Around the Buoy: Leading an Interesting Life

A few weeks ago, I was a guest on Around the Buoy, a Newport-based podcast about life on the water co-hosted by Carter Richardson and Tyler Fields. Carter is a boatwright (and self-declared “huge fan of the Olympics”), and Tyler is also a wooden boat fanatic and photographer. Thanks to their dry wit, we had plenty of laughs and some great banter—but they’d also done their homework. I was surprised when their introduction and title both referenced my memory of a conversation with my novelist grandmother!

Our free-range discussion covers Olympic memories (including specifics from The No Good, Very Bad Windiest Day), what inspired the Homer S. Morgan (the ferry that runs to Cooperation Island), and the challenges of marketing coastal fiction in 2020. Listen now and let me know in the comments (or by email) what you think! And make sure to tag Around the Buoy as a favorite, wherever you get your podcasts.

PS Around the Buoy just signed on a new sponsor, Regatta Craft Mixers, so I might have to whip up a fresh recipe for Cooperation Punch…
