THE LAST MERMAN
At the dawn of the sixteenth century in Venice, as grimewater seeps into the Lagoon, a defiant young mermaid must live among the humans she loathes to rescue her little brother from captivity and to identify the forces determined to destroy the mer colony, Marea.
Not a Little Mermaid retelling--think Greta Thunberg but instead she’s a mermaid in 16th century Venice.
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.
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?
