About the Book

At the very tip of Cape Cod, twenty miles out to sea, a gigantic full moon was rising pumpkin orange and peeking over the rolling sand dunes encircling Provincetown Harbor. The enormous swollen moon dwarfed the village where twinkling lights reflected in dark water, and crickets hiding in the eel grass droned pulsating love songs. This was the Blue Moon, twice full in one month and two men stood on the deck of their summer cottage enjoying the twilight.

Val leaned in close to Gyles’ neck playfully nibbling at his lover’s ear and whispering,

“The Blue Moon is red-orange; everyone’s in drag in Ptown.”

“Or at least wearing a mask, this is Carnival week.” replied Gyles encircling Val’s taut waist in both his arms.


The Mermaid and the Sailor is a romantic romp set in Provincetown and the third book of the Glamour Galore trilogy. This brings to a conclusion the saga begun with the Boston mystery, The Family Jewels followed by that legendary farce, Naughty Astronautess in which our heroine, Diva La Strange became the first drag queen astronaut.
