First Fury is the first of three books in my Fury series. First Fury is based on the true story of a woman transformed in her quest for vengeance. In 1848, dressed as man, anger drives Ann to sign on to the Christopher Mitchell,
a whaling ship, to hunt down the man who “ruined” her.
At 18 she was convinved to leave her home in Rochester by a fellow who promised to marry her. They traveled a ways on
the Erie Canal before he left her alone and unmarried. With no future, she decided that man who did this must pay. For 8 months she served in one of the most dangerous
and vile of professions. First Fury is a different kind of love story.
