Author Robin Lloyd

Robin Lloyd holding a painting of his ancestor, Elisha Ely Morgan.

When prominent journalist Robin Lloyd began researching his ancestor Captain Elisha Ely Morgan, he never imagined writing a book, but after poring over family records and historical accounts of life in America following the War of 1812, he realized that he had the makings of a rich seafaring story full of intrigue. At age 16, Ely Morgan set out to find what had happened to his long lost brother. Confronted with his brother’s likely murder, an illicit slave-trading ring, and betrayal, Morgan must decide how strongly he really would like to solve his family’s darkest mystery.

The Maritime Author Series continues February 12, March 12, and April 23.
