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.
