Welcome to November's Wild Card Friday. On the fourth (and fifth) Fridays of every month I've invited one of my writer friends to share something fun and then tell you a bit about their work. This week Harry Wegley has a picture to caption and a cool prize for the winner:

OK all, give this your best shot by leaving a caption in a comment. Harry will pick a winning caption on Friday. Winner will receive an e-copy of Harry's newest release:

Brilliant, beautiful, 21-year-old Katie Brandt, PhD candidate and woman of faith, detects a deadly conspiracy. Suspecting it's only the tip of an iceberg, she dives in, pulling fellow grad student, Joshua West, with her into a high-risk investigation of a cyber-terrorist plot. Damaged by the foster-care system, Katie takes huge risks to win acceptance and love. But when she risks Josh's life, an agnostic who isn't prepared to die, she fears her mistake might have eternal consequences. That's a mistake that would break Katie's heart, a heart rapidly falling for Josh. If Katie and Josh survive the investigation, can they ever span the chasm of divergent worldviews that separates them? How can they awaken a dozing nation to a three-pronged danger that threatens its very existence?
Triple Threat, a conspiracy you might read in tomorrow's paper, but pray you never will. An adventure that spans the Pacific Northwest, from the shores of the Olympic Peninsula to the mountains of Whistler, BC

  1. My Caption: When life crashes your plans, there's another wave of glory coming..

    1. That's a good one, Ada. But when these waves crash the teenagers' plans, they become people of true grit -- about 2 pounds of it -- all golden sand. :)

  2. Hi Harry and Sharon! Here's my caption: "Geez, bro, I thought you said this was gonna be easy!"

  3. It is easy if a person properly times the wave. You mistime it and you get 2 pounds of sand in your swimming suit. If you don't believe me, you can ask my wife about that. :)

  4. Love the photo! Here's my caption: This is soooo gonna hurt!

    Love the ocean, but it can hurt you!

  5. Yes, Sadie & Sophie, the waves at this beach can certainly hurt you. When they reach about 10 ft, they often drop straight down, making 200 yards of beach shake under your feet. They can literally break your back or your neck. But, somehow, these crazy teenagers seem to come out, full of sand, shaking their heads, and ready to go right back for another try.

  6. And the winning caption is, "Geez, bro, I thought you said this was gonna be easy!" This best characterized what we saw and heard from these crazy teenage boys who tried to do flips over the waves by launching their boogie boards directly at a wave just before it broke. I'll be contacting Patti to get a snail mail address.

  7. Thanks so much Harry and Sharon! I have since received the book and can't wait to start reading it.
