In my first book of the "Sea of Destiny" series, Breeze, a young girl, from a small seaport town on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, casts herself into the sea and into a passage unknown...the world of yachting. Knowing that she has to expand her horizons, she trusts in herself enough to travel to the Caribbean on a 41 foot sailboat with three strangers and embarks on a career as a chef, stewardess, and first mate on yachts in the Caribbean during the first year and venturing across the Atlantic for the next season following the sun, and sea of adventure. Each yacht brings experiences of a lifetime, some hilarious, romantic, some bitter sweet, and out of control crazy, but every port provides new cultures and foods to embrace, and learn from. Breeze jumps right into the sea as a mermaid would and fears nothing. It's a lunatic's rum tour at times, but sailing and cooking keeps her centered in the craziness of it all. Joni Dennis resides in Beaufort, NC, creating healthy food products and cooking on yachts.
