A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I am a Wyoming ranch girl who migrated to the East Coast and is now firmly rooted in New Hampshire. I have two grown daughters who migrated West and they are my inspiration. I walked El Camino de Santiago de Compostela when I was 66 and it was the most transformative experience of my lifetime (so far). I love to travel, I love hiking and camping. I am sailor and I have my private pilot's license. Photography and writing are the two ways I express myself best.
About the book
Walking from Here to There: Finding My Way on El Camino is about what I experienced doing the 500 mile Pilgrimage across northern Spain. It is full of facts, details, reflection, and information. I met Pilgrims from age 8 to 78 and from 40 countries. I offer suggestions and I hope to inspire others to reach for their own stars. We are all on a pilgrimage our whole lives, always searching for meaning, always connecting with other people. I want my book to speak to people who plan to go and people who know they won't and want to know what it is like. Transformation is a powerful word and the Pilgrimage of The Way of St. James is truly transforming. It was hard and it was amazing and I hope my book captures this for the reader.READ MORE
