Warning! Warning!

This book is for middle graders and the rare few who have refused to grow up.


If you would find yourself sneering at the mention of a mahloowoo (Aqaurien for fish fart) or scoffing at someone telling you about a recent spouting (Aquarien for a dolphin blowing air out of their blowhole up someone’s backside), you might be better off picking up a newspaper and playing sudoku or doing a crossword puzzle. This book is NOT for you

On the other hand, if you love adventure, talking animals, heartache, mystery, mythology, some good ole butt-kickin', AND mermaids/mermen then this book IS for you.

You’ve made it this far. Here’s your reward:

“'Crabs talk?' asked Benji.

'Everything in nature speaks. Not everything in nature listens,' said Octavius nodding Topside."

Benji Fisher has spent the first twelve years of his life growing up in a small fishing town, Topside. He’s gotten used to the gang of dolphins who follow him on his surfboard and the voices he hears under the water; odd things that have, in their repetition, become part of normal everyday life.

However, none of that prepares him for the recruitment speech he gets from an octopus named Octavius and three of the dolphins the night before his thirteenth birthday.

What would you do if your ‘calling’ in life required you to take a leap of faith? Would you take the plunge?

Begin serious side note. (Said with a deep voice)

There is a message in the book. It’s pretty loud and clear, but it’s slightly overshadowed by the sheer size of the world you’re about to find yourself exploring. Don’t worry. I completely understand the importance of the message and it’s something I am working on developing over the course of several books.

My hope is that you find yourself so unbelievably entranced in the underwater world of Aquari, that you’ll gravitate toward interests in seeing our real world oceans and the creatures who call her home loved, nurtured, and revered. I understand the gravity of what I am dealing with, and I promise to pay the oceans, our mother, the respect she deserves. You have my word.

End serious side note.

The oceans are in trouble, and they need your help.


That’s why I created M.A.R., a fast-paced, gnarly adventure to give the animals a voice, or at least one, we, the Topsiders can understand.


Once you take the plunge, you’ll experience the ocean like never before and fall in love and laughter with the creatures beneath the waves.


If you stay on shore, you’ll miss the ride of a lifetime.

Note From the Author


I like to think I've given a voice to the voiceless. In personifying the creatures of the ocean, I hope that the next generation can see them as valuable species and not inhabitants of that large floating pile of trash off our coasts.

In all my experiences, I find the most joy and receive the most pleasure from communing with nature. Yet, there are very few places left where man has tarnished the view. If we awaken to the destruction we've caused in the past and continue to improve our relationship with our surroundings, there's a good chance we can reverse what we've done, maybe not in my lifetime but in the ones to come.

May Benji and his cast of characters in Mermaids Are Real help shed light and lead us from the ignorance that's caused so much destruction and into a future where our footsteps do not fall so heavily on this precious planet.
