Since 1998 I have written, edited, and designed for the marine industry. Working initially under the company name Live Wire and now under my own name, I specialize in stories about boats—both fact and fiction.

I publish a weekly blog about books, boats, publishing, sailboat racing, and the amazing connections I find as I make my way around the writing and sailing worlds. Please subscribe and you’ll automatically receive a post each Thursday, right after it goes live.

I have three books out in the world and a fourth, Ferry to Cooperation Island, will be published June 16, 2020.

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.
