A Mermaid’s Tale

As a native to the Northwest, I grew up both in Seattle and on Whidbey Island. I love everything sand, surf and sun! It is my love for these things and my daughter Laurie’s love for mermaids that A Mermaid’s Tale, Melanie’s story, was born.

family fun in the sand and sun

Melanie’s story begins with her love of everything pink and shiny! She and her family visit a beach somewhere on one of the nearby islands here in the Pacific Northwest for some family fun in the sand and sun of their own. Melanie meets a friendly mermaid named Selina and together they are off on an adventure that Melanie will never forget!

If you are a child you will have an exciting time as you “join” Melanie on her adventure with her new friend Selina and the rest of the exciting friends she’ll meet along the way. Adults will enjoy reading this fun filled story to their children and maybe find their love for adventure all over again!
