Book signing in Picton

I am pleased that one of my first book signing events will be at the Naval Marine Archive – The Canadian Collection, in downtown Picton, located in beautiful Prince Edward County on the shores of Lake Ontario.


We were first made aware of the Naval Marine Archive when our boat, Inia, was at Waupoos Marina. Our good friend and dock neighbour, Craig Archibald, told us that this is a “must see” place for anyone into boating. He was right! I was blown away with the incredible collection of books, art, models and displays. It is a truly unique place that you should not miss if you are in the Picton area.

I will be there on Saturday June 15, 2019, from 1 to 3 p.m. with copies of my memoir, Ready To Come About.

The address is 205 Picton Main St, Picton, ON K0K 2T0 in the heart of downtown.

For those from the County, just to let you know, there is local content in the book. Anyone heard of Green Island?

Book launch date is set!

I am so excited to announce the book launch for my memoir, Ready to Come About, being published by Dundurn Press.

Come and join David and me in the celebration! We will have refreshments, live music and readings (yikes!). The book will be on sale, and there will be a cash bar.

Here is a little blurb about the book:

It wasn’t a midlife crisis. She wasn’t running from the law. She didn’t have an adventure-seeking bone in her body. In the wake of a perfect storm of personal events, Sue suddenly became convinced that, in her sons’ best interest, she had to get out of their way. And her husband, David, needed to follow his dream to cross an ocean. So she’d go too.

Ready to Come About, Sue’s debut book, is a compelling memoir about her improbable adventure on the high seas, and her profound journey within, through which she grew to believe there is no more precious gift than the liberty to chart one’s own course, and that risk is a good thing… sometimes, at least.

Early Praise for Ready to Come About:

I love Sue’s book, a startling, swashbuckling sea adventure, and all the hilarious and terrifying details of that, combined with the very personal story of lost connections and deep love. It is a remarkable story — heroic and inspiring.
Miriam Toews, author of Women Talking

A thrilling adventure, a profound love story, and a testament of self-discovery that will make you cheer. It is not only an empowering memoir, but also a very fine book.
Barbara Kyle, author of A Traitor’s Daughter
