MERMAID CURSE

DIVE INTO A WORLD OF MYSTICAL ADVENTURE...

The Silver Dolphin and The Black Pearl, books 1 and 2 of my new children's quartet, are now in the shops!

Mermaid Curse tells the story of Lizzy Baxter, an adopted girl who discovers the astounding truth about her real identity, and embarks on a dangerous quest beyond her wildest imagining. Like my earlier Sea Horses quartet, Mermaid Curse is set in Cornwall—from the bustle of a busy fishing port on the shores of Mount's Bay to the magical tranquility of the Isles of Scilly...and the mysterious undersea world that lies between.

The four Mermaid Curse books are published by Puffin at £4.99 each. Click here for a 'taster' chapter from The Silver Dolphin...

On this page you can see the stunning covers created by renowned artist Zdenko Bašic.
