Kela has heard tales of mermaids that supposedly inhabit the waters around her island, but she has never believed them. While diving with her father, she discovers a box, decrepit and forgotten. Hidden inside is a comb unlike any she has seen. On an impulse, she touches it and soon learns the power it holds to grant wishes, but at a price. When what was lost is not returned, fury from the depths threatens to rip away all she has.
My middle grade fantasy, Dark Tide, was written during NaNoWriMo 2013. I was inspired by my West Indian heritage and love of mermaid tales to write a story with a dark twist. I am currently working on revisions of that manuscript. Click the image on the left to visit my Pinterest inspiration board.
I have a few other projects in progress, including The Girl in the Tower, a middle grade fantasy I wrote during NaNoWriMo 2015.
