Aquavit “water of life” is a real Scandinavian liquor that inspired my first novel. I first tried the memorable spirit when I was an exchange student in Denmark, and it suddenly appeared at the beginning of my novel. Hence, AQUAVIT, became the first book in the Aquamarine Sea series.

My first novel AQUAVIT. Like a newborn baby!

Imagine having several months to escape from your daily routine. Where do you go and what do you do? Kat Jensen boldly decides to go on a sea voyage on an old clipper ship. But was this the right decision? Follow along on her adventures starting with Aquavit, the first book in the Aquamarine Sea series. And if you like the first, check out the second novel in the series called BLUENESS.
