“My goal in writing this book was to spur the imagination of young readers,” says Eddie. “Boys especially. I wanted to create within them a desire to read and set sail for a life of adventure on the high seas.” Note: Eddie sails and surfs and sometimes works.
“I also want to help kids (and adults) who suffer with epilepsy. That’s why I created a “Heroes Among Us” page in honor of Ricky Bradshaw, the hero of the book. Ricky suffers from epilepsy. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the Epilepsy Foundation. For each book sold, the publisher will donate a few pieces of eight - half a sandy dollar – to Ricky’s Hero fund.”
Eddie says, regardless of how well the book sells, if it helps others become “Seizure Smart!” and raises money to fight epilepsy, then it’s a success.
