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

Forbidden Sea Sequel?

My most recent manuscript is DONE! Completed. It has been sent off to my agent. Now the waiting game begins. I hate that part of being an author. Waiting and waiting to hear back from publishers--sometimes for years. *big sigh*

While I wait, I've begun work on two new projects. One is a new book, an alternate universe fantasy that I've started writing. The other is a project that I've been secretly working on for quite some time.

What is this secret project, you ask? Only the SEQUEL to Forbidden Sea. Yes, you read that right. The sequel has been written (as in, all done and completed)--and is now going through the extensive editing process that always comes before a book can be published. I've been dying to let you all know about this project  as I worked on it, but knew I needed to wait until it was far enough along in the process to announce it. The best part about the sequel is that you get to finally meet the Sea Prince himself! Trust me, you are all going to swoon.

The sequel is not being published by Scholastic (the publishing house that did Forbidden Sea), so this is all new territory for me. I'm hoping the sequel will be published sometime early next year--but an official release date is still up in the air at this point. So keep checking back on this page to get more information as it becomes available!

Everyone *squee* with me in delight and share your excitement and love in comments below.
