Sally Asher’s Mermaids of New Orleans

I was honored to be one of Sally Asher’s mermaids in her first published children’s book, Mermaids of New Orleans with illustrations by Melissa Vandiver! 

The Mermaids of New Orleans tells the story of the mermaids who reside in the Mississippi River, surrounding the Big Easy. These citizens of the sea are much like their land counterparts, culturally and ethnically. Many New Orleans mermaids play in bass bands, eat roeballs in the summer, live in narrow trident houses, and have their own parades (with floats that really float!). And true to mermaid lore, the mermaids are allowed on land one day a year. New Orleans mermaids, of course, choose Mardi Gras, where they can blend in with the vibrant and decorative costumes.”

Purchase the book on Amazon in time for carnival season!
