From the Author
My husband took up sailing when I was past my adventurous stage. As much as I love the water and the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay, the uncertainties of sailing were just not my speed. Instead of seeing the beautiful cormorants, the lovely water, or the blue sky, I saw our children as orphans! Or me, falling out of our small boat and being unable to get back aboard!
I was, in short, a pain in the neck.
Nevertheless, I tried to be a good sport, and I did a lot of sailing with him, on "Adventure," the 14-foot Capri, and "Take Two," the 32-foot Endeavour he still owns. And, by the way, in the Virgin Islands, where we rented bare boats.
Somewhere along the line, I thought I might like sailing more if I wrote about it. One day, a new harbormaster at our marina told us about the Alberg he'd rescued. It had sunk at its slip, and he had bought it for salvage, pumped it out, re-floated and restored it.
In his story, the idea for Bloody Point was birthed.
Larry worked at the FBI Academy for more than 27 years. Our kids grew up appearing in his training films--most often as innocent bystanders, once as a bad guy. He made sure the FBI details and the sailing was authentic. I made sure you'd love the characters ... and the cormorants!
