Shadow in the Sea

Readers will return to Windwaithe Island once again. When sixteen-year-old Sadelyn Hanson washes up on the shores of Windwaithe Island, her beauty and the strange marks on her wrist make superstitious locals suspect she is a mermaid. Feigning amnesia, Sade hides a far worse secret: she was sailing to her own murder trial when she was thrown overboard by the real killer, the cunning and cruel Captain Westwood.

Sade's quiet effort to rebuild her life on the island is threatened when she meets an actual young merman. Unable to speak his language, Sade still longs for the warm companionship he offers, despite the locals' dire legends about merfolk and their dark magic. But her confused feelings for the impossible boy become the least of her problems when Captain Westwood's ship docks at Windwaithe. With nowhere to escape, Sade must trust in the one person who doesn't fear the merfolk. A woman who had dealings with them herself—years ago

Great News! Gotta Share

I have exciting news I've been wanting to share here on this blog, and now I officially can. Forbidden Sea is about to go international. Scholastic UK has picked up the book and it will be published in the UK in August 2010. They even made a new cover. I'm not allowed to post it on this blog yet, but when I can, we'll all have to take a vote and see which cover everyone likes the most. The best part of all is that I was already planning my very first trip to London for later this year. Talk about fantastic coincidences. I could not have planned it better if I tried.
