About the Author

Demelza Carlton has always loved the ocean, but on her first snorkelling trip she found she was afraid of fish.

She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray-drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below.

Sensationalist spin? No - Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all.

Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.

The Ocean's Gift series was her first foray into fiction, followed by the Nightmares trilogy. She swears the Mel Goes to Hell series ambushed her on a crowded train and wouldn't leave her alone.

Maria’s quest is still not over and is only set to get harder as she pursues William. She is heartbroken when he won’t even acknowledge her and the reader feels her pain and confusion at his cruel behaviour. The author skilfully moulds Will’s character into something different, so that we are fooled into wondering why Maria would persist with him. In later novels there were references to Maria’s time as a cave dragon and it rounded the whole series off for me to be able to go back and understand what that meant. As well as being a fantastically detailed and well-researched series, this is a beautiful illustration of the old Australia and a credit to the country’s chequered history which is pulled out for scrutiny. It is also a love story at heart and one which will capture anyone with a soft spot for romance and an interest in the unusual. It’s not a prissy mermaid series full of necklace making and fish kissing - if there were mermaids, this is how I imagine they would be, part dolphin, part piranha.
