With a shark tail instead of legs she can swim faster than any other human or any shark.  Join Sabine on her adventure as she battles the sea demon known as 'The Kilk' and help her save the sharks whilst discovering her true identity.

My Story

I am a long-time shark and ocean lover. Always abjectly terrified of spiders, I have been the opposite of a galeophobic - a morbid fear of sharks - and have a fascination with these amazing fish.


Since I was 5 I dreamed of swimming with sharks. My father thought I would grow out of it... I didn’t,  I've swam with Black Tip Reef sharks off the coast off the Perhentian islands and Galapagos sharks off Oahu, Hawaii. My next plans are to swim with Hammerheads and Tiger sharks in the Bahamas!

These beautiful creatures are declining in their populations so I created the character of Sabine, a sharkmaid and hero for our times.

What Fans Say


I couldn’t put the book down, and told all my friends about it. I can’t wait for the next book in the series!


Sharkmaid Adventures was a great book to read! I look forward to more stories…


I liked how brave the main character Sabine is, I loved it so much I want to read it again.


Help save the sharks

Never eat shark fin soup!


Finning involves slicing fins off live sharks and tossing the wounded animals overboard, where they sink to the bottom and, unable to swim and pass water over their gills, suffocate, die of blood loss, or get eaten by other predators. Because of the demand for shark fin soup and over fishing more than a quarter of the world’s sharks, rays, and chimaeras (a cartilaginous fish also known as ghost sharks) are considered to be threatened!
