@RachVD

Can you imagine being 28-years-old and having written over twenty-four books in just three years including several bestsellers? A dream come true for many, but it’s a reality for Rachel Van Dyken. She’s reached the number one spot on the New York Times list with her popular romance novel, The Bet, but it’s her recent release, Ruin, that has people talking.

“…every month we’re donating to ‘Make a Wish’ or another organization for people who need help to pay their medical bills. I really want to use ‘Ruin’ as one of those platforms to help people.”… Rachel Van Dyken

With Ruin, Rachel has not only captured the hearts of readers, she’s also helping to support causes that are close to her own heart.

As a self-published author, I was curious to find out more about the prolific Rachel, her self-publishing exploits, her writing process and her passion for helping others through various means. I had the pleasure of chatting with her and discovered she’s just as lovely as one of her female protagonists from her many books…. [Read more…]

Update: Cynthia Aguilar On Her Recent Risky Attempt to Paddle From Cuba to Key West

Cynthia Paddling to Key West

Cynthia Paddling to Key West

Cynthia Aguilar’s valiant attempt to set a world paddleboarding record from Cuba to Key West in thirty-six hours came to abrupt end in September after paddling solo in the water for 17 hours. You can read about her preparation for the trip to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in this EYE interview.

When I heard that Cynthia didn’t make it all the way, I wanted to find out just what happened in the unpredictable Gulf Stream and how dangerous it was. She told me what made her reluctantly decide to get out of the water before reaching Key West and gave me some exclusive photos that you’ll see in her documentary coming out next year when she tries again. The woman is unstoppable! [Read more…]

Cynthia Aguilar Attempts To Set New World Paddleboarding Record– Cuba To Key West

Cynthia Aguilar tried to do something that no other paddleboarder has been able to accomplish. On Sept. 10th, this 26-year-old ocean lifeguard from Miami Beach attempted the first solo paddle from Cuba to Key West to see if she could set a world’s record and raise $100,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

READ ABOUT HER VALIANT EFFORT AT KEEP PADDLIN’. FOLLOW HER ON FACEBOOK. UPDATE: HER WEBSITE SAYS THE ATTEMPT WAS ENDED AGAINST HER WILL AFTER 17 HOURS FIGHTING THE GULFSTREAM… SHE SAYS SHE WILL TRY AGAIN…MORE INFORMATION ON WHY SHE HAD TO STOP IS ON HER WEBSITE…IT SOUNDS LIKE IT WAS AN AMAZING ADVENTURE.

A film about her experience “Dream Big” is scheduled to be released in May, 2011.

When I heard about Cynthia’s tremendous determination and her love of paddleboarding, I knew I needed to learn more. The sport seems particularly strenuous to me and especially tough in the deepest waters of the Gulf Stream. What is it that makes a person set an amazing goal like this and how does she prepare for it?

” I do it by paddling 45 miles, running, spinning and doing weights. I believe I have been training for this day my whole life.”

Cynthia explained why she’s taken on this unique challenge and what KEEP PADDLIN’ is all about… [Read more…]
