Welcome

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

My Thursday 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 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.

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.
