Sea Robbers

Sea Robbers

Anne Ingram

New Zealander Ben has his holiday in Borneo well worked out. His plans include windsurfing, snorkelling and lazing by the pool. They definitely don’t include tours to cultural villages that his mother insists he come on. But it’s during a tour, that Ben meets Mahmood, a Malaysian boy his own age. The two have barely become friends when they are thrust into a world far more menacing that Ben could have imagined – the dangerous world of modern day pirates.

When I lived in Singapore, I was amazed to read report after report in The Straits Times about pirate attacks along the Malaysian coastline. Pirates! In this day and age? But it was true. Then I visited Borneo and heard more stories about pirates stealing up rivers and attacking villages. Imagination took over. I knew I had to write about them, so I did. Sea Robbers was my first novel.
