Where Books Meet Boats

Like stories about boats? You’ve come to the right place.

Ferry to Cooperation Island, my fourth coastal fiction novel, is now available in paperback, ebook, and audiobook. Reader response has been fantastic—which is great incentive to finish the sequel.

My weekly blog Where Books Meet Boats dives deep into the joys of a life that combines coastal writing and competitive sailing. Please subscribe and you’ll automatically receive a post every Thursday morning.

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.
