Chicago native Kevin Charles Smith never outgrew his fascination with Peter Pan, pirates and high seas adventure. After a 35-year career, culminating as Kellogg Company’s Senior Vice President of Marketing Services, Smith set sail on his second passion, combining his long-imagined stories with meticulous research to create the Bilge Rat, Pirate Adventurer series for young adults and mature readers alike. Demon Pirate, the third book, debuts September 19 – International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Smith and his wife Pat now reside in Florida, closer to the sea.
