Le Corsair is on course to publication


RAVEN'S HEAD PRESS LOGOFollowing Michael Hudson’s announcement on his Facebook profile, I am happy to inform all interested parties that Chasing the Mermaid, the first story in the Le Corsair series has been picked up by Raven’s Head Press, and will be out in 2016.

I have talked before of my project for a series of thrilling adventure stories set in the 1950s, in the Mediterranean area.
Well, here goes.

As usual, I’ve been quite slow on the historical documentation and character-creation phase, but once the setting and characters were in place, writing the story was a relatively smooth ride.


Chasing the Mermaid was a test run, and helped me find the narrative voice and define what will be the structure of all the stories in the series.

I am very proud of joining the Raven’s Head catalog, and I think this is a sign that 2016 will be a good year under the sign of adventure.

Watch this space for further news as things develop.
