Bill Furney is the author of Black Hearts White Bones, a fiction story about what might have happened to Anne Bonny and Mary Read after they “plead their bellies” at their trials for piracy.
It’s a really fun adventure story that takes quite a few twists and turns.
Bill and I dig into his process for writing the book, all the way from research to how he created his audiobook for Audible. Some great info here for authors and anyone interested in the nuts and bolts of the book biz.
And there’s a bit of Star Trek talk too. Yep, left field. 🙂 But it all ties into our pirate discussion.
Be sure to also visit the MacKay Pirate Family’s crowdfunding page to help them beat that nastiest enemy of all, cancer. http://www.underthecrossbones.com/mackay
