What They Are Saying . . .
Uncharted Waters is available July 3rd from your favorite local bookstore
or online retailer.
I wrote the book, Uncharted Waters, so that others might experience the Great Lakes, join me in celebrating and protecting them. This is particularly important in an election year—when we have a chance to choose those who will represent us—when we have a chance to insist elected officials make our lakes, our water, a priority.
That was my goal.
As July 3rd approaches, the official publication date, I grow increasingly nervous. For this is my story, the story of a former Fortune 500 executive learning to sail, learning to love, learning to fight for the water and life she holds dear. In sharing it with the world, I feel vulnerable. Naked.
And so I asked people I respect and hold in high esteem to review it—to tell me what they think. And this is what they said . . .
I hope you buy the book—and enjoy it. Maybe even laugh a little. Smile a lot. But above all, I hope you realize we can never take the health of these lakes for granted. Their future is in our hands.

Oh, Mary! I understand the vulnerability you feel, and yours must be ten times mine. My first children’s book will be o. The market in a few weeks. I wrote it easily enough (comparatively to, perhaps, yours) then sat on it out of fear. Then I got the illustrations and sat nearly another year. Then I dove. Soon, splash!

Mary, your reviewers get it! As they say, your book is special because it is more than a memoir, more than an informational text, more than a call to action. In creating it, you have matched the complex nature of our Great Lakes, have taken us deep beneath the surface to a world of beauty and love and passion. It’s OK to feel nervous—that means you’re trying something important in your life. As for your fans, we are simply excited that the gestation period is nearly over. It’s time for Uncharted Waters to be born!
