An Interview with Authors from the 
Romance on the High Seas Box Set

1. If you could be a character in Pirates of the Caribbean, what or who would it be and why?
There are too many to list! (NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Danelle Harmon)

2. Do you have a favorite pirate or nautical quote?
Until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore, you will not know the terror of being forever lost at sea. ~Charles Cook (USA Today Bestselling Author Barbara Devlin)

3. If you could bring one of your characters to life, which one would it be and why?
Another very hard one! I think I would choose the heroine, Prudence, from Captivated by the Captain. She is a spitfire and I just know we would have a fabulous time getting in and out of trouble! (USA Today Bestselling Author Amanda Mariel)

4. If you could sail to anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I’ve always wanted to go to Belize! The ancient temples, tree house hotels, beaches and scuba diving make it my perfect paradise! I’d also go back to San Vincenzo, Italy. It’s a small seaside town filled with quaint shops, great restaurants and nearby vineyards. I’d live there. (Author Chloe Flowers)

5. What hobbies or pastimes keep you afloat when you’re not writing?
I love to sing! I actually went to school to be a musical theatre performer and participate in a few shows every year. I also work at the Arizona Renaissance Festival when it’s open. Performing has always been my “escape” from the regular world. (Author Kamery Solomon)

6. If you could meet any pirate, who would it be and why?
Grace O’Malley. She was shrewd, wily, fearless, a leader, a lover, a successful businesswoman, a rebel, and a legend. She’s my kind of gal and surely she could teach me a thing or two. (Author Jennifer Bray-Weber)

7. You are forced to live on a desert island for six months. Food and bare survival equipment will be provided but that is all. You can take one person and five items to relieve the boredom and enhance the experience. Who is the person and what are the items? Why?
 I’d take my rogue. He’s prior Army, has an excellent nose for direction, and can fix just about everything. Plus, he’s my best friend. As for effects, I’d bring the Bible, a satellite connection so I can keep in touch with my children, mosquito netting, a stack of journals so I can write, and six months’ worth of pencils (Author Katherine Bone)

About the authors:
Katherine Bone
National Bestselling Historical Romance Author Katherine Bone has been passionate about history since she had the opportunity to travel to various Army bases, castles, battlegrounds, and cathedrals as an Army brat turned Officer's Wife. Who knew that an Army wife's passion for romance novels would lead to pirates? Certainly not her rogue, whose Alma Mater's adage is "Go Army. Beat Navy!" Now enjoying the best of both worlds, Katherine lives with her rogue in the south where she writes about rogues, rebels and rakes, aka pirates, spies, the Royal Navy, and duty, honor, and country and the happily ever afters every alpha male and lady deserve.

As an Army wife raising four children, romance helped Katherine weather loneliness. Now she hopes to pay it forward, to ease readers’ burdens by taking them on a swashbuckling, adventurous voyage into historical romance and beyond.


Chloe Flowers
A Parrothead at heart, Chloe’s love for pirates began with Peter Pan and continued with Pirates of the Caribbean and ghost stories about pirates from the Outer Banks. She listens to Celtic music while she writes. When life gets too serious, she reads Calvin and Hobbes comics. She lives in Ohio with her tall, dark and handsome husband, three children and two rambunctious dogs, Indiana and Luke, who are named after her two favorite action heroes.

Descended from a family of cooks and gourmet chefs, Chloe is a true foodie and along with working for fortune 500 companies in marketing and teaching MBA students strategic marketing, she also ran a gourmet cookie company. Cooking for a crowd runs in the blood, so her fridge is always full. She deals with stress by baking pies (just ask her college roommates what it was like for them around exam time).

Her idea of a perfect day? Sailing on the Caribbean with her family, sun in her face and wind at her back, and finishing the day in the kitchen making a fab gourmet meal and sipping a glass of wine.

The Pirates & Petticoats Series is about spunky heroines and the scoundrels who love them.


Jennifer Bray-Weber
Award-winning author Jennifer Bray-Weber is a proud native Texan. She is a married domestic goddess/beach bum with two beautiful daughters.

Holding two degrees, one is Music and Video Business, the other in Liberal Arts, she has been able to express her creative thinking through countless questionable, often hilarious, life experiences.

Her interests include writing, reading, traveling (what she likes to call "research"), horseback riding, scrapbooking, shopping, relaxing at the beach, and dares.

Barbara Devlin
USA Today bestselling, Amazon All-Star author Barbara Devlin was born a storyteller, but it was a weeklong vacation to Bethany Beach, DE that forever changed her life. The little house her parents rented had a collection of books by Kathleen Woodiwiss, which exposed Barbara to the world of romance, and Shanna remains a personal favorite. Barbara writes heartfelt historical romances that feature flawed heroes who may know how to seduce a woman but know nothing of marriage. And she prefers feisty but smart heroines who sometimes save the hero, before they find their happily ever after.

Barbara earned an MA in English and continued a course of study for a Doctorate in Literature and Rhetoric. She happily considered herself an exceedingly eccentric English professor, until success in Indie publishing lured her into writing, full-time, featuring her fictional knighthood, the Brethren of the Coast.

Danelle enjoys reading, spending time with family, friends and her animals, dog showing, plane-spotting, and sailing her Melonseed skiff, Kestrel II.



Amanda Mariel

USA Today Bestselling author Amanda Mariel dreams of days gone by when life moved at a slower pace.

She enjoys taking pen to paper and exploring historical time periods through her imagination and the written word.

When she is not writing she can be found reading, crocheting, traveling, practicing her photography skills, or spending time with her family.


Kamery Solomon
Kamery is not the person who grew up dreaming of the day that she would clutch her very own novel to her chest, tears brimming over the rims of her eyes as she thought about how she'd written it herself, finally! In fact, anything remotely like that didn't even happen until she was actually holding her first book in her hand, amazed that she'd written it and wondering how on Earth she'd managed to do it when it hadn't ever occurred to her to write one until months before. Surprisingly, though, it was just what she never realized she loved doing.

When starting out in life, Kamery had (and still has) big dreams to perform on Broadway. She loves music and acting very much, while she and dance have a love/hate relationship; she would love to do it and every form of dance decides it hates that about her, haha! The one constant she always had between the performing world and the book world were the stories, tales that transported her to other worlds and made her feel like she really could do anything. Finally, she decided she wanted to do that for someone else and sat down to write.

It's been a few years since she held that first book, realizing that she really liked writing and wanted to do more, but the love that blossomed in that moment has only grown. Currently, Kamery works from home in Arizona, while taking care of her two adorable kids, a girl and a boy, and talking her sweet husband Jake's ear off about the insane amount of characters in her head who are ready to fight to the death for a chance at their own novels. It truly is a wonderful life!
