About the author

Susan Cole has lived on or around sailboats for more than thirty years. In between sails, she earned a B.A. at Barnard College, an M.A. in Psychology at Columbia University, and for many years, ran a successful market research firm in New York.


Susan was born in Cleveland, Ohio. Her life on the water began when John talked her into buying a romantic, leaky 1903 48-foot Fire Island ferryboat to live on. It sank. Now, years later, John has passed away but Susan’s spirit of adventure lives on. She lives in New Orleans.
