Skipping the Scales



The exciting sequel to the YA contemporary fantasy Flipping the Scales

Meredith, Marina, and Hailey’s wildest dreams could be coming true.

Two weeks in the ocean changed Meredith’s life and career goal. Now studying marine biology, she lands a summer internship at a local aquarium. Her aquatic intuition impresses her mentor, but how would the mermaids feel about holding fish captive in the name of science?

Marina has returned ashore to seek out her missing mother. A curious and cryptic painting leads to other clues, but the search through her mother’s past reveals more questions than answers. Could her parents have left the ocean harboring a deep, dark secret?

Meanwhile, Hailey keeps Marina’s tail safe and lives her lifelong dream to be a real mermaid. The experience is exhilarating, until the leader of the school suspects she is a human. If she gets caught, would it leave her friend forever marooned on land?

When second-guessing, mystery, and danger threaten to sink their dreams, will they skip out? Or will they work together and swim through the rough waters ahead?

  1. Will this eventually be available on Apple iBooks?

    • Thanks for the interest!

      Yes, it should be available on Apple iBooks within the next few days. There’s sometimes a little lag time between the uploading of the book and its appearance on certain retailers. Once I know it’s available at other sites (such as Barnes & Noble, Apple, Kobo, etc.), I’ll update this post with those links.

      I hope you enjoy the story!

  3. Brian Green says:

    When does the third book Tripping the Scales come out? I would like to order the book. The first two books are really good. I hope Meredith gets a tail again some how. Keep up the good work.

    • Brian,

      Thank you for your message, and thanks very much for the kind words about parts 1 and 2.

      Writing isn’t my full-time job, and I write when I can as quickly as I can, so I tend not to promise any release dates. As it is, Skipping the Scales came out later than I wanted. I’m shooting for a December release, but it depends on how the summer goes.

      Take care!
