Overview

Kennedy never envisioned a Navy Seal like him.

1967. Vietnam. Fat-boys and comp-B bombs explode aboard the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Livingstone killing thousands. Everyone dies if the carrier sinks, unless one SEAL – one selkie – puts the lives of humans ahead of his need to keep his secret.

Inspired by the true story of the U.S.S. Forrestal fire of 1967, award-winning author Kelly A. Harmon weaves alternate-history and fairytale into this action-packed and emotionally charged story.

Praise:

"Selk-Skin Deep" by Kelly A. Harmon is a very well-written, harrowing story of an accident that didn’t have to happen aboard an aircraft carrier during the Vietnam war. The selkie uses his advantage to try and save the ship and its crew. Ms. Harmon has written an action packed, suspenseful account of a naval battle with a poignant ending.” ~ Tangent Magazine

Meet the Author

Kelly A. Harmon used to be a newspaper reporter.

She found reporting to be by turns exciting (for example, covering a murder trial) and excruciatingly boring (for example, covering itty-bitty town council meetings). Most other stories managed to fall in between those extremes on a sliding scale of interesting.

When she's not crazed with the need to freelance, she writes fantasy and dark fantasy with the occasional science fiction piece. Her short story, Lies, short-listed for the Aeon Award and her novella, Blood Soup, won Fantasy Gazetteers Novella Contest.

She spends her time commuting to the day job and writing all night.
