Wren Godfrey was born and raised in Fayetteville, North Carolina. She attended Western Carolina University before striking out for Key West, working on boats in the Bahamas, and experiencing the adventures she shares in her memoir. Along the way, she was a ski instructor, sea kayak guide, inn operator for outdoor enthusiasts, and “house flipper” for more than fifty years. She says people might be surprised to learn that she originally wanted to be a visual artist, not a writer. Today, she splits her time between an ancient house in Camden, South Carolina, and a log cabin on the shoulder of Mount Mitchell, the highest peak of the Appalachian Mountains.
