One more day until the release of Ocaria.

Syyren Kantrella, captain of the guards, leaves her underwater world to seek the aid of the self-exiled prince. The oracle, the woman who maintains the underwater ecosystem in Ocaria, has disappeared. The prince is the only other person in existence who can take her place, but ... there is a price.

The last thing Marcus Versar Ay Seamius, a real estate mogul, wants to do is to return to Ocaria. Yet, for a chance to be with Syyren, he is willing to make a devil’s bargain, even if it means remembering why he left in the first place.

Soon to Be Published

I can't believe it; I'm finally going to be published. Writing a novel is not as easy as some people might think. Besides having the ability to weave an interesting or exciting story, it takes determination, some knowhow and a little bit of luck.
For years, I would write plots or half-written stories. Some of them became unfinished stories. I owned a chest full of notebooks of these writings, and I convinced myself that one day I’m going to complete them. Okay. It’s an unrealistic goal. In the back of my head, I know it’s not going to happen, but one can always dream.
My dream of becoming a writer started when I was eight years. My parents took me to the library for the first time. I felt somewhat independent because I was allowed to choose books that I wanted to read without my parents influencing me. Then, I found out I could borrow up to ten books a week. Oh, boy. I was a kid in a candy store. As I grew up my love of reading increased, and with it came the desire to write. While all the other girls I went to school with obsessed about writing in their diaries, I was more interested in creative writing.
In high school, I began to imagine myself as a popular romance writer. I actually completed several stories but they were written through a child’s perception. Any time I reread what I wrote back then, I’d chuckle at my naiveté.  Although the desire to write was still in me, real life intruded. I went to college and major several subjects but none of them replaced the enjoyment I felt when I wrote a story.
Five years ago, I decided to make my dream come true and take writing seriously. I read reference books on the craft, enrolled in many romance writing classes and joined popular romance groups. I worked hard to develop my skills and now I’m published.

The release date for my upcoming book is February 12.
