They say write what you know, so Jessica Bayliss did. Her story, BREATHLESS, was inspired by her own experience running out of air on a scuba dive—except without all the steamy romance and eerie paranormal happenings. Alas, real life. Obviously, she survived. Her genre-bending fiction holds a little something for everyone. A lover of ghost tales and horror since her days scanning VHS rental shelves—admittedly with eyes half-averted from the gory covers—a touch of the mysterious always finds a home in Jessica’s work. Romance with a dash of supernatural. Horror with a bit of humor. You get the gist. Jessica also writes across age groups and is a firm believer in the motto: there is a new reader born every day, whether young or not-so-young



Look for her upcoming releases: TEN PAST CLOSING, a YA contemporary thriller (Sky Pony Press, Spring 2018), and BROKEN CHORDS, a YA horror novella (Leap Books, October 2017). You can find her story “Care of the Undead Dog” in ZOMBIE CHUNKS, which came out earlier this year. Read about all of Jessica’s books and stories here.

Scuba Bunnies - Christine Loomis Sometimes they're scuba bunnies, but they also do some snorkeling, which is nice. Good book for a child who wants to be a marine biologist someday. And also a nice antidote to that awful [b:The Runaway Bunny|58922|The Runaway Bunny|Margaret Wise Brown|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1348411757s/58922.jpg|2039654], where the mother keeps changing form in order to drag the baby back every time. Here mom just goes on with her life until the adventure is over and the bunnies come in for warm jammies and hot drinks.Or maybe that's just me that hates Runaway Bunny?Library copy

Scuba Diving Subic Bay's Wrecks - Charle... Scuba Diving Subic Bay's Wrecks - Charles W. Davis Jr. This was a really cool read for me. Being a novice diver, I simply expected a book which contained photographs of sea life and wrecks in the area. The author went so much deeper into that though. He, literally, maps out the area and safety for various levels of divers. He then goes into the history of the wrecks and war occurences in the bay. He even laid out potential "diver" entertainment and places to stay when not in the water. It was abundantly clear that this was a book which was well researched. I found it a fascinating read and so much more than what I was expecting.
