The Mermaids of Starfish Reef

At long last I am able to share what I've been working away on for so many months! The first of three books written and illustrated by me is to be published Thursday 7th March. The Mermaids of Starfish Reef is the first book, to be followed by The Sea Fairies of Whirlpool Gully and then the Seahorses of Scallop Bay. If you would like to buy a copy and have a peek inside you can do so HERE I've got lots of exciting events lined up so watch this space :) Erica x

Vanessa once lived beneath the Metro in Paris in a tiny apartment above a brasserie that she ran with her then husband, Bernard. Mice would flock from all over Paris to sample her Tarte aux Framboise, her Cerise Brioche and the eternally popular Gateau D'Amour. Her recipes proved so popular that she was asked to write a cookbook, which in turn was made into a very successful TV series. Just at the height of her fame, she discovered Bernard had been having an affair with one of the waitresses at the Brasserie. Bernard claimed that she was no longer at home, always off shooting an episode of her TV series and that they had nothing left in common. Heartbroken, Vanessa packed a small suitcase and a copy of her book - 'Recettes D'Amour' and moved away from Paris. She now happily runs another small Brasserie, this time overlooking the river Dronne where her tartes and cakes are as popular as ever.
