Editorial Reviews


A girl I'd never seen before lay in the rocks near the water. She had her head angled so I couldn't make out her face. Her hair lay dark, matted and tangled.
Look up. I commanded.

Often while watching the goings on I'd make mental requests of my fellow islanders:
Walk faster or scratch your nose. As far as I could tell, they went unheard. But today the girl obeyed my command and looked up. Her eyes were dark, piercing and filled with anger.

There was something odd about her. I rubbed my eyes. Maybe it was a trick of the light? I adjusted the focus and zoomed in closer. Half of her body was female, she wore a torn t-shirt with unreadable lettering. But the lower half of her body caused my breath to catch. Fins. Scales. Fish. Mermaid.
A mermaid? But weren't those creatures gone centuries ago?

The Mermaid Curse.

I wracked my brain trying to remember what we'd learned in Assembly, wishing I'd paid more attention. Meanwhile, she continued to stare. Somehow, even from that great distance, she could see me. I drew back from the telescope, heart pounding.

About the Author

M.S. Kaminsky (Michael Sean-that's me-but almost everyone calls me Sean) writes YA and new adult suspense thrillers with twists of fantasy,mystery and fabulism. I aim to give readers the suspense and surprises I got reading Gillian Flynn's 'Gone Girl', the strong characters and action of 'The Hunger Games' and the mystery and paranormal thrills of Neil Gaiman's 'The Ocean at the End of The Lane'. (why not aim high?)

My most recent release, 'The Mermaid Curse Series' is a gripping paranormal suspense thriller that spans generations of women. 'Alabaster Island' is the prequel to the series followed by Book One, 'The Atlantis Twins' which is forthcoming. Please read the books in any order you fancy. I live and work in Brooklyn, NY with my husband.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

M.S. Kaminsky writes young adult urban fantasy and sci-fi with dashes of suspense, mystery and romance. His most recent release, The Mermaid Curse Series, reveals the enigmatic origin of mermaids in a gripping fantasy that spans generations of women.

When MSK is not writing he can be found with his husband attempting to tame the white water rapids of upstate New York or weeding in their garden. So far the rapids (and the weeds) are winning!

M.S. has been a lifelong writer. At four, he dictated his first short story to his dad before his hands were coordinated enough to hold a pencil. Today, his coordination is still questionable. However, his determination to write a good story remains just as strong as that spunky, four-year-old.
