More About Author William Westbrook 

Westbrook has had an astonishing career in marketing and advertising. He was one of the founding fathers of placing modern day Irvington, Virginia, onto the map. His re-creation of the Hope and Glory Inn, creation of The Local, Trick Dog Café, etc., and his inauguration of a winery in Irvington, “White Fences” (now The Dog & Oyster), was just the foundational stage in his reinvention of this glorious small town we call home. Westbrook also created public art to promote his businesses; the Dog & Oyster Vineyard has 25 foot corkscrews indicating its heritage; our Irvington dentist has its portico held up by the biggest toothbrushes you have ever seen, and the roof of Trick Dog has a giant bone created from shingles.

But this was all in his former life. Now he is to be known as the Bermuda Privateer, creator of a series of novels whose hero is Nicholas Fallon, a 16th century scallywag, who plies the seas between America and Bermuda.
