Hi guys!

To celebrate the release of To the Sea I have the author stopping by to tell us about the intriguing selkie mythology that's woven into the story. But first, a little about the book:

The mythology of To the Sea

The selchie myth belongs to a much wider collection of regional myths. Shape shifters, or creatures which move between their human and sea-borne forms, are common throughout Norse, Gaelic and Celtic mythologies. Just as djinns blew out of the Arabian sands; trolls rose up from the lakes and fjords of Norway; kodama, tree sprites, blossomed in the...
