What lies beneath the waves

I’m so excited to share the cover of Enchanted Waters, a collection of YA fantasy short stories coming this Summer!

If you love The Little Mermaid and Pirates of the Caribbean (but probably not Waterworld – remember that? Sorry Costner, it was rubbish), you’ll definitely find a story that’s perfect for you in this anthology.

My story Daughter of the Selkie King is a prequel tie in to The Fair Queen, following Delta, a girl living in the Ondine Kingdom and wrestling with some pretty relatable issues. Not least of which is the fact she lives surrounded by water and can’t actually swim.

She feels like she doesn’t quite fit in anywhere, her mother is keeping secrets that could change everything she’s ever known, and now a strange boy has appeared out of nowhere and he seems to know more about Delta than she knows herself.

With water-magic wielding Fair, selkie royalty and a whole lot of teenage angst, DotSK is a quick but intense read that will throw you into the deep end of the Fair Realm.

Available to preorder now for just $2.99 on Amazon Kindle, Enchanted Waters will be released on 16 July 2021 in both ebook and paperback, and will be fully illustrated by an incredibly talented illustrator!

Not only that, but all profits from sales of Enchanted Waters will go to support Oceana, an incredible charity working to clean the world’s oceans and protect marine life. So you’ll not only get a collection of fantastic stories by bestselling and up-and-coming indie authors, you’ll also be helping to save the world. What’s not to love!

What’s your favourite water-fantasy story? My mum wanted to name me Madison, after the mermaid in Splash, so that movie has a special place in my heart.

Happy reading lovely folk!
