Stephen Shipley has endorsed your work as Author of Hurricanes & Hangovers at Amazon.com & DearMissMermaid.com.
Dear Dear Miss,
I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.

Details of the Recommendation: "Before satellite views, before facebook, linked-in, myspace, and around the time listservs existed, there lived a Mermaid - who provided invaluable eyewitness events of weather and earthquake reports for sailors, travelers and financiers of the Caribbean. She forewarned sailors of approaching hurricanes arriving and departing through out - which become known affectionately as the Coconut grapevine of the Caribbean - (see http://stormcarib.com). Most notably I remember reading cell phone text messages (late nineties) from the last available wireless networks as those who witnessed coconut cannonballs, in those far out places - the last reports / or alerts as major storms approached or departed. One report I remember - Hurricane Ivan as it approached the Caymans with Category 5 winds and not far away a USGS report of a 6.0 earthquake - as if those who stayed didn't have enough. Stormcarib provided insight into the before and after of what Disaster Recovery is all about, whether you are a sailor, a chef, traveler or banker - it pays to have a coconut grapevine / social network and to read DearMissMermaids stories!!"
