She just lost her heart to the ocean…
Ex-hacker, Cassie Easton, has just made out with her boss—mistake #1. And he’s just told her he’s engaged—mistake #2. She thinks her heart might have just been shredded for good.
The idea of going back to work with him after that is humiliating enough, but things just keep getting worse. Sean’s not acting like the man she knows and loves. She barely recognizes him anymore. Something fishy is going on, and Cassie reverts to her criminal ways to find out why sexy Sean O’Callaghan is dating an old trout and running scared.
When it turns out to be the mystic forces of the ocean that’s screwing up her love life, she wonders if she’s finally lost her mind. If she can just survive a wasted wizard, a jealous sea witch and Selkie lore, maybe she’ll get to fall in love, assuming she doesn’t get arrested first.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I’ve written in a few genres, but I always come back to fantasy or speculative fiction because I love the freedom of the genre. In fantasy fiction, there are no limits on your creativity. You can create new worlds, new rules, and then break all of them if you want to. There’s something quite special about what comes from an imagination that isn’t chained down by reality. Plus, the adventures are great fun to write.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Write every day, even if it’s just a few hundred words. Creativity is like a muscle. If you work it out regularly enough, it can do superhuman things.
Also, spend some time learning about editing. I see learning about editing as a rite of passage for most authors.You need to understand about driving your main conflict, setting up your story structure and using active sentences. It takes time, but it’s worth it in the long run because you will tell better stories.
Avoid people who offer you the moon and the stars, but don’t deliver anything. Words are lovely things, but they are often used by con men to steal from you. Judge every business proposition by the reality of it not the spin on it, and leave poetic promises for the pages of fiction.
Finally, don’t let anything make you give up. The publishing world has some disturbing things in it. Get over them and move on. Keep writing if you love it, and don’t let anything get in your way. Success isn’t easy or even a sure thing, but you keep going no matter what because writing is what you love, and nothing can take that away from you unless you let it.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always loved the ocean. Being near it often feels like a magical experience to me, so my inspiration was the magic of the ocean on this story.
