Please help Monica Hadley and Chamaigne Montana welcome Mary Gottschalk to Fairfield by tuning in to Writers' Voices this Friday at 1pm. Mary is coming in from Des Moines to be a live guest on KRUU and looking forward to exploring our Fair city. After 35 years and six career changes that took her to Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Central America, Mary finished her first book, Sailing Down the Moonbeam. Today, Mary makes her living as a free lance writer and speaker. Her lectures cover topics such as career planning and the amazing things that can happen when you look at risk as a career management tool. Mary’s memoir is the tale of a New York career woman who decided there was more to life than high finance and a million frequent flier miles she would never have time to use. In what seemed like an outrageous risk at age 40, she and her investment banker husband left family, friends and careers behind in favor of seeing the world from the deck of a sailboat. The three-year journey took her through uncharted waters -- in her marriage and her career as well as on the ocean.
