The Mermaid’s Sanctuary by Charlie Daye‏


Charlie Daye began writing at the tender age of thirteen. With an obsession for romance, happy endings and the supernatural she delves into your greatest fantasies and worst nightmares. She will have you laughing, crying, falling in love and getting angry. She will always give you a HEA but getting there is the journey worth taking.

Charlie Daye was born in Lynwood, California. Her greatest passions are music and writing. Her first short story was written at the age of thirteen. At the time her entire class was asked to write a short story for Halloween as part of a homework assignment. Most of the kids in the class wrote one to two page stories... Charlie wrote eight. The short story titled The Haunted House went on to win her district wide awards and was published locally. From their she began writing poetry as means of expression.

Since her writing career began she's published several titles... The House, The Colonial, The Reservation, The Portrait, The Gypsy's Dance, Mistaken for a Call Girl, Her Last Request and her national best seller Breeders. Four of which have been nominated for the 2012 RONE Award.

Keagan is a Hunter and happy with his current situation. He is single and his only responsibility is to his family and the realms as a Hunter.

Princess Seah, is the daughter of King Caspian and the most rebellious of all his children. Desperately wanting to be free to swim in the ocean and return to her beloved sanctuary, Seah defies her father's orders to remain in the castle. When she finds herself on the run from trackers from the warring kingdom of King Tahoe she swims for the only place she can think of... Hunter's Beach.

Keagan and his family of Hunters are celebrating on the beach when they see Seah swimming straight for them. Keagan braces for impact as Seah launches herself out of the water and into his arms as well as his heart. As the two become closer it appears that keeping Seah out of trouble is going to be Keagan's biggest mission yet.


Q) What inspired you to write this story? 
This story is the second book in the Hunter's series. When I started writing the first book, Gypsy's Dance, I never considered turning it in to a story until I met the brothers (The Hunters - Niko,Markus,Keagan, Kai and Lucian). After meeting them, I decided they all needed their own story.

Q) How long did it take you to write?
Several months since the third book in this series - The Faerie's Rescue, which is Markus's story, actually ran concurrently with Mermaid's Sanctuary. There are lots of scenes that cross between books. It was the hardest thing I've ever done.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
Creating worlds and people. I guess you can say I have a very fertile imagination.

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing? 
The length of time it takes to complete a story. Sometimes I wish I could just snap my fingers and have my ideas appear on paper but I doubt it would be as rewarding.

Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
Dean Koontz, definitely. That man is an amazing author and I would love the opportunity to spend a day in his head.

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it? 
Hmmm... a bottle of Caesar Dressing but don't worry it's still good!

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
I am currently working on a new series that will debut in January. It's called Children of Kria and is about a group of immortal assassins. It's completely different than what my readers are used to but I think they'll love it anyways.
