Jillian Verbicky had a very vivid and inspiring dream. She writes about it starting as a short story. Eventually, it just continued to develop until she finally decided that it should become a novel and the result of which is “The Tail of an Angel” (published by Xlibris).

This book revolves around the character of Jillian, a typical everyday high school girl, with a boring life, who takes a family vacation on her family yacht. A horrific incident during their trip leaves her to fight for her life, stranded in the ocean with nothing left on her raft. When she finds an island to temporarily stay in, she discovers a secret no human was meant to know. Will she keep the secret to protect the ones she loves? Will she stay on the island forever? Who is this person who has been watching her for a very long time? What lies beneath the water?

“This book will appeal to teens and young adults because the story is taken from the point of view of a teenager and the writing style grows with her into this adult with problems that interest readers in their need for excitement, adventure and love,” says Verbicky.

A story of fate, loss, recovery, survival and love, “The Tail of an Angel” has a little bit of everything from humor, romance, adventure and knowledge on many different subjects.
