About the Journey

One summer, I happened upon information about a story I believe bears telling. Ten years ago, I discovered the father I never knew was lost at sea in 1977. Over the last few months, I’ve learned a lot about the man I never knew. What no one knows is what actually happened when he disappeared.

So many people have been intrigued by my experience that I’ve decided to share my journey turning the information I have into a novel. By profession, I write non-fiction. I’m a personal historian. I’ve never written fiction. With my novel, I’ll be making up much of the story as I go.

In this blog, I’ll share the ups and downs, successes and failures as they happen. When we’re done, you’ll be able to read the finished product, knowing the backstory of how it came to be. Likely, I will turn to readers for opinions or advice as I go.

This, then, is my invitation to you: follow the journey!
