DEEP BEAUTY RISING, is the account of an epic love affair with the ocean. A multi-genre book that revolves around a girls transformation as she dives into the primal bonds of nature, the sea, wild animals with surrender. She emerges a woman, nurtured and rooted in primordial kinship, to share the wisdom and bounty of the ocean on land. A journey that inhabits the power and presence of nature and tends soul, above and below the surface of the ocean.
The book is composed of individual stories that stand on their own and as a compilation are a potent odyssey steeped in personal experience, relationships, wild grace, animal encounters and discovery related to the Pacific Ocean of Hawai’i. An earthly and spirited adventure that unites the sensual intelligence of the natural world, swimming and a modern Merwomen-in-the making.
The enduring conversations that exist between environment, people and animals are cultivated in a spirit of beauty. The personal becomes a vision of wholeness, every day appreciation and understanding which shares and celebrates the oceans in our lives.
DEEP BEAUTY RISINGs structure consists of a through-line; Swimming, accompanied by two concurrent stories; Ocean Life and Merwoman-in-the-Making. An undercurrent of words related to the ocean, natural world and mermaids run at the bottom of each page.

The Merwomen stories, as read in Deep Beauty Rising, strike a chord for many people. One reader, Kate who lives in the Northwest, after reading DBR told me, “I’m a Merwoman!”, others have had similar reactions connecting to the primordial wisdom of the sea. I realize there are many out there-on land and sea. As Merwomen we have a very special, enaging way of seeing the world with oceanic sensuality, flow and sea-magic.
MERWOMAN Series: Whimsical and practical: anecdotes, insights, holistic and creative practices offered to nourish a creative, productive, adventurous and magical life of oceanic abundance, wherever you are, and you don't have to be a merperson (thought you might be) to enjoy these whole heartedly.
