About the Author:

Today will be history tomorrow. Half a century of reporting hard-news convinced writer Jack M.D. Owen yesterday's facts can be as fascinating as fiction. The swashbuckling visual deeds of entertainers such as Johnny Depp's movie portrayal of Jack Sparrow, or Ioan Gruffudd's television reincarnation of Horatio Hornblower, can be matched in real time, by real people. The bloody pirate Henry 'Blackbeard' Morgan and Admiral Horatio Nelson roamed the seas long before celluloid was invented. Unfortunately, most of those villains and heroes lay forgotten in dusty tomes or under tombstones. Fortunately, Owen has tasked himself to breath life back into those old stories, for his pleasure and your entertainment.
