Things that Inspire…
Myths and legends intrigue me. They always have. So do the mysteries to which no one has an irrefutable answer. The thing is—the imagination can take you so many places as it forms its own possibilities, its own answers to the world’s legends and mysteries. And in this wondrous place, my novels are born.
In one such novel, “Shadow of the Witte Wieven,” I took on the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle. Over the years, I have watched many documentaries concerning this oceanic area between Florida, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda (although the area varies by author). I have read books and several recorded testimonies. Many of those accounts share common events: A sudden unusual storm; bizarre cloud formations; flashes of light; loss of visible horizon, and malfunction of navigational equipment to name a few.
And I wanted to know. What happened to all the ships and planes that disappeared without a trace? Why didn’t anyone ever find a piece of wreckage? And what about that abandoned schooner the Ellen Austin encountered in 1881. The captain ordered a skeleton crew to man the deserted ship. And though they sailed alongside each other, a sudden but brief storm separated them. No one ever saw the schooner or her crew again. Where could they have gone in such a short amount of time?
In the year 1632, Wolfaert Dircksen Van Ness, Captain of the Witte Wieven encountered such a tempest while sailing in the heart of the Bermuda Triangle. He knows what happens when one encounters the sudden, mysterious storm that defies all logic. Yes, the handsome captain is still with us.
So, I invite you to pull up a chair and sail along with Wolf and his crew as they embark on their newest adventure to assist the gorgeous DEA agent they encounter in the middle of a raging storm and with whom he falls deeply in love…
