The Lucy Alice under sail in Prince William Sound.

I’ve been kayaking for about 25 years but recently just completed my first sailing trip.

Four of us lived on a 28-foot sailboat for a week in Prince William Sound. Quarters were cozy but we all got along fine.


Using the wind to the best of our ability.

We had a couple days of clear skies.

One of four Orcas we encountered.

Followed by several days of rain.


One of the many icebergs we saw.

My friends who own the boat were in the middle of reading Surviving Bear Island. Each night I got to read a chapter or two out loud to them as we rocked at anchor in the place where Surviving Bear Island is set.


Our nightly reading of Surviving Bear Island inside the cozy Lucy Alice.

We made it back to port safely.


Unofficial greeter just outside the port of Valdez.

I went on to do a couple of book events in more traditional locations.


Fireside Books, Palmer, Alaska.


Barnes & Noble, Anchorage, Alaska.
