Caden Chronicles Mystery Series
Caribbean Chronicles Pirate Series
The Caribbean Chronicles series are stories of high sea tales about piracy in the 1700s.
Novels in the Caribbean Chronicles are fast, fun, clean teen and tween books. Boys and girls will fall in love with the quirky characters Ricky meets, their oddball antics, and the way Ricky battles pirates—both dead and alive—all while trying to get back to present time and his home near Quiet Cove High.
If you drowned and the sea spit you out, thrusting you back into the golden age of piracy, buried treasure and beauty beyond belief... would you stay?
Parents will appreciate the clean elements and moral values that avoid profanity and suggestive situations. As an imperfect teen sleuth, Ricky is troubled by the ruthless actions of those around him and the lies and treachery of pirates. Above all, he wants to right wrongs committed hundreds of years in the past. This drives Ricky to act in ways that lead him towards danger.
Each book has some romance, but it’s innocent and clean. The girls who help Ricky find treasure and battle pirates are independent, smart, brave, and often see things Ricky overlooks.
If forced to sail with pirates, captured & tried for piracy, and sentenced to hang, would you trade your body to the Flying Dutchman in order to save your soul?
The Caribbean Chronicles are appropriate for mature seventh grade readers. Other parents may choose seventh or eighth grade, due to the fact that Ricky IS sailing with pirates who, their very nature, are bloodthirsty cutthroats. The Caribbean Chronicles are also a great, nostalgic read for adults who enjoy high sea stories, pirates, and sailing adventures.

Eddie’s Inmate Reading Program
Since the first of 2023, we’ve shipped devotional books to 24 young men, ages 16 to 22. Most inmates do not receive any mail, phone calls, or visits from those outside, so when a new book arrives, especially one that offers God’s hope and Truth, they will read — or get someone to read to them. Why are we asking for Amazon Prime partners? Because we believe those incarcerated are not simply a captive audience, but an audience Jesus wants to capture with his love.
The Lord said, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” — Jesus.
