Thrust and Cluster of Lies, Samuel Marquis vividly combines the excitement of the best modern techno thrillers, an education in geology, and a clarifying reminder that the choices each of us make have a profound impact on our precious planet Ambassador Marc Grossman, Former U.S Under Secretary of StateIts fascinating that youre the ninth great grandson of Captain Kidd How has that relationship influenced your perspective and research on pirates Most of all, the ancestral connection to Captain Kidd has made me want to strive for historical accuracy because the Golden Age of Piracy and pirates like Kidd and Blackbeard have been inaccurately portrayed in books, movies, and television Historians, authors, and filmmakers are going to have different interpretations of character and motivation, but they should never purposefully deviate from the established historical facts In Blackbeard The Birth of America, I have strived for historical accuracy and there is not a single character in the book that is not based on an actual historical figure with the exception of a quartermaster to a secondary pirate captain, whose name is unknown I owe it to my ancestor Captain Kidd to get pirate stories right.Now that were 300 years away from Blackbeards death, what do you think the most commonly held misinformation is on his life That he was a violent, murderous cutthroat and villain My book is dedicated to Blackbeard and the dedication says it best For the real Blackbeard who has been maligned, co opted, exploited, and misrepresented as a ruthless villain and sociopathic cutthroat in the name of propaganda and profit for three centuries now May ye rest in peace The truth is that probably half of the things attributed to Blackbeard are completely wrong and my book goes out of the way to correct these errors, or at least not include them For instance, the image of Edward Thache as a cruel and ruthless villain was largely created by propagandist newspaper accounts in London and America, the British Board of Trade, colonial governors like Alexander Spotswood, and Captain Charles Johnsons Nathanial Mists A General History of the Robberies and Murders of the Most Notorious Pirates, first published in 1724 six years after Blackbeards death Unlike my ancestor Captain Kidd, whom famous pirate writer illustrator Howard Pyle said should be relegated to the dull ranks of simply respectable people, Blackbeard has attained a mythical status Yet he is perhaps the most misunderstood and historically misrepresented of all the sea captains who went on the account in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries Blackbeard The Birth of America aims to correct that.How will readers of your other books connect with Blackbeard, your first pirate story All my books are historical fiction suspense novels with multiple point of view characters from diverse backgrounds and a high degree of historical detail and authenticity and Blackbeard The Birth of America is no different Readers who enjoy my books will like this historical thriller, maybe even since it is pure history I believe they will also enjoy the novel because it tells the story of the birth of America and one of the first American revolutionaries in the War of Independence against the British Crown.
