Join me on a voyage to the wilds of southern Chile in the final decade of the 20th century…

The world–and the nation of Chile–have changed since my family moved from the Chiloé Islands more than 30 years ago. Yet, my love for these intriguing islands doesn’t change. I’ve never been able to get the microcosm of incredible beauty and equally incredible pain and need out of my head or heart. So here at Seaglass Sagas, I’ll attempt to share my experiences of life in Chile. And you’re invited to join this circle of friends and readers on a journey of transformation as well.

“The Spirit of God, the Master, is on me… He sent me to preach good news…heal the heartbroken, announce freedom to all captives, pardon all prisoners. God sent me to announce the year of His grace…and to comfort all who mourn, to…give them bouquets of roses instead of ashes, messages of joy instead of news of doom, a praising heart instead of a languishing spirit… Take the rubble left behind and make it new.” –Isaiah 61: 1-4, MSG

You’re also welcome to share the path to publication of all my Inspirational (Christian) YA/New Adult Romantic Adventures, featuring Chile in a recent-past setting. You can learn more about my first book, Destiny at Dolphin Bay (2021), on this page. The second in the Desert Island Diaries series, Pursuit of the Pudú, is recently published by Heart Ally (February 2024). A nonfiction travel memoir, Return to Chiloé: Treasures from the Island (2023), recounts a real-life trip to the Chiloé Islands.
