Out Of The Fog!  

A Story of Survival, Faith and Courage

Out Of The Fog!  is for those wishing to seek a happy and joyous life, free from addiction and wanting to learn how to push fear aside and step off the dime into a rewarding adventurous life. This is the inspiring story of a 35-year old woman who had everything— until Demon Rum crept in to take it all away.  At eight years sober, the author buys a sailboat, teaches herself to sail, and embarks mostly alone, sometimes with her rebellious teenaged daughter, on a seven-year spiritual odyssey in the Pacific. Smith’s book offers a heart-warming, sometimes terrifying testament to triumph over adversity.

“Out of the Fog!” offers painful but compelling insights into mother-daughter relationships and illustrates the power of hope, faith and courage.

Thy Sea Is So Great!

 Sails and Telltales

This is the working title of Smith’s third book, currently a “work in progress”. It follows her adventures aboard the 35-foot sailboat she bought when she was 43 with no knowledge of sailing. With eight years of sobriety tucked into her life jacket, the author spent almost three years teaching herself how to sail up and down the coast of California. Then the Big Blue beckoned and off she sailed, mostly alone or sometimes with her rebellious teenaged daughter,  on a five-year spiritual odyssey from San Francisco to the Polynesian Triangle somewhere off Easter Island. Says Smith, ” Terrifying? yes! Scary? yes! Life-threatening? yes! Life-changing? no doubt! Fabulous, absolutely and I’d do it again!”
