My first novel, The Blue Bottle, is a middle-grade adventure story set on the New England coast. The book, which has a female protagonist, was released September 2018 by North Country Press.
Set in Rocky Harbor, a fictional fishing village on Massachusetts’ Cape Ann, The Blue Bottle tells the story of 13-year-old Charlotte Hale, the granddaughter of an aging lobsterman, who has been sent to stay for the summer with her grandparents after a less-than-successful school year. On the bus ride there, Charlotte meets an eccentric retired teacher who tells her the story of the blue bottle, a local legend that leads her on a high-stakes quest for an ancient glass bottle, reputed to hold within it all the power of the oceans.
The book received good reviews in The Bangor Daily News and Merrimack Valley Magazine. The Blue Bottle is available on Amazon and B&N as well as directly from the publisher.
