"Esse and the Assassin"
A quiet retirement. The end of a long career working for the government as an assassin, and a fixer. Now the peace and quiet of the nature refuge. In your dreams!! Rescue some Latina girls from the sex trade, add in a beautiful crazy Spanish woman. Fate sometimes alters the plan.
"Coastal Cruising Reflections"
is a collection of boat logs and stories about sailing my 25' Ericson fixed keel sloop, named Aegir, along the New England Coast from Cape Cod to New Brunswick, Canada. Aegir and I sailed together for thirty years. The single handed sailor alternates between boredom and terror. (I exaggerate)
"The Chassahowitzka River"
will introduce you to a river dear to our hearts. It is a journey where we will show you pictures of the things that have caught our interest. Places, Birds, Flowers, People, and the Springs that made the river famous. Dozens of trip in our Jon boat (we still go out there) got us to where we needed to be.
"Coastal Cruising for Trailer Sailors"
is about sailing in Coastal New England on three different trailer sailors, swing keel sloops, (17', 21', 25') all named Aegir. Sailing Aegir was scary, and fun. I learned a lot, the hard way. I slowly became a sailor. My first book covers five years of Coastal Sailing.
Remember, e-books save trees.
I was raised in Eastern Maine...in a little fishing village called Jonesport. I attended the University of Maine, and am the mother of three beautiful daughters. (ok, 2 of 3) Because of my love for flowers, I started a business called "Purrfect Posies".
Living in cranberry country (not just fishing country) led to my purchase of an internet business called Weownit Cranberry Company. I worked for eighteen years at Jonesport Nautical Antiques. I would describe the pay there as "slave wages!" I am also a sailor, photographer, and swamp dweller.
A New Englander. I served in the Army Security Agency in Germany and stayed in Europe for a while. Later I taught Sociology at the high school level.
I have spent a lifetime around the water. As a kid, rivers, swamps, and ponds. Later, it was lakes, large and small. A few dives in the Florida Keys, the Bahamas, and Belize.
My interests include writing, nautical antiques, sailing the coast of New England, and exploring the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge.
Our books reflect where we live. Florida in the winter - Maine in summer.
We use kayaks and a Jon boat to explore the Chassahowitzka River and the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge.
When we return to Jonesport, Maine we sail and sometimes race "Irene" a Cape Dory 25s on Chandler Bay in Downeast Maine.
Summer- Maine ; Winter - Florida
