Gregory Mone

Dear Reader:

I'm tempted to greet you with an emphatic "argghhh," but the pirates in FISH don't talk that way. They're a bit more articulate, and odd.

The novel, written under strict orders from my nieces and nephews, is packed with adventure and centered around a brain-teasing treasure hunt. As a reader, though, I've always been drawn to characters first, so I also worked for years to come up with a unique crew of rogues, including a gourmand (based on my mechanic), a gargantuan scholar, a songwriter, some delightfully nasty villains, and Fish himself, a boy who loves to swim and hates to fight.

Whether your summer reading list is frighteningly long or embarassingly short, I hope you'll take a look at FISH. You can learn more about the pirates at fishthepirate.com or write me - greg@fishthepirate.com - for a chance to win a signed copy.

Happy summer reading!
Greg
