About the Author

As developmental editor, SUSAN SCHMIDT polishes science and history books, novels, and memoirs-listed among Top Ten Editors in New England. She has been a professor of literature and environmental decision-making, and a government science-policy analyst.

She has had a Coast Guard Captain's license thirty-six years. She wrote the grant to buy Carrot Island and Bird Shoal in Beaufort for the NC Estuarine Reserve. She has a doctorate in American literature and Masters degrees in Environmental Sciences and British lit.
She read literature at Oxford and, postdoc, studied bioethics and environmental mediation.

To witness natural diversity, she walked the Camino de Santiago, Cornwall Coastal Path, Scottish Highlands, Ireland's Ring of Kerry,
Snowdonia in Wales, Guernsey and Brittany, and the Appalachian Trail. She surveyed birds in Kenya, Ecuador, Belize, and Iceland; paddled Alaska's Prince William Sound and New Zealand's Milford
Sound; and delivered sailboats to the West Indies. Her homeplace is the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia, and her homeport is Beaufort, North Carolina, where she walks beaches with her Boykin Spaniel.

Her poems won the Guy Owen Poetry Prize and appear in LiteraryTrails of Eastern North Carolina; two poems were finalists for the James Applewhite Prize. She wrote Landfall Along the Chesapeake,
In the Wake of Captain John Smith, an ecological history and boat adventure; Song of Moving Water, a novel about a young woman who organizes her community to oppose a dam; and Salt Runs in My Blood, poems about fish, birds, playing in boats, and walking long trails.
