Today, Tara and I are speaking with Maggie Tokuda-Hall, author of the new book, The Mermaid, The Witch, and the Sea, which we loved. We talk about who and what inspired her to write this book, how she explored gender identity among pirates, and the stories that define us.
NB: There are incidents of torture and violence in the book, and we mention them during the conversation off and on.
Here are the books we discuss in this podcast:

For native Guatemalan Anna Navarro, nothing is more satisfying than capturing drug traffickers for the U.S. DEA. Her career has always been her focus, but just as she’s beginning to yearn for something more, she’s given a brand-new assignment with DEA agent Gabe Whitcomb. In his well-worn Stetson and boots, he’s part cowboy and part law enforcement. But desire has no place on a job as dangerous as this one, because the drug lord they’re after is the violent fugitive who killed her father.
Gabe’s worked some treacherous assignments in the past, but this one raises every alarm. Posing as new ranch-owners to uncover evidence where a local family has been recruited into a drug cartel, Anna and Gabe can only fight the heat flaring between them until they realize that building a life together in Wind River, is worth risking everything for.
