Adventure on the High Seas

Fresh off the boat and newly married to the Governor’s daughter, Dominic Drubbins finds his new life in the Caribbean thrown into turmoil by a pirate attack unlike any other. Enthralled by the dashing Sebastian, Dominic takes to the high seas but as he learns more about his enigmatic companion and the ways of the world, he comes to realise what must be done if he is to have his happy ever after. William Stafford, author of Leporello on the Lam, returns to historical fantasy with this action-packed adventure, a tale of piracy, derring-do and love.


The title comes from Shakespeare’s King Richard II:

“Not all the water in the rough rude sea

Can wash the balm off from an anointed king

Disappointed by the Pirates of the Caribbean films and inspired by the Cosmo Jarvis song Gay Pirates I wanted to write an adventure with romance and fantasy elements.

Get on board with Dominic and Sebastian as they navigate the Devil’s Triangle and the stormy waters of their own relationship.

The Rough Rude Sea is available now from Amazon,Omnilit, Kobo, and all good e-booksellers.
