Mer-Charmer

Synopsis:

Fourteen-year-old Phoebe Quinn is surrounded by magic, but she can't muster any of her own. Her sister is a fairy keeper. Her best friends are merfolk. And all she does is dishes and housework.   

When Phoebe finds out a terrible sea creature is awakening that preys upon the gentle merfolk, she resolves to help them, even though it means risking her life deep in the ocean. Beneath the waves, Phoebe learns she’s more like her sister than she realized. The merfolk are drawn to her, and she can sense the magic of the sea all around her. Magic is finally at her fingertips, but that’s precisely why the stirring dark power under the waters decides it wants her most of all. 

Now she must not only help the peaceful merfolk escape this ancient enemy, she must master her out-of-control powers. If she fails, she will die, and darkness will rise to enslave the merfolk once more. But embracing her full power could cost her the very people she loves the most.

The first big hardcover book I ever bought with my own money was a beautiful book of fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Anderson. I picked one with a particularly beautiful watercolor of The Little Mermaid.  I couldn’t get enough of all the magical creatures and the exciting adventures! And, of course, the romance.

Fantasy is such fun! I’m also happy to announce that Book 3 of the World of Aluvia series, Dragon Redeemer, will be out in May 2017!  You can get a taste of it through the first chapter, included in the back of Mer-Charmer. 

Fairies, mermaids, and dragons, oh my!

Amy writes fantasy for tweens and teens. She is a former reading and English teacher with a Masters in Library Science. As an Army kid, she moved eight times before she was eighteen, so she feels especially fortunate to be married to her high school sweetheart.

Together they’re raising two daughters and are currently living in Germany, though they still call Texas home. A perfect day for Amy involves rain pattering on the windows, popcorn, and every member of her family curled up in one cozy room reading a good book.
