About the Author

Welcome, I'm Linda K. Ford, author of Caution to the Wind and Decrypto: Unlock Your Life Journey. I live in Sydney, Australia, and I have worked for many years as a Social Worker and Natural Therapy Practitioner. My love for writing was inspired into action during the 1990s, when I embarked on an extraordinary, 15-month, sailing adventure, from New Zealand to England. It was not until some years later that I wrote my first book Caution to the Wind, about this life-changing experience. My love affair with the ocean, combined with a genuine passion to support others, is the inspiration behind my writing. I invite you to come on an adventure with me!


Reviewed by Divine Zape for Readers' FavoriteFive Stars. Reviewed by Divine Zape for Readers' FavoriteFive Stars.Caution to the Wind by Linda K Ford is a powerful memoir that had me spellbound - at first, I thought it was fiction - a breathtaking adventure across the seas and a battle against the worst of nature's tempers. The story begins with Geoff telling Linda, the narrator, in a matter-of-fact tone: "I've had a yearning to sail to England ... I've reached a stage in my life where if I don't make the attempt now, it may be lost forever." So saying, he invites her to plan for the adventure. And she does. They plan for months and finally set out aboard the Ebony, a 36-ft Roberts Spray on May 5th 1994. The crew find themselves fighting their way against a devastating storm to Sydney.
The writing is cinematic and the reader is left in no doubt that the narrator played an important part in this adventure. The setting is wonderful and it captures the feeling of being at sea, the elements of the weather and environmental aspects with vivid detail. The narrative is intriguing, the prose exquisitely beautiful and lyrical at times, and the events well-structured to keep readers wanting to know what happens next. Love, friendship, and adventure are among the themes expertly written into the narrative. I couldn't put this one down. Linda K Ford will make you want to pack your bags and set off for the sea.Book Trailer - Caution to the Wind: https: //vimeo.com/283469537
