Pirate Queens: #9 of 10: Winnie Flapjack



Pirate Queens: #9 of 10

Winnie Flapjack

The main character, of course, of Random Magic, and a fictional pirate - at least, a girl of distinctly piratical disposition; she’s feisty,
resourceful, inventive, and a scrapper.

Orphaned at birth, with a secretly tender heart and boundless loyalty,
she’s a born fighter and doesn’t hesitate to kill to protect anything
or anyone she cares about.

She’s inclined to use her head to think her way out of tricky
situations, but if wit and cunning fail, she’s not at all averse to
using her fists.

In Random Magic, she encounters a
bloodthirsty crew of pirates and bests them with magic.

Fate - and even that cheerful companion of Death, Baron Samedi, whom
we also meet in the book, clearly mean her to die - but Winnie has
other plans.

Written by her own hand, her true fate is to survive and eventually
win her own place on the Seven Seas…


You can see a wonderful art doll design of Winne Flapjack and other pirate queens at Liana's Paper Doll Blog
as part of the Queens of the Sea series during Random Magic Tour: Pirates! in an art gallery of designs
based on the life stories of famous pirate queens.

You can find all the in-depth Pirate Queens bios (10 of them), and
find the matching design doll for each pirate queen, in the Queens of
the Sea series, listed on the tour schedule.

You can also win one of the Queens of the Sea doll designs, dated and
signed by the artist. You can play to win HERE
and good luck!
