Today, I am hosting Tobie Easton on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt! Award-winning author Tobie Easton was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, where she's grown from a little girl who dreamed about magic to a twenty-something who writes about it.  Her debut novel, Emerge, is a Gold Medal Winner of the Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards and is Book 1 in the acclaimed Mer Chronicles series. The trilogy follows the descendants of the Little Mermaid and offers fans a peek into a world where Mermaids aren't just real, but live secretly among us on land. It could just be a rumor, but I heard Tobie can juggle 9 lobsters while blindfolded!

Find out more information by checking out Tobie's website or find more about the her book here!


Lia and Clay’s love has broken the Little Mermaid’s curse, but their ever after may not be as happy as they planned. Lia is adamant about staying on land with Clay for her senior year despite her family’s opportunity to move to the new, sparkling capital city below the waves. Before any decision about the future can be made, her family must endure Melusine and her father's trial, where new revelations will have far-reaching consequences that threaten what Lia holds most dear.  The verdict will shake Lia’s whole world, calling into question her future with Clay, her feelings for Caspian, and the fate of all Merkind. As she wonders whom to trust, Lia sets out on a treacherous path that will lead her away from her sheltered Malibu home to a remote and mysterious school for Mermaids—Mermaids who may hold the secret to ancient magic Lia can use to either get back all she’s lost or embark on a thrilling and dangerous journey where only she can define her fate.  SUBMERGE, Book 2 in the Mer Chronicles, is the exciting and magical sequel to EMERGE by Tobie Easton.

Today I'm featuring exclusive content from Tobie, and here's her message for you all:

Hi, all!  I’m Tobie, author of the Mer Chronicles series, which follows the descendants of the Little Mermaid and offers a peek into a world where mermaids aren’t just real but live secretly among us on land.  The first two books in the trilogy—Emerge and Submerge—are out now, and the third book, Immerse, comes out soon!  I keep hearing from readers that Amy, my main character’s cousin, is a lot of people’s favorite character.  So for YASH this time, I’ve created an Amy mood board to share with you, and I can’t wait for you to check it out!

You can also explore the Clay, Caspian, Melusine, and Ondine mood boards I created for YASH last year ;)  Is this how you picture the characters from the Mer Chronicles?  I’d love to hear what you think, so give me a shout!

xo Tobie
