Liam A Spinage

Liam is a former philosophy student, former archaeology educator and former police clerk who spends most of his spare time on the beach gazing up at the sky and across the sea while his imagination runs riot. Occasionally, this imagination has been known to spill out onto paper.

A weather witch, a fisherman and a mercenary carry a mermaid to the house of a playwright, and unlikely heroes are born.
