From the Author
It helped me to express how I felt about school, people who are different, and it let me take a mental vacation as I traveled with Lana and her family.
Years later I was finally able to put it to page and was inspired by Ocracoke Island on the Outer Banks of North Carolina and it helped me to write a better story.
It also helped me during a difficult time of finding out that I had cancer and going through two separate rounds of radiation treatments.
I credited my youngest daughter as Assistant Editor because she read my typewritten manuscript to me one chapter at a time during those difficult days.
The sequel (Legend of the Mer II The New Guardian) continues the journey of Lana and her family.
Sheri L. Swift is currently writing the third book in the series. : )
