My name is Stephen Pass. I am 41-year-old journalist who lives with my wife Daniela in Harrogate, England.

‘Madge the Mermaid’ is my first book. It was born out of a visit to see friends in Perranporth, Cornwall. Whilst there, I came across the ‘Perranporth Mermaid’ – a mermaid made from washed-up materials from the beach. She had come from people’s imaginations and, struck by her colourfulness, I knew straight away I wanted to use mine to bring her to life for children.

That was two years ago and, finally, she is here! In the meantime, I have written a sequel: ‘Madge the Mermaid and the Attack of the Twins’, which I also hope to publish soon.

I would be particularly delighted to read ‘Madge the Mermaid’ to your school, group or library. To discuss this, or if you have any questions or feedback, please email me at madgethemermaid@gmail.com

Best wishes,
