The Bloody Jewel, written by Lisamarie Lamb, is a fantastic tale of horror at sea. I love stories taking place aboard ships of old. My Grandfather told me plenty of stories of his days as the Captain of a ship. None of his were quite as eerie as what Lisamarie tells us. Add in the bloody art of the great Thomas Arensberg and we have one tale of horror you won't soon forget.

Book Description

October 9, 2014
My body swings from the yard arm of the ship, the Bloody Jewel, hanging where it was left when my struggles finally ceased, and I was allowed to die. Hanging where it will stay until the crows finish with it. Where it will stay until the smell becomes too much for the crew, or my spine crumbles to dust and no longer supports my ravaged, angrily abused bones. What will become of me then?
At least the other dead, my supposed victims, had a service, albeit brief, and a burial at sea. At least they are at rest, and their souls are at peace. When they killed me—tried me and condemned me—my shipmates believed they had rid their beloved ship of the monster that lived within it, that lived amongst them and tried to destroy them.
They got it wrong.

I'm a writer... At least, I write...

I was five when I wrote my first short story - it involved a car going over a cliff, Jessica Fletcher and the Phantom Raspberry Blower. It didn't have much of a plot (he did it, she solved it) but it did have rather colourful (crayon) illustrations and it did make me realise that writing was for me.
At 12 I wrote my first novel during the school summer holidays. Loosely based on the Famous Five, with a bit of James Bond thrown in, it was an adventure story and my teacher made me read some of it out in class. And that's when I realised that I wanted people to hear my stories and read my work.

Over the intervening years, I have written various short stories, plays, poems and novels in different genres, including romance and children's books.
