The Secret is Out!

Welcome back, everyone!

It’s been a busy time, but I’m thrilled to announce my very first children’s book, The Mermaid in Rehoboth Bay! A book that appeals to children, parents, and grandparents! The Mermaid in Rehoboth Bay is a book that celebrates the beauty of the sea and tidal areas, and depicts two strong female characters who are able to confront their fears and achieve their goals on their own. Great care has been taken to depict non-idealized, age-appropriate children that readers will identify with. The story is inspiring and addresses themes of friendship, girl-empowerment, respect for differences, love of nature, and overcoming fears to achieve your goals.

The Mermaid in Rehoboth Bay is available at:

Browseabout Books, The Lilypad Children’s Boutique, Kids’ Ketch, Proud Book Store, Lewes Public Library, Lewes Chamber of Commerce, Seaside Country Store, The Sands of Time, Captain Blue Hen Comics, Hockessin Book Shelf, The Growing Tree Toy Shop, Oranges & Lemons, Bethany Beach Books, Children’s Book and Toy Garden, World of Toys, and News Center.

Your local store doesn’t have it? That can be fixed! Have them contact Cat & Mouse Press.

I can’t begin to tell you just how proud I am of this book! I hope that it’s one that you and your family can treasure for years to come!
