Jan and Sara were already friends when one day they decided they wanted to write children's stories and it would be more fun to write them together. That was 18 years ago. Since then they've written over 160 stories - including some about ghosts, football, ghosts playing football and naughty gargoylz. Jan lives in Essex with her family and Sara lives in London with hers. They both have black cats who completely rule their lives.

Sam Silver lives near the sea and enjoys beach-combing for pirate treasures. When he finds an ancient message in a bottle he thinks it will make a great new relic for his collection, but the bottle holds a very special secret...
Inside is a gold doubloon which whisks Sam back in time to 1706. Suddenly he's on board a pirate ship - the Sea Wolf - surrounded by her fearsome captain and crew and sailing the Caribbean Sea. If Sam can't think of a very good reason why they should keep him alive, he'll be forced to walk the plank!
When the monster suddenly appears and attacks the Sea Wolf, Sam and Fernando are swept overboard! Can they escape and defeat this new threat or are they destined to become fish food?
There's a new pirate aboard the Sea Wolf and he's popular with the crew, but Sam is suspicious - why is the new recruit so interested in Captain Blade? And how can Sam convince his friends that they're falling into a deadly trap?
When the Sea Wolf runs aground on a remote desert island, the crew are terrified of the legendary dragon who breathes smoke and fire from the mountain. Can the pirates escape with their lives?
