Liquid Comfort - A Surf Story by Cheryl Petro

Paperback or Kindle versions of Liquid Comfort available for purchase on:,, and Barnes & Noble.


My first full length novel, Liquid Comfort – A Surf Story, took me ten years to write. Most of that time I spent traveling and doing research/revisions, learning everything I could about writing and life on the North Shore of Hawaii. Liquid Comfort was originally a romance between Travis and Shayla, but the more I wrote, the more I leaned away from that plot and focused instead on the story between the two brothers and their struggles with addiction.

Although Liquid Comfort was inspired by my love of the ocean, it is more than just a surf story. Liquid Comfort is a tale of self-torment, addiction, and grief. It’s a story about overcoming adversity. Living on the streets when I was fifteen years old placed me in diverse situations and taught me a lot about how to handle hardships and what ‘not to do’.

Although I grew up in the Canadian prairies, I’ve always considered myself a soul-surfer at heart. I rode my first wave at Waikiki Beach when I was eight years old and quickly developed an infatuation for the sport. It became one of my biggest passions. Now that I’m older, I visit the Hawaiian Islands regularly, spending most of my time on the North Shore of Oahu. Although I am not a local, the spirit of Aloha lives in my heart and soul and will remain there forever.
