A Survival Guide for Landlocked Mermaids
Table of Contents
About The Book
The landlocked mermaid is a symbol of the contemporary woman, trapped in a paradoxical dilemma of being part worldly and domesticated, part untamable and intuitive.
Margot's beautifully painted, contemporary mermaids are caught in the nets of their own comical dilemmas, circling the heart's fishbowl of romantic longings and in the murky depths of deep emotion. Whether it's the value of cultivating an inner water garden or coping with crow's feet and fish tails, Margot offers advice and an enchanting way of hydrating your weary mermaid soul.
Coy, sweetly mischievous, and a pinch sagacious, this is a book that, like a good glass of wine, can be enjoyed multiple times, sipped on, or downed in one reading.

"Margot Datz is a mythical wisp herself, a wood nymph who walks this earth and paints by the mile. She lives by the sea, surviving on detail, the exotic, and on beauty. Her antennae are always high. She listens, she digests, and she pontificates with care and humor. If anyone in this dimension has heard messages from the merfolk, Margot would be the one." -- Patience Brewster, author, artist, and creator of the Krinkles™
