Water Dance – Romantic Fantasy

Water dance cover

     Water Dance is the first of six linked novels, detailing the adventures of the women chosen by The Ring: a magic circlet of stone that has been passed from woman to woman over the centuries.
     Many stories owe their existence to a small “what if.” In this case it was a stray thought of: “What if a normal human found herself changed to mermaid form, then tossed into the ocean unprepared and confused? What would it be like, and how would she react? And, what might go wrong? As it turns out, quite a lot, beginning with the fact that the traditional Disney seashell bra hasn’t been provided, though a handsome man has.
     This story was marvelous fun to write. And of course I fell in love with my heroine, as I always do. I hope you will, too.
     Because you probably don’t know my name or my writing, I’ve elected to make this first volume of the series free, as an audition, so to speak—to prove that I can spin an interesting tale, or in this case, a mermaid’s tail.
     Ann Nan is in deadly peril. Out of a job, out of money, and out of luck. Harried and pursued, trapped under the waters of Puget Sound, death is reaching for her with hands of icy darkness.
     But this night, Ann has had one small piece of luck. She’s been given, The Ring, along with the admonition, “Never take it off. Never tell anyone about it. And be ready for wonder.” And this night, deep under the water, the ring is blazing with light, like the incandescent heart of a star.
     A frozen moment, a flick of darkness, and a new life begins, with new problems and dangers—including the fact that Ann seems to have become a mermaid.
     That sort of thing is certain to get your attention. But Ann’s problems have multiplied. When David Nan lifts her onto his boat to protect her from a shark, her legs return and she finds herself in the arms of the most attractive man she’s ever encountered. 
Now, if only her clothing had reappeared along with her legs. It’s enough to make a were-mermaid dive back into the ocean.
You can find Water Dance on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, the iTunes store, and Smashwords. Enjoy it, with my complements.

    I loved your book, Water Dancer! I think the idea of passing on a ring is wonderful, everything seems overdone these days, and that is a different idea. I’ve heard of it, but not used in this manner. I like how you carried out the mermaid plot – I’ve tried several mermaid stories, but SO MANY of them just took from other story’s plots, such as Twilight, and that is SO frustrating!
    I have an interesting proposition. I absolutely love reading, I am something of an English nut, and I am forever wishing I could fix grammatical errors in the books I read. This may come as a surprise, but I am going to leave my email address with you. I am fully willing to do something like this for free, number one, because I enjoy it, number two, because it would give me GREAT satisfaction, and number three, because I dearly love to read! My address is xxxxxx. I’ve never done this before, but I’ve wanted to for a long time.
    Thanks for writing your stories, and thanks for reading my little request.
    By the way, I was looking for somewhere to reach you, and was sent to your biography. I posted there first (please excuse my honest mistake!) and then saw this link at the top of the page.

    You have an amazing talent. I thoughly enjoyed reading WATER DANCE. Very well written. It flows nicely and leaves the reader wanting more. I love your style of writting. I wanted to be Ann through out the book.

      Thank you for the kind words. One of the perks of being a writer is that I had to be her as I wrote, in order to know her mind and her intentions—David, too. Writing fiction is the only profession I know where you can be staring at nothing and honestly tell people who ask what you’re doing, “Working.”
