Love, Death, or Mermaid?

Read the first three chapters here (no cliffhangers, promise!)

Opportunity knocks on the humblest of doors. But it knocks only once.

When an overheard conversation leads to a hunt for a long-forgotten pirate’s treasure in the sunny tropics, Herbert can’t believe his luck. With shipmates including the charming if somewhat feline-featured Katie, a suave and dapper captain, and a hyper-competent crew, such an opportunity seems too good to be true.

And we all know how that usually turns out.

He soon discovers that said adventure vacation of a lifetime comes with minor downsides, such as being hunted by giant sea monsters. Including an alluring—if somewhat bloodthirsty—mermaid. Additionally, the term ‘lifetime’ refers to a significantly shorter time-frame than he envisioned.

Set sail on the high seas of Arvia! (Must supply own cutlass.)

A stand-alone novella (126 pages) on the world of Arvia, intended for adult or young adult readers.

A three chapter sneak peak is available here.

  1. I’m so far behind in reading – working for a living sucks lol. Looking forward to getting caught up on the new adventures. Mermaid lore is so fascinating, especially the Celtic selfie folk that can shed their skin on land. Or the kelpies haunting rivers and streams in horselike form.
