Books By The Beach: The Drive at Miami

We are practically half way through my Books By The Beach tour! I hope you have enjoyed visiting the beautiful Gold Coast beaches I have featured so far! Which has been your favourite??

Miami is stop no. 7 of my Books By The Beach tour. Not to be confused with Miami, Florida!

For 69 years, this relaxed Gold Coast suburb was home to Miami Ice, an iconic ice factory built from two recycled army huts which were demolished in 2013. Even Australian singer John Farnham used this venue to film his Two Strong Hearts film clip.

Miami is blessed with a beautiful beach and a host of beach shacks which remind you of the Gold Coast of old.

Behind me is the Miami/North Burleigh Lookout, which offers fantastic views all the way up to Surfers Paradise and south to Burleigh National Park.

In this post I am sharing with you all about my short story ‘The Drive’.

This was yet another story that went on quite a developmental journey. I explored a number of story concepts before I was finally satisfied with what is now the finished product, but because of that it is now one of my favourites.

Intent on leaving her troubles behind, Tamara sets out to return to her remote home town, but encounters unwelcome company out on the road.

PLEASE NOTE: At the end of this video there is information about purchasing The Drive on Amazon/Kindle. My books are not currently available on Amazon/Kindle. Instead you can download a FREE PDF version of the story HERE: The Drive
