Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve wanted to be a writer and a sailor. My mother was an English teacher who loved to read and write, and my father was a sailor. It’s in my blood, and I have been fortunate enough to be able to do what I dream of doing.
My current boat is the home I share with my partner in life, Wayne Hodgins, and our two dogs, Ruby the Wonderdog and Barney, the Yorkshire Terror. Learnativity is a 52-foot Kristen steel motorsailer built in Sidney, BC.
My previous boat was a 1989 Caliber 33 named Talespinner. I owned her for nine years and sailed her from Key West to Annapolis and out to the Bahamas.
