Now eighteen years old and the captain of her own ship, Emma’s own adventures are thrilling, but unorthodox. Written by Rachel Anne Hemsley

1697… pirates mercilessly terrorize the Seven Seas, despite the English Embassy’s attempts to stop them. Yet in the midst of all these foul, adventure-thirsty cutthroats, one pirate stands out. Her parents’ having been killed as outlaws, Emma has been raised by pirates. Now eighteen years old and the captain of her own ship, Emma’s own adventures are thrilling, but unorthodox. With Heflan, an eccentric Embassy sheriff, constantly on her trail, things seem to get worse when his nephew, Ben, lies his way onto her ship. And when a mysterious treasure map is found, leading to a “treasure from Heaven”, will Emma be able to outrun the dangers of being a pirate….while falling in love?

Emma of Winds is a sprightly written story that grabs our interest as the author weaves pirate battles, local history and even romance….

Emma of Winds has all the necessary ingredients for the kind of book that not only teenagers, but audiences of all ages crave. While reading about the spine tingling adventures of bright, independent Emma, the eighteen-year-old female captain of a long ago pirate ship, they will find many desirable traits to emulate… Those who enjoyed the Twilight books will thrill to this first of the planned Emma of Winds series.
