Katie Schickel wants to live in a world where the surf is always up, high heels are outlawed, and love letters are as common as pink slips.
She graduated from Georgetown University with a degree in English. Her two obsessions — the ocean and writing — have led to careers in both, at times as an editor and writer, and at times as a scuba instructor, first mate, and fishing boat cook. Her debut novel, HOUSEWITCH, was selected as a Top 10 Women’s Fiction Book for 2015 by Booklist.
When she’s not making up stories and scribbling them down, you can find her staring longingly at the waves, or seeking out the next adventure.
THE MERMAID'S SECRET is her second novel.
