It's finally happening! Book II in the Daughters Jones Trilogy is coming in 2020!
A NEW CAPTAIN HAS RISEN
Merrin’s journey to the mythical Isle of Bracile was only the beginning. On the seas between one world and the next, she uncovered the secrets of her past and took her rightful name, arising as Merrin Jones, daughter of the infamous Captain Davy Jones and the sea goddess Melusine.
Merrin also discovered the truth of the curse that binds her—and those she loves—to the Sea.
Now, as the Caleuche sails in hopes of reclaiming the Riptide, Merrin will find herself torn not only between two worlds, but also between the love of Tom Birch and Claudette Abobi. When the ocean splits as wide as her heart, Merrin will be forced to choose between the part of her that belongs to the land and that which belongs to the water. Her loyalties will be questioned and the fate of all she loves tested when the Sea calls Merrin home.
With the same blend of history of fantasy that brought the sea to life in The Isle of Gold, the Daughters Jones Trilogy continues as Merrin explores the very depths she will go to in order to save herself, her family, and both the man and woman she loves in The Sea of Glass.
I am so, so excited to continue Merrin's journey. While The Isle of Gold saw Merrin come into her own, she'll confront some tough decisions as she continues to grow in The Sea of Glass. She'll face choosing between the world of her father (land) and her mother (sea) and navigate issues of her own heart with Tom and Claudette and decide where her loyalties like and the type of Captain she'll be.
It's going to be a wild adventure--and since the sea is fickle, there's no telling where Merrin will end up.
Stay tuned for more news AND the cover reveal very soon!

TWO WOMEN, ONE LOVE, AND A CURSE LURKING IN DEEP, DARK WATERS
For as long as she can remember, Maris Heilen has been haunted by dreams of a beautiful woman beckoning to her from beneath the water. These dreams have been Maris’s only constant. She’s lived her life like a leaf caught in the rushing tide: no rules, no commitments, and no long-term lovers, either—just a string of broken hearts that have tried to anchor her unwilling heart to the earth. When her dreams take on a new sense of urgency following the mysterious death of her estranged father, Maris knows it’s time to uproot and keep moving, her soul pulled to the west, toward the water—toward her.
Instead Maris finds herself drawn to a surreal little town high in the Colorado mountains, where she begins to believe her dream might be much closer to reality than she’d ever imagined. When she discovers her past is linked to a legend even more haunting than her dreams—and that the woman in them is not only real but in danger of being lost to an unfathomable darkness—Maris resolves to outshine the evil that has crept into a small corner of a forgotten forest in Havenwood Falls.
