A Secret Ocean
The pressures of being 15,000 feet under the ocean are no match for the pressures Camille feels as a teenager. This pressure starts to build when she decides to leave her mother and friends to join her estranged father’s deep sea expeditions. Little do they know, Camille’s secretly chasing a never before seen cryptid nicknamed, ‘the bloop’. What will she find in the darkest depths of the ocean, and will it be everything what she’s looking for?
A Secret Ocean is a prologue that will serve as a pitch for a YA graphic novel about family, friendship, and the difficulty of trying to make your own path.
