I'm the last mermaid. 

I'm back on shores of Lake Erie, but the cold waters are silent. There is nothing here for me but ghosts and the beach glass that litters the rocky shore. Long ago, I lived below the waves. Now, I am the sole survivor, and at long last, my mermaid glamour is leaving me. 

Every day, I walk the beach. Every day, I wonder what happened to my people. The little pieces of colored glass that wash ashore give me simple pleasure. They are gifts from the lake, reminders of home. I fashion them into trinkets: necklaces, earrings, bracelets. They are beautiful things. The humans seem love them. 

Every day, I walk the beach. Nothing ever changes, until the day he says hello.

I'm dying. 

It's not a question, it's a fact. The cancer is eating me alive. They told me I have six months to live, maybe less. I came home, back to Chancellor on Lake Erie, to die. The sunsets are vivid there, and I will relish every one. 

I've never seen anything more beautiful than a Lake Erie sunset until I see her. 

Who says fairy tales are for kids? Check out the Glass Mermaid, Book 1 in The Chancellor Fairy Tales, a stand-alone sweet romance with a fairy tale twist!

Amazing. Wonderful. Beautiful. Magical. Inspiring. I don't have enough adjectives. Seriously. I basically wanted to stand up and applaud. That's rare for me. I cried. This is a love story. And what a beautiful one it is. Go read it. It's super short. An hour tops, and it is so, so worth it! Seriously. I just. It is so, so good.
