Heather McLaren

is a Cherokee/ Irish writer living in southern Illinois with her husband and four children.

Having been a fan of mermaids since early childhood, she always knew one day she would build a pulse-pounding world for her favorite mythological beings to thrive—a fanciful world where readers could leave everyday problems behind to journey into the great unknown.

Mythos, the first installment in the Mer Chronicles, is her debut novel. The second book in the series, Beyond Legend, is scheduled for release in late 2016 or early 2017. She plans on bringing fantasy into the lives of young people for years to come.
