The Sea Sheller's Daughter
 

Marine biologist, Eve "Shelly" Shelbourne, has to find a way to carry on after the death of her twin brother, Denny. 

Shelly blames her mother, Violet a famous marine archeologist turned treasure hunter for leaving the family when they were young and adding to Denny's depression caused by the challenges of living with multiple sclerosis.

With her research partner and lover, the brilliant and deaf, Beckett Bohannan by her side, she pushes through her grief to finish her commitment to find a treatment for MS developed from the venomous conotoxins found in marine cone snails.

Shelly uncovers a family secret about her DNA that makes her question her life, her relationships, and her health. 

As she searches for the elusive snails, she also searches for answers from her mother. She joins her mother's crew and travels halfway across the globe. The two women clash until an accident threatens everything they both believe.

This story crosses continents, explores family relationships, wrapped in science and exploration. 

All stories are personal. The Sea Sheller's Daughter is a sailors valentine to my father and my love of seashells.
