Isla and Ben were just sixteen when the Boxing Day tsunami tore through their beach resort in Thailand. Just days after forming a life-changing bond, both were missing and presumed dead. Unbeknown to each other and haunted by one of the biggest natural disasters in world history, Isla and Ben are living very different lives, until over a decade later when a chance encounter throws them back together.
Based on real life events, The Day of the Wave is a story of healing, learning to let go, and figuring out when to hold on with everything you have left.

Becky Wicks lives in Bali and scribbles books, and she’s mostly powered by coffee. Her first book in the Starstruck Series, Before He Was Famous recently reached #1 in Amazon’s Coming of Age and New Adult & College categories, and her three travel books, published by HarperCollins are online to make feet nice and itchy. Mostly though, she loves to write love stories. She blogs most days at beckywicks.com and always welcomes distractions on Twitter @bex_wicks. Especially if you have photos of cats.
What helps if you hit a writer’s block?
Thanks for having me on the blog, Crazy Beautiful! So… writer’s block? Well, in my experience, a case of writer’s block usually means I’m burnt out and I’ve been looking at my laptop for too bloody long! I go outside, walk around the block, or just watch some TV and have a big fat glass of wine and stuff some chocolate in my face!
Seriously though, when I take a break the ideas usually start flowing again. It’s almost like they’re all stuck in my head but don’t know how to push their way through unless I start moving about or thinking of other things. Then they’re like “HANG ON!! I’M HERE!! I’m HEEEEEEERE, LOOK AT ME!”
Also, if I’m really stuck I like to write the most pivotal scenes, ones that I know I’m going to have to write eventually, because then I know my job is write everything leading up to that scene and make it awesome. It might be a kiss, for example, or a fight, or a sex scene, but either way it’s something I’m excited to write, a light at the end of the tunnel!
But yeah, chocolate helps, too. A lot. That’s my tip. Eat more of it.
