Chasing Swells by A.L. Goulden





An absorbing journey about riding the waves of life, overcoming childhood loss, and letting go of the mistakes that barricade us from our potential.


Title: Chasing Swells
Author: A.L. Goulden
Genre: Sports Romance
Publisher: Smashwords
Publication Date: June 21, 2016


A professional surfer struggles to reclaim the Championship when a travel writer is assigned to observe his journey between events. What seems like a dangerous diversion, both in and out of the water, forces him to accept that there's more missing from his life than another trophy.

When he won his first World Title at eighteen, they said he’d be the greatest professional surfer to ever compete. Fourteen years later, Dean "DeBaz" Bazner is inching towards retirement having never clinched another Title. This year he’s pushing limits to prove his beginning wasn’t a fluke, and it’s working. Until she comes along.

You don’t have to know anything about surfing for it to change your life. Travel writer Azure Thomas can attest to that. She was navigating the changing world of freelance journalism when she took this gig. She wasn’t prepared for a man that connects to her profound loss and sacrifices everything, except his soul, to live his dream. He’s more than a hot magazine cover, and surfing is more than a hobby. The dangerous diversion, in and out of the water, forces Dean to accept there's more missing from his life than another trophy.

Amongst tropical breezes, in the most beautiful locations on earth, CHASING SWELLS is an absorbing journey about riding the waves of life, overcoming childhood loss, and letting go of the mistakes that barricade us from our potential.

Author Bio:

A. L. Goulden has a BFA in Film Production from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Her love of a good story came way before college, but when numerous instructors and peers praised her dialogue she realized her creative writing hobby was a skill worth honing. Her 18 year career in interior design, production design and art direction for film and television have spun a unique perspective on visually emotional tales of relationships and the thread that ties all things together.



DREAM CAST for Chasing Swells

I don’t always have a Hollywood inspiration for my characters, so the idea of casting for this book would be daunting. There are few actors in Hollywood that could pull off the intense surfing so my “Dream Cast” for this particular book would include real professional surfers. We’ll just pretend they’re great actors.

Dean “DeBaz” Bazner
Dean is a little of each of these pro surfers:

Kelly Slater / Luke Stedman / Mick Fanning / Owen Wright




If there really were a film of this book, I think I’d push for one of the Hemsworth brothers to play Dean. They can surf a little and walk the line between serious athlete and light romantic comedy with as much sexy heat as the story needs.
