Swell Book Release & Tour!

It’s here!! I received my first copy of my book! It feels pretty wild to hold the culmination of a lifetime of dream-chasing and three plus years of writing in my hands. I’m proud of the manuscript, but the way it came together artistically just blows me away! I can’t give enough praises to my team at Patagonia Books–illustrator, Daniella Manini, designer Mary Jo Thomas, photo editor Jenning Steger, director Karla Olson, and editor Sharon AvRutick, along with many others at who gave such expertise and attention to detail to make this book turn out so beautiful.

I hope that sharing my personal story will empower others to follow their hearts and dreams, to love their own flaws and imperfect stories, to take their own adventure no matter how small or how big, and seek to feel connection with all life. I read Tania Aebi’s Maiden Voyage as a young woman and it opened my mental horizon to the possibility that I, too, could be a captain and sail the world. The greatest reward for sharing my story, will be to see where the next generation of young sea adventurers, especially the ladies, will sail.

If you’d like, you can order my book here. And/or you can come to one of these book tour stops next month!! All events are free and no tickets needed. I will be showing the book trailer video, talking story, reading passages, and signing books. There will be limited edition posters & cups (free), T-shirts, and of course books available!
