I am, by nature, not an avid pirate lover so I find myself doing a ton or research on ships, language and 17th and 18th century history. It's how I found the Carrack and deemed it the ship on which all our school adventures take place. I thought I'd share this graphic with you as I start referencing more and more ships in book two and three. It's interesting to me that the graphic is all types of ships except for "Queen Anne's Revenge" in the bottom right corner. Can you tell me who captained that ship?

I recently got the opportunity to travel to Ireland with a long time friend. The whole experience was quite moving, visiting places made famous by films, authors, and poets. One such place was the Cliffs of Moher along the Wild Atlantic Way. This western coast of Ireland was stunning and, if I visited again, would be the place I would spend most of my time. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince filmed "the cave" scene here and Princess Bride filmed the "cliffs of insanity" at this location. It was so windy and cold. I am smiling in the picture but I was shivering all over. If you ever have a chance to visit any part of Ireland I highly recommend traveling along the Wild Atlantic Way. My buddy and I spent 8 hours on a bus that day but it was well worth it.
I personally think that's a pretty cool looking fish. Kind of reminds me of a Lion Fish. It's actually called a John Dory. Now, you've got to admit that's a pretty darn piratey sounding name and a perfect one for the new Jr. High introduced in the third book of Jack Ferrington. However, it may just mean "gilded" and "yellow". Check out more about this cool fish at its wiki site.
Anyway, the second book, Jack Ferrington and Blackbeard's Lost Treasure hasn't even been released yet and I'm already starting on book three. I've got the basic concept down and it's working title is Jack Ferrington and the Kraken's Curse. Oooohhh, scary. :-)
The next book will continue to expand the theater in which the stories take place, moving outward to another island or two in the "Wrecked Archipelago".
The new school, John Dory Jr. High, is located on that tiny island in the center of the Island of Magic. They'll face off against Moray Middle in the waters in the center of the archipelago, in the "All Hallows Eve Brawl and Ball".
It's going to be a great event with Free-Dive Treasure Grabbing, Skiff Races and Pumpkin Pounding (a school favorite). But danger and surprises surface as the games move on. Can Jack handle the new threat. Can Moray Middle bring the "Dominus Chest" back to their school? You know what? I don't know either. :-) As the story unfolds I guess I'll find out too.
Until next time, stay piratey my friends.
Well, my agent and everything I read says I need consolidate websites into a personal website because while the music may change. The books may change. Life may change, I'll always be Clint...well I guess unless I change...ah, probably not. So, here is where I'll post about whatever comes to mind and probably intermittently. I hope you enjoy and maybe, like me, find it a bit interesting...or should I say clinteresting. :-)
