About the Author

As the most popular blogger in the Caribbean, Dear Miss Mermaid has dazzled islanders and tourists alike with tales of the tropics, local recipes, and informative weather reports for over twelve years, blogging daily at StormCarib.com and DearMissMermaid.com Though her identity is kept top secret, fans can't get enough of her daily writings of life in a strange island world and what she calls "the comedy of living on the edge of reason in the Caribbean".

More About the Author

Dear Miss Mermaid began as an island correspondent for StormCarib.Com (Tortola BVI page) and was writing daily posts for them long before the word "blog" was even invented.

Her humorous takes on island life quickly made her daily postings a popular read for folks around the world.

Her first book was a limited edition Cookbook "Fine Fare with Flair" which included funny anecdotes and stories, right in the middle of recipes. Proceeds from that book were used to rebuild her hurricane ravaged sailboat. Readers encouraged her to keep writing.

Eventually she wrote "Hurricanes and Hangovers (and other tall tales and loose lies from the coconut telegraph)" where names have been changed to protect the guilty!

She is currently working on three more books, and resides in the Caribbean with her cats, who sometimes have to step in write her daily posts and blogs when she is unwell or busy.

Recently, tragedy landed her in the hospital and someone brought her laptop for her to use since the ceiling she was staring at had such poor graphics. She began writing a hospital blog, that was both honest and hilarious at times.

If you've not yet been exposed to the humor of Miss Mermaid, then you're in for a treat! This wild and whacky selection of her tales from the Caribbean will have you rolling on the floor laughing! Meet a host of unique, intriguing characters... Jungle Jim who advertises outings with his "Charter the Derelict!" cards... Da-Fema-Mon, flummoxed by islanders' lack of addresses, house numbers, shoes, and other hilarious irregularities, finally gives up and goes total island bonkers... Grace Klutz, a wild and whacky import... and numerous other delightful, colorful folks who bring you miles of smiles... Well, as the author says, "Mon, d'is island life be something different!" And so it is! For a fun read, with a dose of bawdiness and badness, take a sip of Miss Mermaid's little island masterpiece. You won't regret it!

Thoroughly enjoyed the mad and racy world of the BVI, which is so completely different from the so-called urbane and civilised world of the big cities - whether they be in the UK or the US. Living in an island myself, I can almost identify with the irreverent and nearly lawless nature of the BVI. Characters are larger than life and well depicted. Be prepared to chuckle regularly!

I have been following DearMissMermaid for years now, I started following her on stormcarib.com and now I read her adventures on her blog. I get a dose of entertainment that I can enjoy and relate to everyday. Reading hurricanes and hangovers was such a delight, I am only sorry I didn't read it sooner. If you want to be entertained and feel like you are in the islands enjoying the camaraderie jump in to this book.

The stories are both funny and captivating. Reading them is like a vacation to the islands and all the characters residing there. All I want is more more more. Terrific writing.

All I can say is if you're a parrot head or just someone who enjoys a good vacation read for the beach, give it a look; you won't be sorry you did.

If you've ever been or wanted to go to the Virgin Islands, this book gives you a little taste of what it's really like there, from a residents standpoint, not that of a tourist. This is not War and Peace, it's meant to be a light fun read and it meets that standard well.
