A recurring nightmare awakens eighteen year-old Jonathan William Moore in a panic. For nearly a year the same terrifying dreams have haunted the young pirate: demon-faced thieves murdering a sleeping crew and a devastating fire aboard a small brigantine. When John recognizes a small token from his dreams in a drawer aboard his father's ship, he begins to realize that these nightmares may have dangerous ties with reality. After a foolish mistake rips John away from his old life, he discovers that his destiny lies in the secrets of an old shipwreck. With nothing to lose, the pirate embarks on a quest to find the legendary wreckage, all the while piecing together his past.

From the Author:

FOREWORD
I wrote the first chapter of this story when I was 13 years old. Even at that time, John and some of the other characters had already lived in my head for years, popping up in short stories and sometimes in my dreams. I wanted to write about them before I knew I wanted to be a writer, but I had no idea how to begin. Notes of dialogue, scenery, and pieces of plot filled a composition book when I had finally decided to give the story a try. I finished the first chapter, started high school, and didn't touch it again until the summer after my freshman year in college, when I found the composition book; from May to September I typed the entire first draft. Four years (and nearly two writing degrees later) I am editing what is probably the fifth draft and anticipating The Second Hand's publication. This has been tough work for me; while I would love to reshape this book with my more updated style, doing so would require me to strip the text down to the bare bones and rebuild, and that wouldn't be fair to my 13 year-old self. Instead, I have tried my best to leave it as a ship in a bottle, a little time capsule in my life as a writer.
