Book Research: Going Far Beyond Google

In my debut novel, “Finding Paradise”, Mila Quinn learns how to stand-up paddle in the ocean. The problem is, I’ve never done SUP a day in my life & I live in a landlocked state. How can I write a scene that I have no experience with?

This weekend, I was determined to experience SUP firsthand for the sake of my novel. I’m not the best swimmer & the wind made the lake very choppy, but I did it! Now I’m confident I can rewrite Mila’s SUP scene better than ever!
