Hawaiian Island of Moloka'i (NOVEL 3 IN SERIES)
Main Character: Tommy (the son from novel one).
Tommy leaves college at Kent State to return to his family's ranch on Moloka'i. He has a lot to learn as he's been pampered by his parents as long as he stayed in school.
But, he quit early, so he has to make his own income.
He could easily work the family farm, but there's just one problem, he's not the getting-dirty-kinda-guy.
Character Trinity is the reason he is making this sacrifice.
I call this my boy book!
Great read for my adult following, as well as young adult, college, sorority, fraternity, and high school.

I wrote this novel when my nephew Tommy came from Ohio
to visit me for a week and stayed a year! My mother raised him
from birth and he grew up in the same house that I did. He had
the same last name that I had, and he graduated from the same highschool I did. We shared the same mother and she passed before he was out of his teens.
Tommy turned 21 while living on Kauai with me,
and he made me laugh.
His character runs for 4 novels,
and I laugh when I re-read his character parts. I cry too, as he had struggles along the way. And yes, he really did go chase that girl.
I shot the cover at Ironwood ranch, which is next to my house here on Maui. Hollywood uses their horses, so they are used to standing still and being photographed.
The Border Collie belongs to the ranch as well. He keeps the horse still. I don't know how, but the horse did not move and I shot over 100 pictures.

Author's Cookbook: Due 2016
I cook healthy and slavish.
I start the night before and make my batter.
