I am a writer too. I have one story that is historical fiction in places, but it is a different time period. I hope your story works out it sounds like something Id read. Just dont turn in to me and have 15 going at once then proceed to have writers block on ALL of them. lol.
Good luck and I hope to see it in print one day.
O'er the glad waters of the dark blue sea,
Our thoughts as boundless, and our souls as free,
Far as the breeze can bear, the billows foam,
Survey our empire, and behold our home!
