Why is the ghost of a powerful pirate queen watching a site in the swampy lowlands of Bon Secour, Alabama? Charlie Pameroy, Lillia’s little brother, sets off on a quest to find buried treasure with a local boy. Lillia, sensing the presence of the pirate queen, knows Charlie’s in trouble and races to save him.
Watched Places is set in Bon Secour, Alabama, on the quiet backwaters of the Bon Secour River. Pirates would use this sheltered, safe harbor to hide from the ships patrolling the Gulf of Mexico. Lillia and Charlie are staying at the Swift-Cole House, a tidewater mansion which is open for tours.
Watched Places will be published June 2016.
