Sonia Marsh, author of Freeways to Flip-Flops: A Family’s Year of Gutsy Living on a Tropical Island, celebrates the gutsy in each of us with this collection of stories from 64 authors who found the courage to face their fears and live their dreams. What makes these stories unique is the authors’ willingness to openly share the obstacles they surmounted, and the strength they developed to overcome doubt, fear, rejection, and grief. These stories of love, courage and adventure will inspire you to follow their lead and experience your own gutsy adventure. If one story speaks to you directly and results in a change in your own life, please e-mail Sonia Marsh directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. As Sonia says, “My goal is to bring out the gutsy in you.”
Some take off for distant places, others dive into the deep. Many quit successful jobs to sail around the world, write a novel, or take on an inner challenge. This book is filled with tales from people who have decided to live their passion, act out their dreams, revisit the challenges of their youth. It’s about conquering fears, taking risks, and learning to love the person you’ve become. Leap into this book. It’ll be the first of some gutsy decisions you’re sure to make.
