My new work-in-progress is set in Hawaii. I’ve never been, so I’ve been doing a lot of online research. And I’m finding some COOL stuff to do there. Problem is, my heroine would NEVER swim with sharks or hike up to see the volcanoes. She’s not a chicken by any means, but she is a city girl through and through. I did manage to get her on a surfboard.
I would love to go and research this first-hand, but the thought of being in a plane over water for so long kind of terrifies me. Because, see, I AM a chicken.
