Excerpt from Surf's Up::

Every time he felt steady on the board, had a wave he could ride and would stand up, his focus would zip straight for the woman in the white bikini a ways in shore in front of him. He'd noticed her his first time out and with each additional glimpse, his attempts resulted in a nose dive. That woman needed to go back in her house before he really hurt himself. On the other hand, maybe she knew how to surf?


Kylee couldn‟t take much more of watching this poor guy wipe out every time he stood up. It just looked painful. She didn‟t know how to surf herself but after watching him, she wasn‟t about to try either. Even if she did know how, she wouldn‟t help. She was hiding out at her Grammy‟s winter home on the gulf coast for a reason; mending a broken heart, not meeting another guy.

You can find this anthology several places, two of which are Turquoise Morning Press and of course Amazon !!
