Welcome

Like stories about boats? You’ve come to the right place. I have three books out in the world and a fourth, Ferry to Cooperation Island, will be published June 16, 2020. I also write for boating magazines and websites.

My weekly blog Where Books Meet Boats discusses the joys of combining coastal writing with competitive sailing. Please subscribe and you’ll automatically receive a post each Thursday, right after it goes live.

I’m often asked how I made the leap from Olympic sailor to author. Though the two achievements would seem to require very different skill sets, they both played to my strengths in combining self-motivation and creativity. (Read Linking It All Together for more detail.)

Occasionally, I’m also asked (by those who’ve known me a really long time) how I made the leap from sailboat rigger to writer. Maybe one day I’ll come up with a good answer to that one.

Thanks for dropping by, and feel free to drop me an email: carolncroninATgmailDOTcom.
