Dead In The Water Comes Alive

Glenda Carroll is the chairperson of the Pacific Masters Swimming open water swimming committee and frequent organizer of open water swimming workshops and clinics. In addition, she has long been a columnist and writer for local, national and international sailing publications, and has written travel articles for a number of publications.

She penned her debut mystery novel, Dead In The Water, that is based on her personal experience in open water swimming. With more than 150 open water swimming competitions under her cap from California to Australia, she has a lot to tell.

Dead In The Water is a fast-paced thriller set in San Francisco Bay where it is open season on open water swimmers. Protagonist Trisha Carson’s life is at an impasse. She has no money, no man, and no mojo. But that situation changes abruptly as she is pulled into the competitive world of open water swimming. Baffling accidents keep her asking questions – to all the wrong people until she’s caught in a web of intrigue, revenge and danger.

The exciting climax takes places at San Francisco’s Municipal Pier and Aquatic Park - a real-world venue for the open water swimming community.

Dead in the Water is the first of three Trisha Carson mysteries by Carroll available on Amazon.com.

The cover was designed by Richard Burns, a member of the International Masters Swimming Hall of Fame, and Carroll's teammate at the Tamalpais Aquatic Masters in California.

The Other Shore

The Other Shore follows world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as she comes out of a thirty-year retirement to re-attempt an elusive dream: swimming 103 miles non-stop from Cuba to Florida without the use of a shark cage. Her past and present collide in her obsession with a feat that nobody has ever accomplished. At the edge of The Devil’s Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities. Timothy Wheeler’s documentary brings Diana Nyad’s extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac

An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...
