A young pirate narrowly avoids the gallows when the governor of the Bahamas enlists his aid in bringing hostage-turned-pirate Katherine Lindsay to justice. A pirate hunter returns to his old ways, with the demons of his past swiftly following his trail. A beautiful strumpet falls in league with Blackbeard, witnessing his despicable crimes firsthand, before she becomes a pawn in his schemes. As all sides spiral toward a fiery climax, the odds are in favor of death, and those few who survive will never be the same.

“Arr Maties, welcome aboard the pirate ship of Captain Jonathon Griffith. Don’t touch anything and beware of the captain; he might make us walk the plank. Author Matt Tomerlin is our guide this weekend. We’ll stay close to him since he is in good ranks with the crew. Matt is going to tell us about his new release and how he weaved his tale.”
Have you ever based a character on someone you know?
Not specifically, but I do incorporate personality traits from everyone I know into nearly every character. In “The Devil’s Fire,” Katherine Lindsay has elements of the strongest women I know, who have faced hardship and emerged stronger, chin held high. The main antagonist, Edward Livingston, contains the very worst traits of humanity; a personification of those dark thoughts we never entertain. Nathan Adams is very much the naïve youth I was and many other teenaged males were. Captain Jonathan Griffith represents blind ambition, and proves to be the most difficult obstacle in Katherine Lindsay’s path, because there’s an undeniable attraction between them, despite the horrible things he has done.

The surgeon was scrambling through the wave as it cascaded over the deck, stubbornly trying to get to a deckhand that was pinned beneath a fallen yardarm. If the pool of blood that spread from the man’s compressed torso was any indication, he was well beyond saving.
