2018 Wattys winner! Reached #1 in thelittlemermaid, backstory, and Ursula; #3 in headcanons; #7 in Disney. [To be edited.] Prepare to see "The Little Mermaid" in a very different light. If you grew up loving the Disney classic, this is your chance to be part of that world again--a world darker and more complex than you  remember.  Trace Ursula's descent into villainy, and decide whether this is a prequel to "The Little Mermaid"....or if TLM is merely a sequel to Ursula's tale. 

Cover by the amazing Sophia Lamons.

You had me at retelling. LOVE. 
                              Your writing is wonderful, I am so excited to see what you do with this story and to the character development of Ursula. So glad I decided to check out the Watty Winners, or I would have missed this!
Finally, got to read it. School assignments were keeping me busy
