NOTES FROM THE AUTHOR
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.
A gripping tale of adventure – Valerie Scott
An exciting adventure about piracy and kidnapping in Borneo – The Dominion Post
The author does a ripping job. She manages to pack a lot of action into the tale, interspersed with an obvious knowledge of the country she writes about. The Chronicle.
A neat book for teenagers that embraces New Zealand and Malay cultures. – Bay of Plenty Times
A good storyline with rounded characters – New and Notable
