About the Author

Sue Collins, who has been a nurse for 38 years and a hospice nurse for 28 years, wasn't at first called to nursing. In high school, it seemed like an easier course -- or maybe much more practical -- than a purely academic course. She discovered she was good at it. But when she was working in a hospital in Baltimore, she would occasionally see the nurses who worked on the 4th floor in the hospice ward in the cafeteria. "Something was different about them," she says now. "It was like they KNEW something that the rest of us didn't. They seemed more peaceful, calm. I wanted to know what was going on on that fourth floor!" which is how she got into being a hospice nurse. She lives in Maryland, competes in sculls with the local rowing club, enjoys her two grown children and her granddaughter as well as partying with her husband and friends. Nancy Taylor Robson grew up sailing and building boats with her father on the Chesapeake Bay. After earning a degree in history, she married a tugboat captain and then became one of the first women in the country licensed by the U.S.Coast Guard to run coastal tugboats. She spent six years working on coastal tugs until the birth of her first child. Woman in The Wheelhouse (reissued in paperback by Head to Wind Publishing in 2013) is the story of those six romantic, adventure-filled, sometimes harrowing years. She is the author of two novels: the award-winning coming of age story, Course of the Waterman (River City Publishing, 2004) and A Love Like No Other: Abigail and John Adams, A Modern Love Story (Head to Wind Publishing 2012). Her essays, features, travel, garden writing and maritime reportage and analysis has appeared in regional, national and international magazines and newspapers. She is an organic Master Gardener, food writer, cook and avid eater, and the mother of two grown children. She lives with her husband of many years' worth of adventures both at sea and on land.
