Overview

Ann is in deadly peril. Out of a job, out of money, and out of luck. Harried and pursued, trapped under the waters of Puget Sound, death is reaching for her with hands of icy darkness.

But this night, Ann has had one small piece of luck. She’s been given a magical ring, along with the admonition, “Never take it off. Never tell anyone about it. And be ready for wonder.” And this night, deep under the water, the ring is blazing with light, like the incandescent heart of a star.

A frozen moment, a flick of light, and a new life begins, with new problems and dangers—including the fact that Ann seems to have become a mermaid.

That sort of thing is certain to get your attention. But Ann’s problems have multiplied. When David Nan lifts her onto his boat to protect her from a shark, her legs return and she finds herself in the arms of the most attractive man she’s ever encountered.

If only her clothing had reappeared along with her legs. It’s enough to make a were-mermaid dive back into the ocean.

I’m a storyteller. My skills at writing are subject to opinion, my punctuation has been called interesting, at best—but I am a storyteller.

I am, of course, many other things. In seven decades of living, there are great numbers of things that have attracted my attention. I am, for example, an electrician. I can also design, build, and install a range of things from stairs and railings to flooring, and tile backsplashes. I can even giftwrap a box from the inside, so to speak, by wallpapering the house.

I’m an engineer, one who has designed computers and computer systems; one of which—during the bad old days of the cold war—flew in the plane designated as the American President’s Airborne Command Post: The Doomsday Jet.

I’ve spent seven years as the chief-engineer of a company that built bar-code readers.

I spent thirteen of the most enjoyable years of my life as a scoutmaster, and three, nearly as good, as a cubmaster.

I joined the Air Force to learn jet engine mechanics, but ended up working in broadcast and closed circuit television, serving in such unlikely locations as the War Room of the Strategic Air Command, and a television station on the island of Okinawa.

I have been involved in sports car racing, scuba diving, sailing, and anything else that sounded like fun. I can fix most things that break, sew a fairly neat seam, and have raised three pretty nice kids, all of who are smarter and prettier than I am—more talented, too, thanks to the genes my wife kindly provided.

Once, while camping with a group of cubs and their families, one of the dads announced, “You guys better make up crosses to keep the Purple Bishop away.” When I asked for more information, the man shrugged and said, “I don’t really know much about the story. It’s some kind of a local thing that was mentioned on my last camping trip.” Intrigued, I wondered if I could come up with something to go with his comment about the crosses; something to provide a gentle terror-of-the-night to entertain the boys. The result was a virtual forest of crosses outside the boys’ tents. That was the event that switched on something within me that, now, more than twenty-five years later, I can’t seem to switch off.

Stories came and came… so easily it was sometimes frightening. Stories so frightening that one boy swore he watched my eyes begin to glow with a dim red light as I told them (it was the campfire reflecting from my glasses, but I didn’t tell him that).

Then, someone asked for a copy of one of my campfire stories, which brought me to the word processor. When that was finished, I wondered: could I write something other than technical articles and campfire stories? Something with dialog?

“Something with dialog,” when completed, led to: Can I write in the first person? Do an adventure? A romance?

Having finally sold a few novels (four, to date, the latest to Double Dragon) plus a handful of short stories, I am living proof that if you work at something for long enough you will eventually get it right.

Thought it was a good read. Liked how the author made this book free so you can decide if you like it.

This 180 page book, is book one, of a series of six. This is the only free one. It is written in the first person. I was looking for something different to read and boy, did I ever find it. I was completely out of my element with this one. I did not know what to expect. The book has some slow spots. It reminded me of the movie, Aquamarine. Overall, it was a decent read. I think if I were more into this type of fantasy genre, I could have rated it higher. I was going to give it one star, but I let my 15 year old grand daughter read it and she gave it a five, so we split the difference. AD

Awesome. I swear, when i picked up this book, i thought it was going to be another predictable ya romance written in first person, with an annoying heroine, and all those other unapreciated adjectives that comes with reading a ya romance book. But i was presently surprised and i have to admit, i love every minute spend reading this book, so much so, that i am definitely buying the others. Thank you for such a wonderful read

Meh. Story could have been really interesting but fell flat. Moved too fast where it should have gone slow and too slow where it should have moved fast. Poor character development. Overuse of commas. Detail inconsistencies. Unnecessary use of swear words. I only finished it to see what happened and was let down. Nice try but overall, meh.

I was looking for a light read to pass some waiting time, this book delivered and more. I was very engaged in both the characters and the story line. The main character didn't react in expected ways which really is good thing! I recommend this to young adults.

I was not quite sure if this would be yet another free book that I end up archiving after 2 or 3 chapters. The story was good. I read this pretty quickly because it was not only NOT boring, but I just had to know if Ann and David would finally get together or not. Thank you for this wonderful story!!

This was a great book. I loved the descriptive telling of the new life of a woman who found herself a mermaid. The complexities and new decisions one would have to make, however dangerous they may be, to tell or not to tell, who do you trust? I did find it a bit unnerving that she trusted a little to easily, WOULD someone trust that easily? I wouldnt think so it was all too new and I would be terrified of my new situation. However she proved to be braver than I, except when it came to love, which leads me to the only negative review, I would have liked a little MORE romance between David and Ann it would have been a better read had they been more of an item/team through the book a little more interaction. What they did have was great. The end was great and cannot wait to read Jens story! A wonderful, magical, mermaid tail! Pun intended. Get this book.

This book was magic all the way thur. A independent girl who doesnt trust, and a sweet man who is truely good. The charaters and world building gave just enough to allow the reader to picture the events in your mind.
