Kristoffer Polaha is a staple actor in Lifetime movies and Anna Gomez is a popular author, but the two have been co-authors for some time now, having jointly written “Moments Like This.”

They have now added a second installment to their “From Kona with Love” series. Their new book is called, “Where the Sun Rises.”

“Where the Sun Rises” is out now, and they will be doing a book discussion and signing on Oct. 18 at Barnes and Noble at The Grove. Tickets are available now at
