A Ransom-Family Novel

Thomas R. Lawrence


Front Porch Press, LLC is excited to announce the publication of

Tom Lawrence’s most recent novel!



The Queen’s Captain is a fictional piece, with historical overtones, combining Tom’s passion for story-telling with his love of history.

The charming Will Ransom figured prominently in Tom’s first fictional novel, Jake’s Revenge, and will reappear in two forthcoming novels in the Mary Jo Thibodaux mystery series. In this historically set piece, however, we meet the Ransom family ancestors.

Love and war; life and death; friendship and jealousy. Queen Anne’s War in 1710 provides the backdrop for countless captivating dynamics to unfold in order to introduce Captain Miles Stuart Ransom—the Queen’s Captain.

The Queen’s Captain is now available in paperback at The Kindle version will be available soon.
