Death Island (Unpublished; Editing for Self-Publishing)
Her family name tainted by her great grandfather’s crimes of piracy, Meriden Cummings is far from the typical 18th Century woman. She works in her father’s carpenter shop, knows how to sword fight, and openly speaks her mind. She is a complete social outcast.
However, her life is about to change after a gang of pirates attack her village and her blood uncovers an ancient map adorned with Mayan glyphs leading to Death Island. An island legends say is ruled by the god of death, Ah Puch. Her great grandfather had sought after the island before he vanished without a trace. Now, teaming up with few good friends, Meriden’s about to journey across the sea to solve her family secret.
There are only a few problems: her growing feeling toward a mysterious stranger linked to her great grandfather’s legend; a greedy band of pirates after her great grandfather’s rumored treasure; and a contact she has unknowingly signed in blood with Death himself.
