Kemar Doughty is a 21 year old Barbadian writer who created a fantasy thriller for young Bajans. Writing from very young, he was inspired to write what became his first published book. He says he’s the first author in his family, which he reveals with an almost embarrassed grin…

Kemar writes of a young man facing a huge struggle with apparently ironclad odds, whose triumph over difficulties is propelled by an uncanny attraction to a beautiful girl - his first love. He's willing to stop at nothing to make sure she stays in his life.

As one gets deeper in the book you discover a dreamy romance, yet it’s also quite the thriller, and a feast for the imagination. Kemar brings mermaid folklore to life and concludes it with an exciting, epic battle!
