Wendy Hinman

Wendy is the author of two true drama-on-the-high seas books.  

Tightwads on the Loose is a light-hearted memoir about the seven-year, 34,000-mile voyage she took with her husband aboard a small, violently rocking sailboat where she alternated between feats worthy of Wonder Woman and Suzy Homemaker. It's full of humor and armchair thrills. Tightwads on the Loose was selected for the literature program for Western Washington University, won the Journey Award for best true-life adventure story, and was selected a top travel book for women.  

Sea Trials recounts the gripping story of Garth Wilcox’s disaster-riddled voyage around the globe as a teenager with his family in the 1970s. Both books have garnered favorable attention in national press, and Sea Trials was honored by Kirkus Reviews as one of its best nonfiction titles of 2017.  

Wendy is the editor of the Writers Connection (www.writersconnection.org) and at work on her next book, a work of historic fiction. She is an engaging speaker and happy to visit book clubs.
