I'm the author of the young adult novels Troy High, The Boyfriend Thief, Something to Blog About, and Surfacing. I love books and mermaids and white chocolate. I also love animals and can't resist taking in one that needs a home, which is how I ended up with two dogs, five cats, and five chickens.

Surfacing is the first book of the Swans Landing series, which I am posting on Wattpad for free. The remaining three books in the series, Submerging, Shifting, and Surrendering, are now available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other ebook stores.

Mara's mom left Lake 16 years ago, when Mara was only a few months old. Lake never had contact with them except once, 12 years ago when Mara was 4 and her mom took her back to Swans Landing to meet her dad since he wouldn't come to them. Mara's mom thought that Mara should at least see her dad once in her life, so she made that attempt to reach out to him again. But Mara left Swans Landing as a baby with her mom, which is why she says that her dad let her and her mom drop from his life 16 years ago. I hope that clears things up! :)
