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

Book Review!

Another great book review, this time by The Lost Entwife. (Who else just loves this delightfully whimsical name?) Every once in a while an author will find a reviewer that completely understands what it is what they were trying to communicate when writing their book. A real kindred spirit. Thanks for taking the time to write about Forbidden Sea, Lost Entwife. You actually brought tears to my eyes as I read it! Click here to read the full review.

That is the best review of your book I have ever read! She described it so perfectly! I couldn’t have said it better myself! Your book, seemed like one of the classic fairytales, but a new tale that was so fascinating! I think it was your book, and as the review stated the little romance put into it that made me want to go read those series like Anne Of Green Gables, and the friendship between Gilbert and Anne. Just as an example. So funny actually, when I first saw the cover of your book it frightened me as well! I was volunteering at the library as I do every Thursday and had just finished covering the book and was trying to decide whether or not to display it in our Juvenile books section. I was afraid it was another young adult, vampire like story! So, I put it on that shelf, and left it there all day. Nobody checked it out, so before leaving I went over and looked inside and to my surprise found out it was a mermaid story! So I took it home. And after the first few pages I was hooked! Look at me, rambling off again. Do all writers tend to say too much? Well, actually I’m more like a wanna be writer. Anyway, thank you so very much for sharing that review. Anxiously awaiting your second book! -Hannah

Since I am a librarian I hang out in libraries a lot myself. And just like you, I always find the best books on the displays that are supposed to be for library patron to take. Thank you, Hannah for taking the time to put my book out where people could see it! Is it just me, or do lots of writers hang out around libraries? When we're not writing--I guess we are reading.
