Originally published in 2012 by PS Publishing UK as a signed and numbered collectible, Flying Fish tells the story of a young but luckless New England fisherman who is desperate to change the course of his life. His last hope is a risky liaison with the island's most mysterious and dangerous citizen, the two hundred year-old Louisa Cecelia Christensen, who, for reasons unknown, hasn't aged a year past eighteen. It is rumored on the island that any man who can please her will live a life of bounty and good fortune, but any man who fails....

Called "magic realism at its finest," and "a pitch-perfect coming of age story that shimmers like light on water," Flying Fish is also a powerful short novel about taking chances while embracing the unknown as well as the unknowable.
