"Uprising" is the exciting second book of the Jonathan Kinkaid series, where Kinkaid's daring and proficiency are tested to the limit when he is given command of the lightly armed brig, Swift, of 12 guns. Ordered to deliver a diplomat bearing a copy of the Declaration of Independence to the Dutch free port of St. Eustatia in the Caribbean, his mission seems easy enough. But then why have they taken on over 100 muskets and heavy weapons? All Kinkaid is told is that he must assist a major of marines with a secret assignment that takes them to the wet, steaming jungle island of Dominica, inhabited by cannibalistic Caribe Indians. As if this and the might of the Royal Navy weren't enough to contend with, Kinkaid must also gain information of any pirate activity in the Caribbean that might interfere with American shipping.
A story of strange allies and astounding deceit, of happy times followed by terrible heartbreak, where the tinkling of champagne glasses is followed by the roar of cannons in the blink of an eye, "Uprising" is rousing, fast-paced sea-going adventure in the Winston style. Cover art by the author.

From the Author:

The Jonathan Kinkaid Series is an exciting, meticulously researched, nautical fiction, action-adventure series, with a touch of romance, for readers of all ages. Each book is based on actual events; each takes us to a different theatre of the war at sea during the American Revolution. Available in all formats. With cover art by the author.
I especially enjoyed writing "Uprising," as it takes place in the Caribbean, in waters that I have sailed. I was also able to revisit the Island of Dominica where I once vacationed, with its mountainous jungle, black sand beaches and famous Boiling Lake. As for the story itself, I had only the barest idea as to what adventures Kinkaid would find aboard the Swift, his first command of a Continental Navy ship, but like all true heroes, he met every challenge I presented him with. I am especially proud of the character development in this, my second novel.
