Chris Gregoire

Creek of Bones

Web site

Kev MacGuire is dying. Crabbing comforts him, and one day he catches human bones and a strange, gold medallion. When it turns out to be Incan, Kev and friends investigate how jewelry once stolen by conquistadors ended up near the Chesapeake.

If tales found on an old plantation are true, Blackbeard and his pirates looted treasure from a wrecked Spanish galleon. Along with liquid drawn from the Fountain of Youth.

Kev and friends search for the valuables yet dismiss the Fountain as fantasy. But when a centuries-old cure makes him a believer, the lighthearted quest becomes a race for survival.

Chris Gregoire lives near the Chesapeake Bay.

When not writing or having fun with family and friends, he is obsessed with catching and eating blue crabs. The proud Virginia Tech alum hung up his corporate boots a few years ago to try his hand at a novel.

Creek of Bones is the result of that effort.
