Treasure Lost

Treasure Lost

What do you treasure and how far would you go to find it?

Peter and Farren are two brothers who think adventure is sneaking into a pub or going rabbit hunting. Little do they know! Soon the youths are on a whirlwind trip of betrayal, daggers, self-discovery and a giant reticulated python!

Somehow they have to find a way to stop fighting with each other, avoid a sadistic Navy Admiral and a mysterious cloaked pirate captain, whilst remembering to tap the biscuits on the side of the ship – maggots are never good for breakfast!

“If you came for treasure it lies within, if you did not, what you treasure lies beyond your grasp.”

US/AUS: Available on Kindle, and in paperback at Amazon and Createspace

UK: Available on Kindle and in paperback at Amazon

International: Also available in paperback at The Book Depository (free worldwide shipping).


  • Peter’s name means strong and dependable and Farren’s means erratic, impetuous
  • Treasure Lost II: Treasure Found will be the last book in the series

    I read this book last month and posted my review on Amazon. I thought I would share it here:

    5.0 out of 5 stars An Adventure on the High Seas!!!, July 7, 2010
    By Anne-Marie (B.C. Canada) – See all my reviews

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Treasure Lost (Kindle Edition)
    I JUST finished this book, and I had to come immediately and post my review while everything was fresh in my imagination….

    If you are a child (10+) or even an adult who dreamt of pirate adventures as a child — THIS IS YOUR BOOK!!!!

    Oh! What an adventure! You go from a sleepy town, to a Merchant ship, to a Navy vessel, to a *shudder*… pirate ship… and the adventure never quits!!! Two young brothers sneak aboard a merchant ship to save their beloved Nana — and swashbuckelry (I’m not sure if that’s a word, but it fits) and adventure ensues!!!

    The author has done an AMAZING job of describing life on board these ships… His descriptions of sights, smells, sounds are beyond reproach. He has a fantastic command of the english language and his descriptions are so good… so “spot on”… that you can literally see it, hear it, smell it, in your mind.

    I cannot think of a single child who would not LOVE this story — boy OR girl. I only wish I had this story to read when I was young…. Oh! The adventures my imagination would take me on after I read it!!!!

    As for the ending… I don’t want to give ANYTHING away — let’s just say it “shivered me timbers…. Arrrrrhhhh!”

    I don’t know if it’s just me, but I feel a sequel coming on…. Please!!!!

    Great for ALL kids young AND old!!!

    Gosh! It was scary, was so violent, yet I kept on reading…The story is so lively, so full of suspense that I just forgot to sleep spent the whole night on it. Even when I finished the book, 6:00 in the morning, I still couldn’t got to sleep but trying to see if there is a sequel to it. It has to be, has to be, somewhere! I got the book from kindle, so I looked there, and I looked into online libraries, and just online, everywhere. Oh, I hope the sequel is coming soon!

      I am glad you enjoyed the book. If you look in the next tab, I do have a sequel plotted. I am currently writing my next book, Alien Hunters: Discovery. After that I will write a sequel to one of my existing books – either Treasure Lost II: Treasure Found or Bug Island II: Infestation/Invasion – both of which will be the final book in their respective series. I’m tempted to write the Treasure Lost sequel first. So if everything goes according to plan, Alien Hunters will be finished November/December and the Treasure Lost sequel should be done by March 2012.

    I will vote for you to write the Treasure Lost sequel first! Please! March is my birthday, so it is so great to have the book to read then! I can hardly wait! Thanks for writing to me. I feel so special!


    • Ha ha – March is my birthday too. I’ll see what I can do. Keep watch in the “Next” tab for what the current release schedule will be.
