Interview with Mari, from Storm Damaged:
Q: Thanks for taking the time to chat with us today. Can you give us a little bio about yourself? I mean, what would you like people to know about you?
Mari: Well, I’m a terrible singer. I can’t carry a tune at all. So, though I love music, you’re more likely to hear me whistling a song or sometimes even humming instead of singing.
Q: What’s your favorite food? What about favorite color?
Mari: I think everyone who knows me knows my favorite color is pink. If I could have everything in my apartment pink, I would. It’s such a happy color. As for my favorite food, hmm. That is harder. I love French Fries. And pickles. And cheese. Pretty much anything you’d find in a diner—I’d eat.
Q: What drew you to Chase?
Mari: The first thing that drew me to him was his flailing about in the water, you know, drowning. (laughs). I saved him. He was all covered up in a diving suit, so I didn’t really get a good look at him though. Later, when I got a good look at him—well, what is not to love? He’s a very handsome man. I love his broad shoulders and narrow hips—he’s made to swim.
Q: But he’s afraid of the water.
Mari: Yes, he has suffered from PTSD since the diving accident. His brother died and it was a scary night. So he went from being a skilled and proficient diver to being very nervous around the ocean. I hate it for him. I don’t know what I’d do if I couldn’t get in the water to swim.
Q: Speaking of swimming and mermaids, are you able to leave the ocean for long? Or are you stuck being stranded nearby?
Mari: I can live on land. That’s what my plan is, in fact. But I do have to be near the ocean—I can’t move to Kansas or anything like that. And why would I want to? I love the water.
Q: Thanks so much for stopping to chat. Is there anything else you want to share?
Mari: Just that if you want to hear mine and Chase’s story, pick up Storm Damaged and see how we handle my betrothed, and a hurricane. I’m honestly not sure which is worse!
About Kerry Adrienne:

Her new love is her Mini Cooper Convertible, Sheldon, and they have already gone on many adventures. They travel to as many concerts as they can–especially Green Day and Marilyn Manson.

In a world where humans don’t know mermaids exist, Mari leaves her home in the ocean to escape her mother, her betrothed, and her tribe’s expectations in order to make a go of independence on land. Chase, former Navy diver and self-appointed curmudgeon-who-isn’t-worthy-of-love, lost his brother in a freak diving accident and now fears the ocean he once loved.
When a hurricane threatens, they have to work together to save everything they’ve worked so hard to build. With Mari’s betrothed on the rampage over a centuries-old vendetta, the storm isn’t the worst thing they’ll have to face.
