More About Annie Dike
In Annie’s Words… I was a lawyer until I quit. Six years in the practice taught me two very important things — 1) I love to write (while it was motions, briefs, and arguments then, I still knew I had uncovered my passion in the written word), but 2) I don’t like to do it in an office. Something told me I needed to get away, to travel, to sail, to live a different day every day and write about all of it. I now write full-time and spend the majority of my days cruising our 35-foot Niagara sailboat around Florida’s west coast, the ongoing adventures of which I chronicle on my sailing blog, www.havewindwilltravel.com, and sailing books available on Amazon. I hope you lose yourself in my stories, find yourself in my characters and relish every page. I will keep writing and sailing regardless. It beats the practice at least. Enjoy!
Annie’s book Keys to the Kingdom
Ever dream of quitting the corporate life? The key is to lose the lock. “Annie Dike knows what it is like to escape.” ─ Bob Bitchin, Cruising Outpost Magazine
“Where are you going? What are you going to do? Annie, aren’t you afraid?”
These are the questions they asked of me, that I asked of myself. And my answer? Not enough to let it stop me. We are all afraid to disrupt our lives, to disappoint people with our changing desires. Fear persuades us to maintain security but, for me, the monotony of my life felt like a prison of my own making. When I looked through the hole I’d chipped in my cell, I saw myself─tan, toned, bracing the bow of our boat as it crashed through crystal waves. My God I looked good! I’ll bet if I sneezed confetti would poof out. I was challenged, fulfilled, finally living, feeling and breathing in each moment. That’s when I knew I had to break out, tear my entire life to the ground and start anew.
