Riley is a deadly Aquan (“mermaid” in human language) who lives in the darkest depths of the ocean with the Blackwaters, her vicious clan known for its assassins and spies. When Riley is chosen to retrieve a rogue Blackwater on land in the heart of Boston, her plans go awry when two human brothers, Aiden and Max Grey, accidentally catch her in their yacht fishing net.
While Riley attempts to complete her dangerous mission, she struggles between her new human emotions and her fierce Aquan instinct. Enigmatic and fearless Aiden affects her in a way she’s never felt before. But time is running short, and if Riley fails her mission, neither she nor Aiden will survive.

Ocean of Emptiness: My YA mermaid novel: (see below for details)
Rose and Shadow: A superhero novella/short story series:
I'm a senior art student currently attending college in Boston, hopefully my future home as well. I'm also a writer... perhaps made clear by this account... And I hope to be a published author soon. I'm a HUGE fangirl, nerd, and dearly love the internet fandom community.
Seriously, you guys are amazing.
What I write: Romance, drama, action, and humor. Nothing explicit or crude.
Favorites: If you hadn't noticed by my writing, my ultimate favorite pairing is Batman and Wonder Woman romance fanfiction. Batman & Wonder Woman romance ship fics are my absolute favorite... My OTP. As you can probably see below. Although Star Wars and Lord of the Rings introduced me to fandom and fanfiction -- really jumpstarting everything -- the Batman and Wonder Woman romance /pairing is what really got me into comics... even though they're not canon. Go figure.
HUNTER'S MOON SAGA: A Batman and Wonder Woman Romance
A Justice League alternate universe with a Batman and Wonder Woman romance. Raised by a rogue Amazon, Diana grows up in Gotham City, knowing nothing of Themyscira until she is a teenager. She becomes close friends with Bruce Wayne, and although the two separate to find their paths as both trained fighter and Amazon warrior, they reunite and partner up as Batman and Wonder Woman. However, their partnership exceeds friendship...
Hunter's Moon, the original novel-length story, is now complete. The second installment, Hunter's Night, has now begun.

OCEAN OF EMPTINESS: a novel
Ocean of Emptiness is my third novel, a YA sci-fi novel about space mermaids, and the first one I've published online. While I'm hoping to be published the traditional route, right now Ocean is available on ebook format for $0.99.
Barnes & Noble
Here's a short summary of OCEAN:
What do you get when you cross a runaway rich kid, a space mermaid, and a stuck-up teen commander with a bunch of pirates in space? ABSOLUTE CHAOS. Throw in a little hint of romance, a few starship battles, and a lot of yelling, and you've got yourself an intergalactic tale. Think Star Wars meets Little Mermaid meets Treasure Planet.
