Who is Teague de La Plaine?
Like any good writer, I’ve lived many lives. Once upon time I was a Marine Corps officer, a merchant sailor, a performer, and a globetrotting, seafaring, adventurous rapscallion. I am now an indie writer (and live near the sea with my wife and three little rascals) creating primarily on Substack. I’m also still a rapscallion.
