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 School Visit I Will Never Forget!

(c) Rebecca Stephens 2011

I visited Syracuse Art Academy on Tuesday morning. I spoke to a group of over 300 students. (7th-9th grade) There were a lot of writers and illustrators in the audience so it was extra fun to talk to them about how to create a story and get it published! One girl, named Rebecca Stephen, even made a poster (pictured above) of Jendayi to advertise for the event. Isn't it beautiful? : ) I especially like all the lovely detail she put into the tiara! Click on the picture if you'd like to see it in even more up close and personal. Thanks Rebecca (and to all the Syracuse Art Academy students) who made my visit one I will never forget!

Is the book trailer for Forbidden Sea available online? I am dying to see it.

There have been complications with obtaining a mermaid tail so that the trailer can be finished. Most of the trailer has been filmed, but we can't finished it until the tail comes! Because it is the dead of winter here--we can't exactly ask an actress to go swimming around right now in order to get the shots either. Believe me, I'm dying to see the final product myself. :)
