In Honor of Talk Like a Pirate day on Monday, Sept 19th, I'll be posting about a different female pirate every day from today through next Friday! I thought ye may want to know about all the famous women in history who chose piracy over life as a conventional lady.
Also, be sure and come back on Monday!!! We'll be having a Talk Like a Pirate Day contest. Test yer skills in pirate speak and enter to have a chance to win a free pirate book. Together with author, Jamie Carrie, who is hosting another contest on Facebook that you'll want to check out! we'll be giving away two copies each of our own books.
Now onto Anne Bonney!
No record of Anne's execution has ever been found. Some say that her wealthy father bought her release after the birth of her child and she settled down to a quiet family life on a small Caribbean island. Others believe that she lived out her life in the south of England, owning a tavern where she regaled the locals with tales of her exploits.
