Chasing the Water: Whitewater Mermaids

Chasing the Water: Whitewater Mermaids

We’re chasing the water again, this time in Salida, Colorado. During a girls weekend, where I’d known most of the people there since I was 5-years-old, we went river rafting and looking for water sprites. The mermaids had fun with us that day!

We glided through the water while I was enjoying the scenery, peacefulness of the cliffs and national park forest. It gave me a lot of serenity and inspiration for Iona Fay & The Sea Sirens, book three. It didn’t last long.

Some of my friends got a little too spirited and decided to do some unexpected underwater exploration to help me out. Right after Meghan with an “M,” our river guide, told us we were the best group she’s taken down the river, we hit “Hemorrhoid” rock, and half of the people in our boat toppled into the water. Fortunately, we quickly rallied, dunking and hauling everyone safely back in the boat within minutes. Upon which, Meghan with an “M” informed us that no one has ever fallen out at hemorrhoid rock.

We were the first.

On the bright side, at least we didn’t lose people in the “Toilet Bowl.”

Iona Fay Book Tour

Did you know that Iona Fay went on a book tour across the United States, starting on the East Coast and ending on the West Coast in 2017?

Gayvin reads Iona Fay bedtime stories

Many of you followed us across the United States in Aoife the Airsteam. For those of you who missed it, I’m moving those blog posts over here.

We kicked off the weekend with a trip to Joran Lake in North Carolina. While there, we went boating, paddle boarding and read from Iona Fay, book 1.

For more photos of the journey, check out the AdventuresOfIonaFay Instagram account, where you can see the fantastic trip as it unveils itself this summer. (If anyone has connections at Instagram, please let me know. I’ve since been cut out of this account. Thanks!)

Thanks to Kim, Dana, Nora, Tom, Sheena, Gay, Erin, Koury and Jack for making the launch day a memorable weekend!!!

Join The Journey – Adventure Awaits!
