I’m excited to announce that the IWSG anthology Masquerade: Oddly Suited has been released today and you can order it here!
This Insecure Writer’s Support Group anthology features ten young adult romance stories, one of which is my story “Sea of Sorrows”! You will find historical, contemporary, paranormal, sci-fi and steampunk in this book…a little bit of everything!
I’m thrilled to be working with Dancing Lemur Press and the nine other authors involved. Everyone has been so friendly and supportive and I can’t thank them enough. It’s wonderful to have some new writing friends to chat to and learn from.
About Masquerade: Oddly Suited
Find love at the ball…
Can a fake dating game show lead to love? Will a missing key free a clock-bound prince? Can a softball pitcher and a baseball catcher work together? Is there a vampire living in Paradise, Newfoundland? What’s more important—a virtual Traveler or a virtual date to the ball?
Ten authors explore young love in all its facets, from heartbreak to budding passion. Featuring the talents of L.G. Keltner, Jennifer Lane, C.D. Gallant-King, Elizabeth Mueller, Angela Brown, Myles Christensen, Deborah Solice, Carrie-Anne Brownian, Anstice Brown, and Chelsea Marie Ballard.
Hand-picked by a panel of agents and authors, these ten tales will mystify and surprise even as they touch your heart. Don your mask and join the party…

About my Story “Sea of Sorrows”
What could a shapeshifting siren know about love?
When ocean-dwelling shapeshifter Mairg is mistaken for Erik’s missing fiancée, she reluctantly agrees to help him find his love in order to protect her sisters. Erik gives her hope of a life free from killing, and she soon finds herself falling for him.
But her search for Aisla dredges up memories that
Mairg’sguardian, the sea hag, would rather forget. Will Mairg fight against her own kin to save the girl Erik loves? Or will she embrace her monstrous nature and keep him for herself?
You can read “The Tide Turns”, an exclusive bonus scene based on “Sea of Sorrows” here.
