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

I Guess It Must Be Good

Today I was working on my newest story on my lunch break and one of my coworkers sat down and wanted to hear some of what I was writing. I read just one little part of my ghost story (a rather creepy part actually) to her. This was the first time I let anyone see this story so I was a little worried what she would think. While I was reading, one of my other co-workers came over and started to listen. Before I knew what was happening, they had set up an appointment to come over to my house on Saturday so they could hear more of the story. I warned them that it doesn't have an ending yet--but that doesn't seem to matter much to them. So I guess the story must be half way decent after all if two library employees can't get enough of it. It not like they don't have access to real published books or anything! : ) It was rather satisfying all the same.
