Dr. Marriott has a PhD in cultural anthropology.  </p><h3>What prompted you to write this book?  <br></h3><div>I am intrigued by real nontraditional women, especially historical women, who lived when there were no laws that favored them. The idea of swashing buckling, daring women who sailed the seas a-pirating was too good to pass up.    </div><div><br></div><h3>What attracted you to this genre: romance, mystery, non-fiction, etc.? </h3><div>Although these women did live and sail the seas, there was so little verifiable data on some of them that I decided to present the book as fiction.  </div><div><br></div><h3>Are any of the characters in your book based on real people and if so, who?  </h3><div>The women in the book were all real people and their real names are used.   </div><h3><br></h3><h3>What type of research did you do to write your book?  </h3><div>The research covered books, articles and historical papers and an  internet informational search.  </div><div><br></div><h3>What book are you currently reading?  <br></h3><div>Current read: <em>Land of Hope</em>, Wilfred M. McClay   <br></div><div> </div><h3>Are you writing anything now? If so, when will it come out? <br></h3><div>My current writing: <em>Talk About Hard Times: Conversations with Women and Children of the Great Depression</em> (working title). Will not be out until late 2021.  </div><h3><br></h3><h3>If you weren't a writer, what would you do?  <br></h3><div>I’d climb mountains, sail oceans, fight battles against evil and dream, which is what I’m doing now.   </div><h3><br></h3><h3>Do you use your local library?  If so, which library is it and what do you do there? </h3><div>My library is the SaddleBrooke Library. I check out books, donate books, and give presentations.  </div><div><br>​<br></div><p><br></p><p><br></p></div>
