What would ‘you’ do if a pirate crew literally dropped in ‘next door’? Would they be welcomed, or ‘not’? When Captain Black Mac Jack decides their pirating days are over and must resettle his crew on land, they relocate their galleon into the middle of suburbia, unaware of the hostile reception that awaits them. Fuelled by rumours and innuendo, most of their new neighbours fear their well-ordered existence will be destroyed by bad buccaneer behaviour. ‘Who asked them to come here anyway?’ Can the neighbourhood be persuaded that pirates too can just want a quiet life? Jack accepts the challenge and sets out to charm them one house at a time, starting with the people next door. Will he succeed against all the odds and his crew be accepted as part of this community, or will they have to move on once again? Find out in Pirates Next Door.

Born in England and currently living in Australia, the author’s working life encompassed a range of industries and countries. While in the USA, he survived San Francisco’s last major earthquake. Involvements in the welfare sector exposed him to issues of social diversity and exclusion, which is the underlying theme of Pirates Next Door, even as it is intended to be an entertainment in verse and a fun book to read or to have read to you.
Having written poetry and song lyrics over many years, this is the author’s first published book – please enjoy.
