The Pirates of Pamlico Sound is a novella written in 2005 under a former pseudonym of mine (Patrick Hillman).

Synopsis : A woman finds her personal life and love life mysteriously interconnected with pirate and colonial items (and people) in this supernatural tale that alternates between modern times and the past. (Not an arrrg! -type pirate story.) Rated “mature,” but only for suggestiveness / sensuality (i.e., adult themes, not explicitness).

Actually, this book got me into a little hot water with my wife, if I recall correctly. She said I clearly “understood women” more than I normally let on — and then extrapolated that, if this was true, then I have no excuse for being the asshole that I am sometimes. Well, if I successfully portrayed the female mind, maybe it was just a luck-shot. (And, I think maybe I’m perhaps less of an asshole now than I was then. … Okay, maybe not.)
