Read full description of the books:
Selkies are Scottish seal people, and are considered magical shapeshifting creatures, able to interbreed with humans. Spoken of in many old stories, the females are said to make caring wives, and the men to be charming and good lovers. If their skin is captured, they will remain on land, though more is heard about women being captured than the men. If they find their stolen skin, they will return to the sea and any mate or family therein, though remaining nearby to watch over their land-children.
What happens though, if a Selkie never manages to reclaim her skin before her death, and so remains with her children? What happens if her family is a magical one, and her subspecies had been created by the cooperation of sister water goddesses? Let's add in that the fisherman who captured her possessed magic of his own. Further, what if the drive to return to the sea remains strong in the offspring of these two, and as servants of these goddesses, provide their care despite being disliked and untrusted by both full blooded Selkies and humans when found out.
We come then to modern times. First a fishing family, favored then by fortune and Marsali's magic, the Makay clan grew to a merchant family that went on grand voyages for the good of the Magical Community. Few now remain, and those are now waterwitches, primarily interested in tending duties set by deities that few believe actually exist, and the health of the waters both locally and planet wide.
Kirsty has little choice in her fate, only how it will manifest. There are tests to pass, a place that she may have to occupy prematurely if her visions prove true, and a need to earn her sealskin to be complete. Will Etain return safe to port, and will Kirsty survive her training and test?
Originally this was intended to be one book, but may end up becoming a series. The first book is planned to go to print and ebook in late December of 2013 or early January 2014. There will be separate covers for the separate editions (regular ebook, print, and illuminated edition). Currently it is being serialized as a webnovel, although readers can expect slight changes and likely expansions in the print and ebook versions.
The webnovel is available for sampling at http://teresagarciaserials.weebly.com... but be warned that scenes may be either added or deleted for the print/ebook. An official sample will be uploaded here once the manuscript is through a second pass of editing rounds.
Current editor: Faith Lindgren-Brown (and we all hope that we don't lose her during the writing process)
Ebook Cover: Teresa Garcia and Athena Garcia (current cover is a concept cover)
Print Cover: Samantha Buckley
Illuminated Edition Cover: Marantha D. Jenelle

Read information about the authorTeresa Garcia (once Teresa Huddleston-Garcia) is a 30-something mother of two children with special needs, raising them "alone" in the small mountain town of McCloud, CA. Just because she is on her own though, does not mean that she is "alone." Many thanks are due to the McCloud Community Resource Center, to her brother and his family, and her mother, for all their help.
She is in the process of converting all books from Teresa Huddleston-Garcia to Teresa Garcia (her maiden name) as she no longer wishes to have her ex's name on all her work. She appreciates patience as she gets the problems fixed with rereleases of older books to match her name resumption.
She finished her International Relations degree Bachelor's degree. She loves to text role play with her long distance mate even though she rarely gets to anymore, write stories, hike, paint, meditate, and play games or read with her kids. She also writes quests for, and helps to maintain, the online browser-based RPG Dragon Hearts as well as performing website testing services for a website developer.
She was raised in another mountain community, which she visits as often as she can spare time and gas, though not nearly often enough for her wishes. Her parents always encouraged her writing and artistic talents. In 2005, she decided to pick up the dream of writing and publishing a novel once more, having shelved that (and the "Shadow Chronicles" manuscript) in her early college years due to the time constraints of motherhood at the time. In 2006 she released to the public her first novel in the "Dragon Shaman" series, "Taming the Blowing Wind," and has since published a second book in the series and a poetry book. She likes to deal with multicultural themes because of her own background.
Currently Teresa has several manuscripts to work on, such as her "Dragon Shaman" series of novels and her current favorite serialized story, "Selkies' Skins." She is a dedicated fan of fantasy and paranormal, and writes for those that share her tastes. Teresa also welcome interaction with readers, which is the main reason she came to Goodreads (besides being an avid reader herself and rabid book fan). Despite some of the things that sometimes get attributed to her she does NOT write MFM sort of stories. She does NOT write "adult only" books under her own name and uses a pen name for anything too close to that.
