Hawaii Beach Walk

I just returned from an awesome “mini-Guam” reunion in Hawaii. One week on Oahu and one week on the Big Island. Our group ranged from six to nine, so we rented homes on each island to enjoy the ocean views, have cook outs, and enjoy each others company. We caught up on the last sixteen years and are planning more reunions in the future!

Of course, I took my laptop and was able to spend a few days writing with the aqua-blue water crashing in front of me. I let my mind brew new scenes while we took in the sights, and I’m raring to get back to work full-time.

I’ve set a few deadlines for myself. Finish Margie Lawson’s awesome lecture packets by April 8th. Finish Passion’s Promise MS by June 1st. I’m attending OWFI in Oklahoma City on May 4th and though I will be networking and attending some workshops, a dear friend and I will spend most of our time working on our individual WIP.

Life is crazy, but life is good. I’ll keep you posted as we get closer to a release date.
Until then… Hugs!!!

Mike Dawson, owner of Mike’s Resort on Guam, hosts Team Fear US, an Ironman triathlon team, during their training months each year. He is the island’s legendary surfer-dude playboy, surrounded by beautiful tourists, and he’s happy to show them a good time because he’s all about the short-term. No risk, no commitment.

This year, the team shows up with a few new faces from Team Fear US2 and Natalie Walsh, their buttoned-up doctor, a lone-wolf runner extraordinaire. Over time, working with these endurance athletes sparks her competitive nature and she embarks on her own athletic journey as a marathon runner not just to race but to win. Is she fast enough to qualify for Boston? The Olympic trials?

Natalie’s brother, confined to a wheelchair after a football injury that turned him into a bitter recluse, at his sister’s insistence grudgingly embarks on his own athletic journey with Team Fear US2. Does he recover more than his competitive spirit?

Surfer-dude Mike vows to help the gorgeous doctor relax and learn what island life is all about. She doesn’t trust anyone, especially him, yet he slowly breaks down her walls of defense. Though they both fight the magnetic pull, some unknown force keeps pushing them together.

Can she stop running long enough to recognize a trustworthy soul and allow him to care for her? Will he realize he can open his heart and share more than a one-night stand?

In the end, will either have the courage to change? To risk life as they know it for the unknown?
