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

This is for All You Scott Westerfeld Fans!
























I was invited as an author to attend the Teen Book Fest for Provo City Library this year. The keynote speaker was Scott Westerfeld.

(Can I just say here how much I LOVED his Leviathan series!)

His speech was not just informative but it was hilarious as well. For those of you who love Scott Westerfeld and his books as much as I do, click the link below to see a video of his keynote speech that day. The introduction at the beginning has her introducing the other authors at the event. Listen carefully and you will hear my name called out!

I was there too. It was a cool event. Do you mind me asking how long in advance the library had to book Scott Westerfield? On some of these big authors' websites I've seen their calendars and have been blown away by how far out they're scheduled (and how expensive it is to have them come.)

Oh man. I wanted to go to this SO BAD!
