Deep End Of The Sea - Front Cover


What if all the legends you’ve learned were wrong?

Brutally attacked by one god and unfairly cursed by another she faithfully served, Medusa has spent the last two thousand years living out her punishment on an enchanted isle in the Aegean Sea. A far cry from the monster legends depict, she’s spent her time educating herself, gardening, and desperately trying to frighten away adventure seekers who occasionally end up, much to her dismay, as statues when they manage to catch her off guard. As time marches on without her, Medusa wishes for nothing more than to be given a second chance at a life stolen away at far too young an age.

But then comes a day when Hermes, one of the few friends she still has and the only deity she trusts, petitions the rest of the gods and goddesses to reverse the curse. Thus begins a journey toward healing and redemption, of reclaiming a life after tragedy, and of just how powerful friendship and love can be—because sometimes, you have to sink in the deep end of the sea before you can rise back up again.

Magic Mondays: A Guest Post by Merrick Maples

Do you know how many times I’ve heard the words, “You’re so lucky to have a twin. I wish I was a twin …”? Do you know how hard it is to have a twin sister? It’s exhausting.

Like when you’re at school and she does something stupid and you get harassed about it for the rest of the day because she’s related to you. Or when she brings all of her ditzy girl friends over and you have to listen to them talk about how cute they think all your friends are while they stink up the house with perfume and nail polish all night long. That stuff makes me gag. When we were little, she wasn’t too bad. She liked to play outside and ride bikes and things, but then suddenly she decided that playing in the dirt and digging up worms for fishing wasn’t “cool” anymore. All she wanted to do was wear pink and do girlie stuff all the time. Plus, she’s older than me by five minutes, so she always calls me her “little brother.” But I’m almost taller than her now, so soon she’ll be my “little sister.”

We’ve even had to share our birthday parties for most of our lives. We’ve always had double birthday parties, and this year, our parents even got us a huge cake to share. But you know, now that I think about it, we did each get to pick our own cake flavors. And having a double birthday party means twice the gifts and twice the people coming over. And having a sister in the same grade as me means that I can make her carry my homework if I ever miss a day of school. Don’t ever tell her I said this, but, she’s still okay sometimes when she’s not trying to get some boy to like her.

Hmm. Maybe having a twin isn’t so bad after all.
