Something strange is happening on Battleship Island! At first, strange lights flickered on the island. Then they were gone. Two men carrying flashlights appeared. Then they quickly sped away in their boat. A few days later, the men came back. What were they doing on the island? Could they be hiding a secret? Jeff Douglas and his pals are plunged into a series of scary adventures as they discover the real truth about the island. An old shack with a secret underground room, hidden treasures, a spooky house, dangerous thieves, and several narrow escapes, reveal the island's past, and teach the boys a valuable lesson in friendship, courage and determination. Intruders on Battleship Island is the first book in the series, The Bayshore Mysteries. Be sure to watch for the second book in the series, The Secret Graveyard.

I gleaned my inspiration from the book's setting. The island, mentioned in the book, was the site of a Civil War Battery during the Battle of Mobile Bay. In the 60's a hermit named, Battleship Pete, lived on it. I felt this setting, along with an interesting history, would make a fascinating story.
