to a bold, unforeseen destiny in the New World.

I live in Honolulu, and I actually write most of my fiction inside a volcano: Koko Crater, a botanical garden near my home. Fantasies, visions, hallucinations or whatever we call those irrational powers that illuminate our inner life fascinate me. I’m particularly intrigued by the creative intelligence that scripts our dreams. And I love how this dramatic energy finds its way to the page, into the one form that most precisely defines who we are: story.
