Here are a couple of her books!
The Eel is a place. The reverence is … complicated. With all sides bracing for battle, Aunt Libby wins the hearts and minds of some of the humans and mermayds around her. If they aren’t enough, if they fail her under pressure, the best the people of The Eel can hope for is a brutal suppression. The worst is a bloodbath that will made the sea run red.
All she wanted was a breath of fresh air. Was that too much to ask? Apparently so. Gangsters aliens, local law enforcement and highly placed political operatives all get into the act, as a tangle of misunderstanding, miscommunication and mistaken identity land Bel Schuster in court, facing what passes for a legal system on Llannonn.
