The Fountain of Youth Exists!

Fountain of Youth in...

The epub version is available here

A brief synopsis:
The history of St. Augustine, Florida may be wrong. Native Americans from a North Florida tribe are said to have lived for centuries due to the inexplicable power of a mysterious source of water. Some say this is merely legend. Early explorers went in search of this “Fountain of Youth” only to come back disappointed. Still, the Fountain did indeed exist (at Itchtucknee Springs, Ft. White, Florida)!

Young Lt. Stephen Hathorne, shipwrecked in Spanish La Florida in 1808 will discover the secrets of this tribe if he can survive the trip. Indeed, he discovers that he and his own family are responsible for their very existence! Traveling through threads of time's sensitive fabric, Stephen and his new-found love will have to face many dangers: pirates, zealots, slavers, and a madman from the future before they can find peace in the past.

In this story, four time periods of the beautiful and exotic Floridian town of St. Augustine are explored. Although a sci-fi romance, lovers of history will be thrilled at the meticulous detail.

Incidentally, for North Florida fans of historical fiction, Itchetucknee Springs near Fort White stars as the legendary "Fountain of Youth"... with a real scientific explanation!

Read the exciting details concerning the most notorious murder of all time! You decide who to blame! Edward "Blackbeard" Thache has been misrepresented, misunderstood, and rhetorically damned in the 300 years since "A General History of the Pyrates" was first published in 1724. Indeed, Thache and his reputation has all but been lost to us. This book explores the details, motivations, and literary evidence used against Blackbeard leading up to his death and in the profitable aftermath. It has been presented as a publication of "Blackbeard 300: Nov. 22, 1718-2018" tri-centennial.
