Julia Ember is a polyamorous, bisexual writer and native of Chicago who now resides in Edinburgh, Scotland. The Seafarer’s Kiss is her second novel and was influenced by her postgraduate work in medieval literature at The University of St. Andrews. Her first novel, Unicorn Tracks was published by Harmony Ink Press.
In the companion novel to The Seafarer’s Kiss, shield-maiden Ragna embarks on a dangerous expedition to avenge her family’s death. Inspired by Norse mythology and J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan, The Navigator’s Touch is a tale of vengeance, valor, honor, and redemption.
After rescuing the maiden Ragna, mermaid Ersel realizes the life she wants is above the sea. But when Ersel’s suitor catches them together, she must say goodbye or face brutal justice from the king. Desperate, Ersel makes a deal with Loki and is exiled as a result. To fix her mistakes and be reunited with Ragna, Ersel must outsmart the God of Lies.
