Hey romance addicts. I had the chance to connect with fantasy YA author, Ally Aldridge and talk about writing, and her new book, Ocean Heart.
Ally and I talked about creating lovable characters, connecting with readers and finishing a book.
Being a mermaid brings a new depth to ‘it’s complicated.’
High school teen Mariah’s life is anything but simple. Between a crush on her best friend and a rivalry brewing with the swim team star, her powers awaken early.
When Mariah’s guardian meddles in her life with magic, she causes more harm than good. The soul reapers are coming and there’s a werewolf hungry for merblood. All secrets wash ashore sooner or later, and Mariah’s about to discover hers.
Mixing a messy love life with deadly powers will whip up a storm of trouble. Can Mariah contain it or will she be swept up in its wake?
A gripping story about a mermaid, self-acceptance, and romance that literally sparks.
Please note the MC is 15 years old, there is a love triangle, and sweet romance scenes (no sex).
