AMY WAESCHLE is the author of the surf travel memoir, Chasing Waves, A Surfer's Tale of Obsessive Wandering, and the novel Going Over the Falls. She earned a B.S. in Geology from the University of Washington and worked as a field instructor for the National Outdoor Leadership School in Lander, Wyoming, before becoming a writer. A failed attempt to learn to surf while on vacation in Mexico inspired her first story, and she’s been passionate about sharing her adventures ever since.
Amy likes to surf, run mountain trails, and spend time with her family. She loves to travel and has visited Fiji, Morocco, Portugal, Costa Rica, France, and Norway. She has lived in Sicily, Sun Valley, the Alaskan bush, and in the back of her 1996 Isuzu Trooper. Currently, Amy and her husband live in Poulsbo, Washington with their two daughters.
