When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend my free time painting, sailing, kayaking and reading. When "working", I volunteer on a tall ship and restore/maintain our own fleet of wooden boats--(and one fiberglass boat named Sugaree).
On a remote island in the Pacific Northwest, a young woman discovers a shipwrecked scientist. With help from her friends, she rescues him—only to learn that he is a fugitive with a deadly secret. Pursued by dangerous agents, they set out to expose the governments’ plot and destroy the weaponized enzyme before it can be used against innocent people.
Wallace chronicles her successful business that brought her accolades and awards. As her professional life soars, her family's lives spiral. Tales of teens in crisis and chaos illuminate the struggles of many working families. Events broadside her business causing a professional aftershock. Their lifeline comes in the form of a ship named Zodiac and its enigmatic captain.
