As a commercial fishing wife, girlfriend, or mother, do you feel like you spend your life waiting and worrying from one fishing season to the next? Are you frustrated when, just as you get a routine established after your partner heads to sea, it is time for him to come home—and for you to switch gears once again? Do you alternately love and loathe the commercial fishing lifestyle?
You aren’t alone.
Inside the e-book, Captain of Her Crew: The Commercial Fishing Mom’s Guide to Navigating Life at Home, you’ll find advice that will enable you to take the helm and successfully steer your way through challenges like:
- Seeking respite when you are the only parent at home.
- Adapting to the unique commercial fishing lifestyle.
- Involving your children in the family fishing business.
- Surviving without regular communication with your spouse.
- Managing worry and loneliness.
- Encouraging the bond between the at-sea father and the children at home.
- Making a smoother transition between departures and homecomings.
Within the seventy pages of Captain of Her Crew: The Commercial Fishing Mom’s Guide to Navigating Life at Home, I share my lifetime of experience as a commercial fishing wife, mother, and daughter. I address the questions and concerns that followers of my blog, Highliners and Homecomings, have sent to me over the past five years.
Inside this e-book, you will discover practical advice for addressing the important and relevant issues that you, as the commercial fishing wife and mother at home, face on a daily basis. You will grow in admiration and compassion for your spouse, your family, and—equally importantly—yourself.
Professionally designed and edited, and featuring dynamic color photographs by commercial fishing photographer David Hills, the PDF version of the e-book can be purchased and delivered immediately to your in-box. You may also read a preview and buy the paperback edition on Amazon.com. Choose your preferred shipping method at checkout.

I read your book last week and loved your great advice. My husband and I have had a few tough seasons and homecomings over the last 18 years. But we’re getting better every year! Thanks again for your writing!
Not only am I married to a commercial fisherman, but I also I grew up as a boat kid, so wanted to let you know that your book rang true.
