Linda Greenlaw lives on Isle au Haut, Maine. She is America’s only female swordfish boat captain and was featured in the book and film The Perfect Storm as well as in the Discovery Channel’s Swords: Life on the Line. Greenlaw is the author of three New York Times bestselling nonfiction books along with two mysteries and a cookbook. She is currently consulting on a fisheries development program in Kenya, where she is helping to design boats and train Kenyans on how to use modern gear and sustainable methods.
Her new book, Lifesaving Lessons: Notes from an Accidental Mother, is the dramatic story of perhaps the most unexpected of all of Greenlaw’s many adventures—becoming a mother.
