Lamar Neal is a poet and author, whose work has been described as "imaginative, mysterious, emotional, and passionate." He has been artistic for as long as he can remember. Years before he ever picked up a pen and paper or laptop to write poetry or stories, he sat in his room recording "television series" with his toys. Inspired by the matters of the heart and soul, music, and the random encounters we experience in life, Lamar takes readers into the world he created. He hopes that his poetry and novels will inspire and bring joy to readers.
A secret message hidden inside of an antique wooden box, an unidentified dead body, and a mother determined to marry her off to the high school crush whom she hasn’t seen since…well…high school. There’s no doubt about it; Finn Bartusiak’s life in the seaside town of Port New is about to get interesting.
Coming into possession of a 19th -century, bronze and mahogany writing box under somewhat suspicious circumstances, Finn’s accidental discovery of a coded note leads her and Spencer Dane, bestselling novelist and love of her life (though he doesn’t know it yet), on a quest to unravel the mystery behind the jumble of letters. But they’re not the only ones interested in the cryptic message. There’s a conman on their trail, and he’ll stop at nothing, including murder, to claim the ‘treasure’ for himself.

My starting point was The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Anderson, brooding over it, wondering what a happy ending for it would look like.
