File 11061Avast! Did ye know that September 19th is International Talk Like A Pirate Day? Well it is. (Or, as historical fiction writer and resident pirate expert Kelly Gardiner has previously pointed out - pirate talk as we know it was invented by Robert Louis Stevenson in his book Treasure Island. I suppose "International Talk Like A Robert Louis Stevenson Pirate Day" just didn't make the cut.)

As the pirates sing, "I plunder stuff but I'm no crook - now write about me in a book."

I'm a pirate!
