In her candid, unconventional story of a life nurtured by the love and beauty of the Islands, a part-Hawaiian wild child grows into a feisty, confident mother and motivator. Along with her schoolteacher husband of more than 40 years, Chula has raised her four children and fostered 14 others. In this same spirit of adventure and introspection, she has lived and shared her message of love over fear with prisoners and schoolchildren alike—and now with readers of this fun and provocative memoir.

Born in Mexico, Chula has lived in various locations around the world, including Santa Barbara, Australia, Provence and Tuscany, always returning to Hawaii. She is married to schoolteacher Robert Harrison and has four grown children, Robin Johnston and Robby, Todd and Kilia Harrison. She is a graduate of Punahou School.Review:
Chula has lived a life of great adventure, big risks, exotic escapades and great loves. She is exactly the sort of woman who should write a memoir! This book is full of spicy details, vivid images and the perfect blend of Chula s childlike appreciation of small moments and her hard-won wisdom of the soul. There isn t an actress in Hollywood colorful enough to play her in a movie, so it's best to get the story straight from Chula! --Lee Cataluna, playwright, author of Folks You Meet in Longs, Iolani School Creative Writing teacher
