Story spotlight: “Mother of the Waters” by Leigh Saunders

In the spring of 1810, the death of his father – and discovery of an unknown uncle – sends fifteen year-old Samuel Harlowe from his simple life in England across the sea on a journey filled with dangers and wonders he never imagined.

And when a kraken attacks his ship, Samuel must choose to whether to let his crewmates perish in the watery depths, or to pay the price demanded by the Caribbean goddess Mami Wata, the Mother of the Waters.
“Mother of the Waters” is in the Beneath the Waves collection. You can learn more on BundleRabbit, Goodreads, and the collection’s Facebook page.

About the Author

Leigh Saunders grew up as a “military brat.” And while she’s long-since settled in her Rocky Mountain home (with her husband and a pair of feuding cats that vie for her attention), her life-long wanderlust regularly inspires her to write about the people and places that spark her imagination. In her day job, Leigh writes user materials for a large software company—an endeavor which is often not all that far from writing science fiction.
