When a new neighbour invited me to dinner she was surprised to hear how I'd spent my life, she had one thing to say...'you should write a book'. I scoffed, I'd heard all this before and wondered why anyone would be interested in what I of all people had to say. I got home and realized that I SHOULD write a book, I did have something to say and it was important.
I wanted to tell my story of two years that changed my life and will hopefully change others lives too. My story was one of adventure...and meaning.
After participating in twenty Catalina Channel crossings, I knew that I'd learned a lot...a lot that could possibly benefit others.
Now, I hope that what I learned will spread like wildfire throughout the open water swimming world. I have a dream. My dream is that every person who even considers kayaking next to an open water swimmer, or who loves an open water swimmer will read my account of the past two years. I am still not quite sure what drives open water swimmers to do what they do, but I know what drives me....safety!
Safety first, everything else will naturally follow! You do what you do, and I'll do what I do, and in the end we'll get there together...simple as that!
Thanks to everyone, worldwide, for your love and support.
