Editorial Reviews


"The style is dreamlike, with vivid details. The narrator seldom tries to explain why things are happening. About the time that the nature of the 'Captain's' work becomes clear, the narrator makes a choice, and the pace of the book speeds up, so, you have a slow buildup, and a relatively action-packed second half, leading to a satisfying conclusion with plenty of room for a sequel." --Elisa Blaisdell, author of The Song of Andiene
"...if the reader enjoys maritime adventures, fantasies, character introspections, or a novel filled with literary prose, the reader should enjoy it." -- Sabena Stone, author of the Rachel Christie Murder Mysteries

From the Author

I hope you enjoy reading The Captain's Door, the first book in the Mina Paradis series. Readers may notice that Mina's not your usual ship's captain; she's socially awkward to a fault, naive for her age, and certainly shorter than most. In the literary sense, she's even something of an unreliable narrator. I love writing about Mina and her crew.
I am working on the second novel right now; it should be available on Amazon early next year. Please feel free to contact me via the website or twitter for any reason at all. Thanks so much!
