Lana Strauss can coolly face a 20 foot wave at Mavericks but is knocked off balance by an unlikely gaggle of conspirators trying to grab her newly inherited beachfront home. With little help from her dueling lovers, two dysfunctional brothers and her fathers very cantankerous ghost, Lana must save the beach. By turns erotic, magical, suspenseful and laugh-out-loud hilarious, Mavericks is a wild ride from start to finish.

About the author (2012)

Linda Breaux Bay grew up in a beach cabin converted from a glass-bottomed boat. She rode her first surfboard, tandem, with her dad Felix at the age of 4. Felix “The Cat” Seidler was an Olympic swimmer and lifeguard, who learned the art of wave riding from Duke Kahanamoku, the father of modern surfing. The family beach house was the epicenter of the 60’s surf phenomenon on the Northern California coast. This novel is a fictional tribute to that lost place and time. The author and her husband live on the Marin inter-coastal with a menagerie of pets.
