Read full description of the books:
“First Voyage: The Sea Lord Chronicles” mixes the Napoleonic Wars in the Age of Sail, historical fantasy and a coming-of-age story for an exciting new sea adventure series.
When 14-year-old Alexander Hope is sent away by his stingy uncle to become a junior officer in the Royal Navy, he has never seen the sea. There are high expectations for Alexander, whose famous ancestor was Sir Algernon Hope, a sea elemental who defeated the Spanish Armada and saved England from invasion. England is once again fighting for survival, this time against the Emperor Napoleon.
Though he gets off to a rough start by getting seasick in port and making a bitter enemy, Alexander soon finds new confidence in himself and discovers that he may have inherited his heroic ancestor’s ability to command the sea.
As England—and the H.M.S. Resolution—struggle for survival against the forces of the Napoleonists, Alexander’s newfound ability could tip the balance of power.

Read information about the authorDavid Healey made his publishing debut with SHARPSHOOTER, a what-if historical thriller about an attempt to assassinate Union General Ulysses S. Grant during the Civil War, published by an imprint of Penguin Putnam. That novel was the result of years of research into the Civil War that included time as a reenactor at Gettysburg and other battlefields.
In its review, the Civil War News wrote: “SHARPSHOOTER has the feel of a techno-thriller, the kind offered by Tom Clancy or Dean Koontz ... SHARPSHOOTER moves quickly and is filled with all manner of intrigue."
Healey has brought that same passion for research and history to his World War II novels, GHOST SNIPER, ARDENNES SNIPER, and RED SNIPER. During a 21-year career as a journalist, he was fortunate enough to interview many veterans of the 29th Division who landed at Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. Some of the events and characters in these novels were inspired by their stories.
He loves the idea of a character like Micajah Cole, a self-reliant backwoods hunter who turns out to be unrelenting and ruthless as a sniper, especially against a skilled adversary, in the pages of these books.
In addition to fiction, he has written books on regional history, including 1812: REDISCOVERING CHESAPEAKE BAY'S FORGOTTEN WAR and GREAT STORMS OF THE CHESAPEAKE.
A graduate of Washington College and the Stonecoast MFA program, he was recognized in 2011 as a Chaney Scholar in history by St. Mary’s College of Maryland. Visit him online at www.davidhealeyauthor.com or follow him at Facebook at facebook.com/david.healey.books
