, CA (PressExposure) May 16, 2008 -- Linda Ballou, well known for her adverturous travel articles and breathtaking photography, will soon release her first novel. This marks just the beginning of her career as an author of books as she currently has another in progress.
Through the eyes of high chiefess, Wai-nani, the reader will experience the Hawaiâian society as it existed when Captain Cook arrived at Kealakekua Bay in 1779; ride the billowing seas with Eku, the wild dolphin she befriends; learn why she loved the savage, conflicted ruler, Makaha; walk with her as she defies ancient laws and harsh taboos of the Island people; share the love she received from all who knew her and learn how she rose to become the most powerful woman in old Hawaiâi.
Wai-nani: High Chiefess of HawaiâI â Her Epic Journey, an historical novel will be released in May of 2008 through Star Publish LLC.
A love triangle of extremes has proven to be a solid base for Ballouâs writing. From her roots in Alaska she received strength, solitude, centeredness and respect for the awful power of nature. Her short story Raindrop People and numerous adventure articles including Raven Brings the Sun about my float down the Tatshenshini River take place in her homeland. In Hawaii she found nurturing, a spiritual awakening, sensuality, peace and her heroine for her historical novel, Wai-nani: High Chiefess of HawaiâI â Her Epic Journey.
In proud California, she obtained a degree in English Literature from Northridge University and a doctorate in urban savvy. She continues to enjoy opportunities there for intellectual stimulation, exciting contacts and friends. It makes a great base for exploits that she will share in her up coming travel collection Lost Angel Walkabout.
