About the Book

2010 – New novel features an Elizabethan-era mariner with grand adventure and exotic locales.

On To Panamá

is released by author Stephen Chapin Kinnaman

This fast-paced nautical tale opens with the capture of Prince Michael, an English nobleman, whose foolhardiness has put himself and his country at the mercy of the Spanish. And he does so at the worst possible moment—at the height of pre-Armada tensions between England’s Protestant Queen Elizabeth and Spain’s most Catholic Majesty, King Philip II. With one of her favorite kinsmen in peril and relations between the feuding countries deteriorating, the queen demands his immediate rescue—and who better to save the day than master sailor and corsair Lionel Oakely?

When called upon by the queen’s emissary, Oakely must decide between pursing his own financial and domestic interests (including a fiery mistress eager to wed) or answering the call of his queen and his country. His decision to sail on to Panamá sets him on a course of mystery and adventure on the high seas and in the colorful West Indies. Oakley must contend with his own crew as well as the Queen’s representative, who poses mysteries of his own. Will the voyage culminate in the successful return of Prince Michael, or will Oakley meet his match at last? Stephen Kinnaman calls upon his own experience as an offshore and marine technology professional to tell a tale that is gripping and nautically detailed. The descriptions of the exotic locations Oakley visits are enhanced by Kinnaman’s personal experience with the various settings. Lionel Oakley is a great hero, and Kinnaman has created a memorable cast of characters set in a fascinating time in English history.
