Those are the titles of the second and third books in the Mermother trilogy. I set up their blogs today although of course there is no content. I know roughly what happens in each book but no writing yet.
Hard Salt is very intense compared to Mermother. Briony gets up to some serious mischief.
It's such a relief to me that at age approximately 35 I finally figured out what I wanted to do. Be a novelist. These were the other options: dancer, palaeontologist, lawyer, optician, housewife with MANY children, actress, pilot, and forest ranger. Let me know when you figure out a common theme.
I'm very tired and looking forward to my brief vacation in Parksville. Yay beach! Yay forest! Yay away!
