Excerpt

dil;or a quisesse furtar, que ella daria ordem como se fosse com elle, como deu, & a cobrou, & levou pera Portugal, que estava de Mouros, & a foy pór junto da Cidade do Porto, & junto do Rio Douro, sobre o lugar que agora chamão Gaya, onde Almançor tinha fortaleza, & paços, dos quaes oje em dia se vem os alicerces, & fundamentos. O que vendo Ramiro, ordenou demproviso tres Gales de armada, & com ellas veo aportar, a Sam João da Foz, mea legoa do porto, & sendo de noyte com ellas se entrou por o Rio Douro, sem serem sentidas dos Mouros, & cobertas de ramos por não serem vistas, tanto que amanheceo, Ramiro se pos em trajos de romeiro, & sayo em terra deixado em sinal aos seus, que se ouvissem tanger h[~u]a buzina que consigo levava lhe acudissem. E assi se foy guiando pera os paços deste Mouro, & antes disso chegou a h[~u]a fonte, onde com elle veo ter h[~u]a Moura, que vinha buscar hum pucaro de agoa, pera a mesma Gaya

J.J. White
Apart from being able to surf (the ocean, not the web) and singing and whistling at the same time, J.J. White is an amazing writer who knows how to draw his readers in and keep them at the edge of their seats. His latest book, Deviant Acts, is no exception and deals with a ex-soldier/heroin addict who finds himself in a situation where he needs to play the hero. As our author of the day, White reveals how relatives of his inspired this book and why his friends call his wife "Saint Pam."
