The first book in a novella trilogy, I wrote Discovery several years ago. It’s hard to believe that was back in 2016! Where does the time go.

I didn’t exactly know where the story was going when I started the first draft. I was surprised it took place during the 1860s and that dark and bloody time. Yet, it didn’t really have anything to do with the period.

One man, pressed into serving a cause he’s still not sure he believes in, is shipped to Ft. McCree near Pensacola, Florida during the onslaught of the invasion.

But, as history has accounted for us, the Fort is already doomed.

He discovers that Mermaids are real. There’s something about this brunette woman of the sea, it’s nothing evil.

Everything about her is simple and pure and untouched by mankind’s hatred and corruption.

He has a choice, she gives it to him.

Depending on his decision, this trilogy could begin or end with him. I’ll let you figure that one out.

Make sure you order this first book in the Mermaid Seas trilogy.

And make sure you tune back in tomorrow for the second installment, Forecast. Several generations later, an English History teacher uncovers a massive secret that blows his “normal” life out of the water…or is that into the water.
