The Mermaids of Xanadu is a young adult series written by Robert Thornsberry which is available on Kindle.
Book One, The Accidental Mermaid, tells the story of Hannah and her fiance Alex who are editor and publisher of Darknight Books. In what became known as the Xanadu Event, they are turned into merfolk by a cursed shaman at the science fiction Kubla Con.
In Book Two, The Girl with the Sea-Green Eyes, which includes illustrations by Ashleigh Webb, newly married Hannah and Alex await the birth of their first child and try to build a somewhat normal life as merfolk.
