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

A Couple Wild Weeks!

Wow! What a couple of amazing weeks this has been. I've been doing a flurry of promotional visits and book signings around Utah and it has been so much fun. The pictures above were taken at my very first book launch at the King's English Bookshop. They had starfish cookies with teal green icing. Too bad I didn't have a chance to taste one. I was too busy signing and they went real fast. Last night I had another book event at the Provo City Library. I loved meeting all the wonderful people who came to support me. The seats were full to capacity and some people even stood up in the back to listen. I loved sharing Forbidden Sea and talking about how it was created. Afterward I got to sign books and talk to each visitor first hand. To me that was the best part of the whole evening. They sold out of copies of Forbidden Sea there were so many people there. The Mayor of Provo came. He even bought a copy of my book! Talk about an honor!
And it's not over yet. I've got more events scheduled for this month and I can't wait.
