Demelza Carlton has always loved the ocean, but on her first snorkelling trip she found she was afraid of fish.
She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray-drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below.
Sensationalist spin? No - Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all.
Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.
The Ocean's Gift series is her first foray into fiction. She'll follow this up with the first book of her suspense thriller Nightmares series, Nightmares of Caitlin Lockyer, to be released in July 2013.

I actually picked this up a couple of days ago and couldn't put it down until I turned the last page.
The first chapter drew me in completely, it was instantly intriguing. So much so that I had to know more. Some of it was hazy/clouded and, as you read it's revealed why - pure genius, that's all I'm saying. The rest of the book didn't disappoint in any way.
The author managed to keep me guessing on motives, involvement and even the outcome the entire time. I was wrong most of the time and perhaps that's what kept me reading - not knowing what was coming next.
