Okay my YA Readers we need to talk about Shearwater by Derek Murphy…have you guys read it? If not you NEED to check it out!
First all of Mermaids. MERMAIDS. The little girl inside of me who watched The Little Mermaid on a continuous loop is freaking out about Derek’s concept (and his cover because how great is it!).
Derek is an awesome writer, and is one of the few out there that impart patient advice to people like me (his training courses are excellent), so please do yourself a favour and go check out his fiction…

MERMAIDS ARE REAL.
And they’re going to kill us all.
When my parents died in an accident, they left me like a piece of furniture to a grandfather I never knew existed. In Ireland. As if moving halfway around the world wasn’t bad enough, I soon learned my mother had left behind some unresolved drama – dark secrets that were screaming to be uncovered. And then there are the things I can’t explain. Strange things keep happening around me. Happening to me. Is it because of Sebastian, the golden-haired stranger who showed up in town at the same time as I did? Or Ethan, the kid locals whisper plays with dark magic?
Maybe both. Maybe neither. But someone is definitely out to get me, and I need to figure out why, and fast… because I’m discovering powers of my own. Powers that I can’t contain. And no matter what I do or who is to blame, if I don’t discover the real reason my mother fled Ireland, more people are going to die.
