What the Sea Wants is set in a mysterious and isolated corner of coastal Maine and tells the haunting tale of Victoria, a young woman who has a strange relationship with the sea. The lyrical style of the writing and simple grace of the illustrations allow Victoria’s dark and passionate story to play out in a world where the ocean is as living and breathing as any human.

The Illustrator: A marine ecologist by trade, Julia C. Blum has had a lifelong fascination with the sea. Her interest in illustration and graphic design date back almost as far. Trained in a wide variety of media, her work emphasizes the careful use of line to create images with a classic, simple grace. She can currently be found peering into tide pools along the Northern California coast in pursuit of a doctoral degree in Ecology from the University of California, Davis.
