Kurt and Amy Waeschle and familyA longer title of her presentation would be Amy Waeschle's,“The Curious Life of a Writer And how it often gets me in trouble". Club Member Kurt Waeschle introduced his wife, Amy, who described how her journey toward a life of 14-15 years of travel begun by letting inspiration into her life. She asked herself, “What if I did something different?” She tried surfing and fell in love with it enough to quit her job. She wanted to share these feelings so she started writing stories of her adventures and misadventures. She and Kurt traveled a lot: Morocco, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Mexico. She wrote copy for a sportswear catalog, and they moved to Sicily. They then had their two children, and she wondered if she could write about that. She wrote Chasing Waves, a memoir, and then Going Over the Falls, a novel that came out in May of this year. She writes destination pieces, family stories, how to stories, and journalism pieces, along with building a community for surfers, writers, and parents. She brought some of her books to the meeting, agreeing to sell them if the proceeds went to the club. Thank you Amy for the inspiration!
