Lady Marguerite Vadnay and her trusty automaton, Outil, have settled into life in New France rather well. Marguerite is top of the class at flight school and her future as an aerpilot is nearly secure. She has everything she wants— except a commission on the pirate hunting dirigible The Renegade. Using every card in her aristocratic arsenal, Marguerite wiggles her way onto the finest warship France has to offer. But as usual, Marguerite’s plans endanger the lives of those she holds dear— only this time no one else is going to save them. As Marguerite and Outil set off on a rescue mission they may not return from, she finally realizes it’s time to reorder her cogs.

This steampunk adventure is littered with facts from The Golden Age of Piracy and follows (not too closely) some of the lives and adventures of the brave men and women who sailed the seas as privateers, pirates and soldiers.

Lady Marguerite lives a life most 17th-century French girls can only dream of: money, designer dresses, suitors, and a secure future. Except she can’t quite commit to a life of dull luxury and she suspects she may be falling for her best friend Claude, a common smithy in the family's steam forge. When Claude leaves for New France in search of a better life, Marguerite decides to follow him and test her suspicions of love—only the trip proves to be more harrowing than she anticipated. Love, adventure, and restitution await her if she can survive the voyage.

Based on the true story of The Daughters of the King, Louis the XIV’s social program to settle the wilds of Canada with women of noble birth, Marguerite’s steampunk adventure follows in the footsteps of nearly one thousand brave women and girls who were rewarded handsomely for trekking across the pirate infested Atlantic to a strange land.

"The writing is solid and the world-building – that clever combination of historical detail and Ms. Statham’s imagination – is excellent."~ The Australia Times Books

Q & A with Leigh Statham


What books/authors have influenced your writing?
SO MANY! Too many to name. Today I’m crushing on Lois Lowry and Ray Bradbury. I always go back to the classics for inspiration.

Have you ever had one character you wanted to go one way with but after the book was done the character was totally different. 
Yes! In fact, those are the characters that usually end up dead. I’ve also had plans for characters to hook up or fall in love with each other, and then when the time came, it just didn’t feel right.

What was your favorite chapter (or certain part) in THE PERILOUS JOURNEY OF THE MUCH-TOO-SPONTANEOUS GIRL? 
My favorite part was when Marguerite meets Otetiani for the first time. He’s so awesome. Can’t wait to write more about him.

What was the hardest part to write in THE PERILOUS JOURNEY OF THE MUCH-TOO-SPONTANEOUS GIRL?
I don’t want to give too much away, but it was hard for me to decide how it should end. I had something in mind, but it was too easy, so I had to throw a few more road blocks in the way for our heroes. I’m pretty happy with the ending now, but it took a while to get there.

What’s you next project?
I have a scifi book out on sub right now, and this amazing idea for a steampunk novel based on a Broadway play. Can’t really say much more, but keep your eyes open for some awesomeness!

If you could write in another genre what would it be & why?
I’ve written in several other genres. I really enjoy scifi and even contemporary stories. Lately, I have been feeling a pull toward horror. I think I’ll go back there in a book or two and maybe kill some people off.
