Interview with Tarrin P. Lupo

Pirates of Savannah: The Birth of Freedom in the Low CountryWhat is Pirates of Savannah about?
Pirates of Savannah is a historical fiction novel about the birth of liberty in the south. It takes place during pre-Revolutionary War age, truly a fascinating time in history that has been greatly ignored by other authors. At its heart, it is a tale of prisoners, refugees and society’s casts offs all joining together to escape from government tyranny and discover a path to liberty. Find out how a group of oppressed colonists gain the courage to start defying authority and begin planning a revolution from British control. It is a gritty, vivid account of what life was like in the 1700's and is loaded with real, obscure historical events that time erased and buried. Follow the group of freedom seekers as their adventure takes them through Savannah, the Florida Keys, St. Augustine, Charles Towne and Cape Fear, as well as many other towns of the Low Country. Most importantly it is a fun read loaded with action.

Where did you get the idea for your book?
I am a history nerd and I wanted to write something that was a Historical about Savannah.  I realized almost nobody had written about the time period before the the revolution.  I thought a historical fiction would be a lot more fun then history.

How did you come up with the title?
I wanted to keep the title as simple as I could and keep it marketable.  The word Pirates and Savannah are both excellent words to market with.

Who designed the cover?
My illustrators are Ruby Hilliard and Scott Motley 

When did you write your first book and how old were you?
I wrote my first book but it was highly plagiarized from the Hobbit and made zero sense.
Although I have been writing non fiction for five years to sell, I did not write fiction until last year.

What is your favorite book?
My favorite book is The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams was just so wonderfully quirky and clever.
