William Jackson was a phenomenal storyteller. Originally from Honduras, he brought the world two amazing tales of fiction based on real events. "And the Sea Shall Hide Them" recounts the terrifying tale of a clandestine murder at sea where many perished.

Very compelling story and an historical setting the truly takes you back to those days. William Jackson passed away a few years after we published his books, and in placing them on this website, we honor his memory and celebrate his life. Both books would truly make spellbinding movies.
