Art Student Launches 'epic Tail'.
Caterina LoMedico Marriott's mermaid adventure series teaches girls important values and encourages creativity.
By: Caterina LoMedico Marriott
Marriott began writing her first book, The Tail of Caterina Mermaid, in tenth grade but dismissed and restarted the idea several times until the spring of her senior year in high school; now entering the second semester of her freshman year in college, Marriott has written three books, all published by CreateSpace and carried by major, chain, online and independent bookstores spanning America and the United Kingdom: The Tail of Caterina Mermaid’s sequel Monica Mermaid and the Tail of the Gilded Trident, and A Yule Tide Tail. The series is set in Hillnook, an ambiguous region inspired by the two areas where Marriott grew up; coastal New England and Upstate New York.
About a third of the way finished with the fourth book (Kendall Mermaid’s Tail in Shark Lagoon), Marriott aspires to have finished and published the first five installments by the end of freshman year at Purchase, where she majors in sculpture.
