USA Today Bestselling Author Demelza Carlton has always loved the ocean, but on her first snorkelling trip she found she was afraid of fish.
She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray-drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below.
Sensationalist spin? No - Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all.
Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.
The Ocean's Gift series was her first foray into fiction, followed by the Nightmares trilogy. She swears the Mel Goes to Hell series ambushed her on a crowded train and wouldn't leave her alone.

After that...the conclusion to the Nightmares Trilogy, which has some interesting surprises in store. They might shock some people, though...

When I'm done with that one, I think I'm going to let the angels, demons, mermaids and dragons fight it out for my attention. The battle in my head will be epic and fun to watch...and the victor gets to decide my next book. (less)

Swamp Soup

Okay, it's actually Pea, Chestnut and Bacon soup, based on this recipe from Chestnuts Australia, but the first time I made it, it was such a vivid green, it looked like something that had come out of a swamp, or a witch's cauldron. It tasted so incredible, though, that I couldn't resist making it again. 

Ingredients:

400g cooked, peeled chestnuts

1L chicken or vegetable stock (I used chicken)

250g dic
