Thanks for checking out Girl Out of Water. I had a lot of fun writing it. I don't know that the world demanded a mashup of cryptozoology, physics, identity politics, moody weather, mythology, and angst, but that's the story I felt compelled to tell. Also? mermaids who chain smoke are fun.

I'm an independent author and I appreciate the time you take to read my work.

I won this book through the Goodreads First Reads Program in exchange for an unbiased review.

I adored getting to know Tabitha, a really powerful female character with snark to spare. This book has everything a good story requires - physics, fantasy, fight scenes, and jokes about Seattle. Highly recommended - 4 and a half stars.

Winifred Burton ricocheted around the country for years before her abrupt halt in Seattle where she currently resides.
She likes random minutiae and pop culture that should be ashamed of itself. Girl Out of Water is her first novel.
