It Starts With a Little Change ... Thirty-something Beth Anderson may not know it, but she's ready for a challenge. After a cross-country relocation, a failed relationship, and a layoff, she thinks she's just trying to pull her life back together. But she's about to make a series of small decisions that will steer her life onto an entirely different course. Each incremental change is easy, but as Beth soon learns, it's a surprisingly short step from the mainstream to the gulfstream. Seeking Exile follows Beth on her literal and figurative voyage as she learns about the cruising lifestyle and what she thought she already knew: who she is, what she values, and true self-reliance.Author S. Mia McCroskey's work and personal life were at a low point when she decided to take up sailing in her twenties. In Seeking Exile she weaves her own life experience on and around sailboats with a passionate, funny, and romantic tale of exploration and adventure that stretches from New York City to Havana and the Virgin Islands.
A Southern California native, S. Mia McCroskey started writing when she was in ninth grade. She took up sailing when she was in her twenties as an antidote to an unpleasant job. It was a toss up between sailing lessons and pottery classes. She flipped a coin; he quarter was a lucky one. She moved from California to New York for a better job a couple years later and continued sailing in Long Island Sound and the Chesapeake Bay. Since stepping aboard that first soling in Marina del Rey she has become qualified to charter large, valuable sailboats in fascinating locales all over the world. In her professional career she transitioned from a magazine and book editor to managing software development. She attributes most of her leadership skills to her experience handling crews of friends and acquaintances aboard sailboats. She has never owned her own boat, but she did eventually take pottery classes.
