Since childhood, I had always dreamt of being an Author and Illustrator. Painting and writing is the most expressive way to demonstrate how I behold the world. I have been a bibliophile since early childhood. I realised as an adult that books gave me the liberty to dream and conceive that anything is possible. Children and adults must find a way to recapture their imagination.

My stories allow a child and women to escape into a world all their own, and there's something quite delicious about that notion. 

My heroes are Beatrix Potter, Tasha Tudor and Laura Ingall's Wilder. I love these women for their individuality and ability to embolden their beliefs in how they wanted to see the world. They created the world they wanted; as Tasha was known to say, "When you're an artist and writer, you can play God and create anything you'd like." That is undoubtedly one of my mottos. 

My storybooks are reminiscent of my dear hero and spiritual guide, Beatrix Potter. "If you like Beatrix's stories about rabbits, you're sure to adore my books about MerryMaid and little animals too! I added little personal life experiences to each story to inspire young readers to look at life through a new mermaid's looking glass."

Description: The Tale of Merrymaid Scarlette Rose

The Tale Of MerryMaid Scarlette Rose is an American children's book, Raquel Margaret Carter, written and illustrated by me.

A mischievous and disobedient young Mermaid, Scarlette Rose, is chased about the water garden of the antagonist Sir Mr Barbaric. Finally, she escapes and returns home to her mother, who puts her to bed after dosing her with tea. It is a tale that encourages following one's heart, seeking joy and trust in ourselves. Hence, if we believe in our power, we will always find our way home {true north}. This tale is derivative of The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter.

Deceit and Dissension

A British romantic drama depicts a credulous young lady from an English family of the landed gentry. Having grown up sheltered in a home with her mother and father, Rosamund becomes an independent and spirited survivor~qualities that ultimately serve her well as she ventures into unfamiliar territory in the 19th century. She is married to the sardonic Duke of Winchester; however, she finds true love in the head gardener at Eccleshall Castle. Upon this discovery by the Duke, he uses deception and hypocrisy to force Rosamund to make a heart-wrenching choice.
