Development Pitch

About The Author

I am a Cherokee/ Greek fantasy writer from southern Illinois. I have finished Mythos and Beyond Legend, book one and two of five installment in the Mer Chronicles series. Alongside mers, I have also involved selkies and mythological creatures that are native to the Bahamas. I have also tweaked the mermaid legend to include mers who are human in fresh water and deep sea mers who are allergic to sunlight. The sea demons are creatures I made up entirely, and I believe this series introduces the first mentally handicapped mermaid in literature.
