I have been extremely quiet over the past few months, but for a reason! I have fine-tuned and re-read and edited, and proof-read again my novella / autobiography / travelog on my mid-life adventure of joining 5 strangers, all Norwegians who live on the opposite side of the globe to me, on the Cape to Rio sailing race in January 2011.
The book explains my soul searching after two failed relationships straight after each other, following a 25 year marriage that ended in divorce. At age 49, already starting to experience menopause, I took the bull by the horns, got my skipper’s ticket, and advertised to be crew on board a vessel in the race. A month later, I got my response from Norway! And so started a story that simply has to be told.
Sharing such a confined space for weeks on end with 5 strangers included some love, some pain, anger, frustrations, joy and the ultimate prize was to rediscover who I actually am.
I trust you all go and read the book – it is short, sweet and concise. I have tried to tell it without writing with rose-tinted glasses on, and if I can encourage just one woman to go out and grab whatever life offers, I will be happy. Thanks to all who encouraged me by telling me I CAN write!!! So much appreciated!
Enjoy, the book is available on Amazon.com in 5 days’ time, or as per pic hereunder:
