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.

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

Fictional Retribution

It's a good thing that fictional characters don't know anything about the authors that create them. Jayne,  the main character in my current book, seems so real to me that there are times I feel a little guilty putting her through all the horrible stuff in my manuscript. Jayne is a big, tough chic that I would NOT want to mess with in real life. If she knew I was the one responsible for all her troubles--she'd come after me, big time.

I think Adrianne, my main character from Forbidden Sea, would be willing to forgive me in time for all I did to her--but Jayne would just beat the crud out of me first and ask questions later. But that's what makes her such a fun character to write.
