Children's Pirate Book for iPad Excerpt One From The Day I Became A Pirate | The Day I Became A Pirate

I was walking on the beach one day

when I looked out to the sea,

And there on the horizon

was a ship approaching me.

The Day I Became A Pirate

This is the first line from the book The Day I Became A Pirate. I wrote this while walking along the beach with my two sons one day; they weren’t really up for the hike I had planned, so I started to spin a story to keep their minds off the long trek we were about to make.

I pointed out to the sea and told them that when I was a young boy, I looked out one day and saw a pirate ship coming toward me over the horizon. They were instantly hooked and as you will see, I started adding more and more to the story to keep their attention.

The illustration is a version of the pirate ship done by Zach Clough. I’ll be posting an unpublished or draft image with each expert and short story about the book, how I created the book, or just some background.
