Old Seal Mother Blog Posts
Oh my goodness I cannot believe how time flies, ‘Seal Mother’ has been a work in progress (WIP) for many years now. I cannot believe that when I just did a blog search it took me back to 2015. Below is a teaser from my original story. Click HERE to go to the earliest post I found.
About Seal Mother and the Selkie Sealfolk
‘Seal Mother’ is finally about to be released. It is the re-telling of a Selkie Tale. Legend has it that on certain times of the year a seal can come onto the land, shed their skin and take on a human form. Sadly if a seal had their skin stolen they would have to remain in human form. It is said fishermen often stole the skin and hid it away so as to get themselves a bride.
Many stories of the Selkie Sealfolk can be found online but my favourite source is Orkneyjar and the Heritage of the Orkney Islands. Click the Selkie image below to visit the website to find out a whole wealth of information on these magical creatures.

Now I am in the middle of final formatting, and even put my almost completed book into the CreatSpace reviewer for proof reading. I must say I am secretly pleased with how things are turning out. Take a sneak peek at the images below. The illustrations are lovingly created by Hannah Ryan a wonderful young lady currently studying at art college in the US.

We are excited to see this book finally coming together having changed the format from a short story form to A Selkie Tale in Verse. Loving the illustrations.
