About two years ago I came across an interesting story about a girl who fell in love with some guy, and was sailing the world with him. I tried to reach out to her for an interview, but as you can imagine somebody on a sailing trip doesn't always have the most reliable internet connection. In the mean time she self-published a book, a movie producer bought the rights, and now the book is available through three major publishers. My friend Torre DeRoche has an amazing story, and I think you're going to learn a ton from this interview. Here are some highlights from our chat:
