Wendy Hinman is an adventurer, speaker and the award-winning author of two books, Tightwads on the Loose and Sea Trials. Tightwads on the Loose a popular travel adventure book about the 7-year, 34,000-mile voyage she took with her husband aboard a small violently rocking sailboat where she alternated between feats worthy of Wonder Woman and Suzy Homemaker. It's full of humor and armchair thrills. Tightwads on the Loose won the Journey Award for best true life adventure story and was selected as a top travel book for women. Her newest book, Sea Trials: Around the World with Duct Tape and Bailing Wire has been awarded Kirkus Best Book of 2017 by Kirkus Reviews, the elite reviewing agency. Fewer than 2% of all books earn a starred review. Even fewer are selected Best Book of the Month and, fewer still, Best Book of the Year. Wendy Hinman’s second book, Sea Trials can claim all three. It has also just been named a finalist in the Foreward Reviews best book of the year. It has earned glowing reviews from national press and been featured in various gift guides. The buzz about this talented author continues to build as she follows up her laugh-out-loud award winning Tightwads on the Loose with another compelling true story of adventure and the stubbornness of dreams.
