After years trotting the globe for business and vacation travel, she instigated a waterborne adventure, sailing 34,000 miles over seven years with her husband on a 31-foot boat. She even managed to return sane (or so she thinks), still married and innocent of plotting murder. Along the way, she shared many of their (mis)adventures online and in magazines. Yet many still remain untold.
Wendy Hinman’s hit book, Tightwads on the Loose: A Seven-Year Pacific Odyssey, details her seven year adventure afloat. You can find it in paperback, eBook and audio, too!
Her second book, Sea Trials tells the gripping story of her husband Garth’s family in a tireless quest to sail around the world despite daunting challenges including a shipwreck, rebuilding a boat on a remote island, and threats from wild weather, pirates, gun boats, mines and thieves, a broken rig, scurvy and starvation. It is a story of grit and determination. Sea Trials has been named a Kirkus Best Book of 2017. And a Foreword Reviews Best Book! And a Readers Favorite! You can order it here.
