All Mick Bogerman wanted to do was teach his little brother how to swim in the coolest swimming pool in town. He didn’t ask to take care of a bunch of Sea-Monkeys while he was there. He certainly didn’t mean to morph one of them into a mermaid by feeding it genetically enhanced super food. No one is more surprised than Mick when the creature starts luring unsuspecting adults into the deep end of the pool. Adults who don’t resurface. Join Mick as he battles a powerful adversary: a bloodthirsty mermaid who hypnotizes with a golden gaze, shatters glass with a piercing shriek, and reveals her true menacing self by the light of a full moon.

Author Karin Blaski works as an Associate Professor at Rock Valley College where she routinely incorporates story telling into her classroom. She is also the Senior Partner at Slug Pie Stories, LLC. Her past lives provide plenty of material, including work as a waitress, radio disk jockey, drug sales rep, backup vocalist in an 80s cover band and entrepreneur. Karin’s interests are diverse and include everything from science and music to hanging out on the beach appearing to do absolutely nothing (in actuality, dreaming up the next story). And of course, she writes, writes, writes and then writes some more. She also has a soft spot for zombie books and movies.
