Welcome Aboard!


Joseph O'Steen writes the Nathan Beauchamp of the Royal Navy series. These Napoleonic War stories follow the naval career of a young British lad from a well to do family with a long line of naval officers. The series is a welcome addition to the nautical lore and serves as an entry level to the new reader of this genre by providing fast paced action without the often confusing details of sail and ship handling found in the traditional book of the genre.

St. Augustine

Pirate Tales from the

Black Raven


The nations oldest city, St. Augustine, Florida is steeped in the history of four nations, Spain, Britain, The Confederate States of American and the United Stated of America. Yet the old city was founded to defend the Spanish Treasure ships from pirates. For the first two hundred plus years, pirates and privateers had a dramatic effect on this rustic city. Now Black Raven Adventures and Joseph O'Steen brings you the high lights of those blood thirsty villains of the sea.

Why I Write

I fell in love with the sea at an early age and have always admired the men and ships of the age of sail. I consumed books more quickly than they could be written and published. While waiting for Mr. Alexander Kent's Second to None to be published. my wife, Chris, persuaded me to write my own sea stories. At about the same time at her suggestion  I became one of  eight members of the Yahoo Bolitho group who began  the Hart of Oaks role-playing site online We began as British naval officers waiting for orders. I  created Nathan Beauchamp, a young British Naval officer in 1803. Soon the online role-playing was just not enough, so I researched British naval histories and started to write the Nathan Beauchamp of the Royal Navy series.
