Imagination is freedom…on writing, self-publishing and all things fantasy

Feature: The Mermaid of the Month is Shivan! (Part One)

Leave a comment

For the month of November, I’d like to introduce you to the third Psyne who rounds out the trinity of mermaids in my novel, Luminous.  Her name is Shivan and she holds the position of mentor, a title that comes with much honor and prestige.  As mentor, it is her job to train the young Psyne in her charge.  She is the long-time friend of Ilauria, and while Ilauria is younger and has the tendency let her passions influence her, Shivan is older and wiser.  At thirty-five hundred years old, the golden blonde with the light green eyes still retains her twenty-year-old appearance but her many years of experience have tempered her judgment.  She acts as mediator between Ilauria and the volatile, Adante, but Shivan also harbors a deep, dark secret she has never divulged to Ilauria.  Like the other mermaids, Shivan has many layers to her character and Luminous gets at the heart of what she holds most valuable.  When the stakes are raised, Shivan has the power to end their rescue mission or to ensure its success.  Look for more on this fascinating mermaid later on in November!
