The stunning revelation that his father became none other than the infamous Captain Nemo shakes a young man’s world to its foundation. This fictional memoir recounts his life after a tragic war destroys his family and nearly kills him. Learning the truth about his father years later compels him to make a difficult choice: will he keep his comfortable but unspectacular middle-class Victorian existence or forsake everything to continue Nemo’s work of exploring the seas and aiding the oppressed?
Researched to be true to the spirit of Verne’s source novels (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Mysterious Island) and his original ideas, The Nautilus Legacy moves from Europe to America to the depths of the sea and beyond. In addition to its literary and adventure themes, it is also the very personal story of an insecure man who struggles with the life of his father and their unfinished relationship.

A life-long naval enthusiast, Lewis has been thrilled for as long as he can remember by stories true and fictional about ships and the men who crewed them.
The writing bug bit Lewis as a child, and his first “creative efforts” were a series of two-paragraph ghost stories written on his family’s typewriter. Over the years he became a fan of writers like Clive Cussler, Alastair MacLean, and of course Jules Verne, whose most famous character, Captain Nemo, he has lovingly refashioned for a new generation of adventures. He lives in Texas with his family, bunches of LEGO, and shelves full of ship models.
