Welcome to the OF TRITON blog tour! Check out all of the other stops here!
I am very honored to have everyone’s favorite Syrena brother/sister duo, Galen and Rayna, on the blog today! I thought it would be interesting to get a little insight into their thoughts about relationships, humans, and living on land.
So, Rayna, what do you think about your brother dating a half-human girl?
I’m not surprised at all. He’s always been a weirdo. And that’s what he gets for making fun of how much I love collecting human stuff. At least I didn’t haul off and fall in love with one! Well, half of one, anyway. Actually to me, Emma is more human than Syrena. She’ll never fit in with us. Unless she does something with that creepy blonde hair, at least.
This one is for both of you – what is your general opinion about interacting with humans? Pro or con?
RAYNA: You have to admit, humans are kind of dumb. I mean, we can pop right out of the ocean and go walk among them and they have no idea. There are humans out there more clueless than any Syrena would be fresh out of the water. How did your species even survive this long?
GALEN: Some humans are dumb, but there are some very smart ones out there too. Those are the ones that scare me. We’ve had some good experiences with them so far, but we’ve also had some bad ones, too. And more and more of them are finding out about us. I’m not ready to trust them just yet.
Galen and Rayna, what is your favorite and least favorite thing about living on land?
RAYNA: I love staying in Galen’s land house. I have my own room and it’s full of human clothes and nail paint and there are cookies hidden all over the place like under my pillow and in the drawers. One thing I HATE is that you get so dirty on land. The air is full of dust and the flowers seem to vomit this yellow stuff that gets on everything. Why do you love flowers so much? They’re filthy.
GALEN: My favorite thing about land is Emma. My least favorite thing about land is Emma—when she’s mad at me.
Galen, when you were kids, did you ever play pranks on Rayna? What was the best one?
Toraf and I brought her one of her favorite fish to eat. We’d filled it with squid ink so when she bit down on it…Well, it stained her teeth of course, but there was so much ink that it got into her nose too, and turned the inside of it pure black. We called her Cave Nostrils for almost an entire season after that.
Thanks for doing this, you guys! Good luck with, um……..everything.

Grew up in a town called Niceville. No, seriously. I graduated from Niceville High School. So did J Lo’s second husband. And the guy that plays Aqua Man on Smallville dated my best friend.
Now I indulge my tendency to lie by writing the lies down and selling them to publishers. Well actually my agent does that. One of my lies is called OF POSEIDON. The sequel is called OF TRITON.
Oh, and if you haven’t heard, if you pre-order a copy of OF TRITON, you will get access to exclusive bonus content that includes the first chapter of OF TRITON (you get a little sneak peek ahead of time) and a scene from OF POSEIDON told from Toraf’s POV. I’ve read this scene and you do not want to miss it. Find out more about it here!
