Treasure Island is an adventure classic written by Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". Its influence is enormous on our own perception of pirates, including treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders. Stevenson stated "Treasure Island came out of the great Captain Johnson's History of the Notorious Pirates.", which is included in this edition in its entirety with all the incredible life stories of the notorious world famous pirates that inspired Stevenson and are also mentioned in the novel.

Callie Henderson had to fight to put her tragic past behind her, but now the up-and-coming player in the hospitality industry is well on her way to happiness. She has her sights set on the lead renovation position at the Sunset Harbor Inn--an inn that just happens to be owned by Sam Edwards, the man who comforted her in her grief and gave her one night of passion before walking away. Sam is searching for someone who can turn his quaint inn into a premier boutique hotel. He just never expected that someone to be the one woman who knows his deepest secrets. But he needs Callie, and Callie needs the job. Throw in a talking parrot with a cracker addiction, some uncooperative islanders, and enough sexual sparks to light a beachside bonfire, and they've got their work cut out for them.... More to Give is a story of heartbreak and healing, of facing the past...and having the courage to believe in a future.

Writing creatively is important whether you publish or not. Its not so much the destination that matters but what you learn along the way. As the world turned Ive had to re-define myself. When myths fall apart, writing is the glue that holds my life together. What happens when your publisher uses your royalties to gamble in Las Vegas? My book deals with deadlines, rejections, book signings when nobody comes, and workshops when everything is great but your story. It shows how humor helps to heal, the joys of a journal and finding a voice you can trust. I describe in fictional form the lighter side of the writing life emphasizing that to fail is to achieve the unexpected.
