Bethany Hamilton's Bio:
Since losing her arm, Bethany Hamilton has been featured all over the media, both nationally and internationally. Her story has been told in dozens of newspapers, magazines, news shows, and talk shows. Bethany has chosen to use her experience to become an inspiration and help others to overcome adversity, no matter how great. “People I don’t even know come up to me. I guess they see me as a symbol of courage and inspiration. One thing hasn’t changed—and that’s how I feel when I’m riding a wave.”

Doris Rikkers is a freelance writer and editor who has written many bestselling children’s books and Bibles. Although she loves the ocean, she lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, surrounded by her books, her flower gardens, and her family and friends.
