For seventeen-year-old Lucas Hunter, leading an unremarkable life is inevitable.The only consolation he finds is in his dreams of the beautiful Tatiana Bishop. For months, Lucas has kept his eyes on this dark-eyed beauty at school and on the bus. Unfortunately, she barely knows that he exists. Then one day, she disappears. The news shocks him almost as much as the rapid physical changes he begins to experience. For the first time in his life he’s outperforming the biggest jocks in his gym class, especially in the water. Then Chelsea Sawyer enters his life. As Lucas and Chelsea begin to piece together clues and close in on Tatiana’s mysterious disappearance, Lucas will gain new insight into his own past—a past that will forge a stunning new destiny—one that can only be fulfilled by the Son of the Tides.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Son of the Tides was inspired by a combination of things. I had been working on a historical fiction novel for a couple of years and wanted to take a break from it. My daughter and I love young adult fiction so after watching her curled up on the couch reading a young adult novel, I decided to write the first chapter of one of my own just for fun. Son of the Tides is what transpired, and I’m so happy it did. This teen fantasy was a pleasure to write and I completed it in nine weeks.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The main character in my novel, Lucas Hunter, is an unassuming likable guy. Most young adult novels have heroines instead of heroes, so I wanted to write something different. Lucas is the kind of guy I always wanted to know in high school. Writing him was fun. Getting inside of his head and viewing the world from his perspective was thrilling. Maybe that’s why I’ve already written book two and am working on book three.
