Jessica H. Stone (Jes) is an author, marketing consultant and long-distance sailor.
Jes and her Border collie, Kip McSnip – the Famous Sailing Dog, sailed together for sixteen years. They cruised the Caribbean, navigated Puget Sound traversed Canada’s waters, sailed the Mexican coast, wandered the Sea of Cortez and crossed the Pacific Ocean. Kip celebrated his eighteenth birthday as they crossed the equator for the first time. Their experiences led to the popular book, Doggy on Deck: Life at Sea with a Salty Dog and the long-running syndicated column, Cruising with Critters.
Sans her four-legged crew Jes sailed the waters of Australia, New Zealand and the Med. Most recently, while serving as crew on a vessel from Panama to the Honduras, she experienced the terror of being chased by (real life) pirates.
Many years of living aboard her 41’ sloop provided a solid foundation for her book, How to Retire on a Boat and for her on-line column, At Home on the Boat.
Following two decades of teaching marketing and strategic business planning at the University of Washington Jes turned her focus to full-time writing and consulting. She is a sought after public speaker and offers presentations on both the sailing, and the writing life.
The manuscript of her first novel, The Last Outrageous Woman on Earth, won First Place in The Somerset Award for Women’s Literary Fiction. The Chanticleer Reviews – Best Book of 2014.
