My model for Blackbeard in Blackbeard’s Lost Treasure

Blackbeard FigureA little behind-the-scenes from Blackbeard’s Lost Treasure.

This Blackbeard figure served as my model for the pirate during the writing of Blackbeard’s Lost Treasure.
I got this during a research trip to Bath, NC – the town where the notorious pirate lived before his death.

I visited the Pirate’s Treasure Shop on S Main St. and met the owner/proprietor, a sweet older woman named Alethia. She took the time to answer many of my questions about Blackbeard and Bath.

Some of that conversation ended up in the novel.
