Truth or lore, one thing is for sure: mermaids have fascinated humans for centuries. Why do they capture our imaginations? What do they represent to us? Why does she call to us through stories and is she something to be feared or embraced?

Join me in true accounts by seafaring captains from the age of discovery, to ancient tales, to fairy tales as we return to spring with the lore of mermaids. 

This is a special edition of Dark Softly Softly Tales podcast.

We want your true stories for our True Tales to Tell in the Dark portion of the podcast that will begin in March. What kind of true stories? Anything creepy, dark, haunting… write about the haunted house you used to live in, your UFO sighting, your creepy doll, or experience with a clown. Tell me how you were almost abducted on the side of a lonely highway when your car broke down, or tell me about the strange sound a beast made out in the woods that you couldn’t tell if was human or something else… just make sure it is true! Please send your true story within the body of the email to with TRUE TALE in the subject line. Please give me your first name and the state you live in (if in US) or country you live in if outside the US—or remain completely anonymous. It's up to you. If you’d like more details go to HERE.
