Deepwater Horizon Disaster and Sea Turtles Serve as Backdrop in New Novel

Pittsburgh, PA, February 08, 2013 --( In Trails in the Sand by P. C. Zick, environmental writer Carolyn Carlisle reports on the danger sea turtles face as oil heads to the Florida coast from the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.

As Caroline follows the story, she uncovers secrets about the past that threaten to destroy what’s left of her family unless she finds a way to heal the hurts after a lifetime of lies.

Trails in the Sand explores the struggles to replenish and restore after destruction, in nature and in a family, as both head to disaster. Through it all, the ancient sea turtle serves as a reminder that life moves forward despite the best efforts to destroy it.

P. C. Zick worked as a public relations director for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) during the oil spill crises. In her new novel, she draws on her experience as the Deepwater Horizon disaster plays out in the background. As the oil gushed out of the ground and headed for Florida’s Panhandle coast, Ms. Zick headed up media relations for the sea turtle nest relocation project. In 2011, the FWC gave her and the project’s team an award for outstanding work in saving the endangered sea turtles.

Ms. Zick has written several nonfiction books and has four published novels, including Live from the Road. She now lives in Pennsylvania with her husband Robert and writes blogs and novels with environmental themes.
