About the Author
This is my first published book, although I have been writing novels since age thirteen. I was inspired to become a writer after hearing how J.K. Rowling went from living in a tiny flat to become the modern queen of literature and with my father encouraging me to pursue what I love. I enjoy Sherlock Holmes, blogging, tweeting, horse-riding, travelling, drawing and pretending that I’m a rock god on my guitar when no one is watching.

I was not sure what to expect when I started reading Undertow as I never read the synopsis or saw the book cover so went in completely blind. It started off with Zoe an Australian teenage girl on her way to college in New York, but the plane crashes while Zoe is in the toilet. The next thing she knows is waking up next to a handsome guy Josiah who has bitten her. She freaks asking why he had bit her and he explains that she had died during the plane crash and that he had bitten her to make her live again, however she is only part human now and part merman! Josiah’s father tells Josiah that Zoe must go back to her mother and father as they will be worried about her, where really he just does not want her with them. So Zoe goes back as the only survivor on the plane crash. Years later Zoe has a visit from Josiah and he asks for her help as mermen are dying and they need to find the reason why and to stop it. I do not want to give anything else away but it is a thrilling story with love, action, mystery and betrayal. The story was really good it flowed very well and it kept me gripped throughout. I would definitely recommend it.
