A sword fisherperson, she has written several books about her adventures. Her latest book, Seaworthy, looks pretty good. I am a few chapters in and hooked. Real life adventures from a real fisherperson, struggling with the challenges and frustrations of fishing in the deep oceans miles from shore, heading a crew.
Malaprop's is a great bookstore and they have weekly writers coming in to speak. They have a great cafe. Stop by to check it out.
In August Linda Greenlaw will have a special on the Discovery Channel, where a camera crew will follow her in her ship and show you her life on the Sea.
