About the author:
Jb currently lives on a hill not far from the coast on the eastern side of the smallest continent on earth. When it's very quiet and still at night you can even hear the roar of the pacific ocean, or maybe it's the highway? No, let's say it's the ocean. She has vivid dreams, particularly when she eats peanuts. Oh, and she lives under a hat, because she likes hats, maybe because it feels slightly safer there, and maybe because when one is wearing a hat, one is ready for just about anything.
She works full time running her own small business so getting enough time to write is difficult, but writing is what she loves doing most and she packs all she can into what few spare minutes can be gleaned from each day, and when she can't get to the keyboard be assured she is thinking about what her characters are up to in her absence. (They get up to all sorts of things, I can tell you.)
Since releasing The Captain, the Avaeste and the King, Jb has continued to write and has now also finished The Memory of Blue Sky.
The Captain, the Avaeste and the King
J M Bardsley
'Up anchor!' he yelled, even though the boat that brought him hadn't yet reached the Avaeste. 'Let out the sails!' he bellowed. 'Everyone on deck!'
The crew assembled, their mission was explained, they may face cannon fire soon, Ashton told them, so they must get fast underway.
'You didn't ask to be here,' the captain said, 'so it's not lightly I take you out on this mission, and I will not expect you to stand and fight if it comes to that.'
'Oh but we will Captain,' said Phillips.
'And I second that,' added Banks, 'we'll show them they underestimated us and the brave Avaeste.'
'Hopefully it won't come to that,' Ashton said, 'for I have another plan.'
The Captain, the Avaeste and the King is a tale of high adventure, undertaken by a boy captain and his irregular crew, in search of a rare treasure. At first reluctant, the hijacked crew grow ever more eager as their captain steers them across the Aethermarinus, and as they learn more of just what it is they are searching for, and why the captain is so determined to find it.
You might enjoy this book if you enjoy films like those of Hayao Miyazake, or novels like the Narnia series.
The Captain, the Avaeste and the King was finalist in the 2011 Caleb Prize for unpublished fiction.
