THE GLIMMERING SEA
It's 1501 and near Venice, Italy, 16-year-old mermaid Armida is torn between saving the ocean she loves and the restrictive traditions of her mer colony. And she doesn't even want to think about silver-scaled Rinaldo who has plans to search for his mother on land.
A THEORETICAL LIFE Anthology Series
Each novel is stand-alone and they all center girls. They are set in the ultra-near future with a recognizable world. I take the phrase “we’re not there yet” from STEM articles and imagine what it will look like when we are there. And, of course, history and art will be part of each story.
Fifteen-year-old Savanna, a quick-tempered loner, prickles at any threat, real or imagined. She fears she will never escape the pull of Earth’s gravity or, more generally speaking, most people. Without them, the secrets in her great-grandmother's diary from WWII Italy may remain buried, and her grandfather could be lost to her forever. Set in a secret government facility located in Green Bank, WV, Savanna faces challenges from near and far (if you catch my meaning.)
Rylie’s migraines trigger more time-slips. She never knows where she’ll end up or which ancestor she’ll encounter. Will the time-slips be the key to mending the broken pieces in the people around her or will they only prove she's crazy?
