New Brunswick Sea Stories by Dorothy Dearborn goes from miracles to mayhem as the author presents story after story reflecting the times and traditions of two centuries of shipbuilding and shipping in New Brunswick.
"From the Bay of Chaleur through the Gulf of St. Lawrence and into the Bay of Fundy, our waterways are filled with untold stories. Many of those stories are under the sea, in the more than 1,900 shipwrecks resting in their watery graves."
Phantom ships, sea monsters, mutiny and murder find their places beside stories of those Iron Men of the sea who sailed their ships around the world time and time again in the most dangerous circumstances. Heroism has its place here as well, in truth the stories in this book reflect the good and the bad that follows us through life ... wherever we are.
About the Author:
Dorothy Dearborn began writing as a child and published her first poetry and short stories in the 1950s. A television career in the 1960s was interrupted by 6 years of front-line political involvement before choosing journalism as a career. She served in various editorial positions, including that of city editor, at the Saint John Times Globe and was editor of two weekly newspapers, The Kings County Record and the Saint John Citizen.
Among her many interests are the promotion of adult literacy in New Brunswick and an often frustrating romance with Duplicate Bridge.
Mrs. Dearborn continues to work as a journalist contributing regularly to regional, national and international newspapers and magazines and, in recent years established and publishes her own magazine, We’re Home.
When not traveling the province researching and collecting stories and information for her work she can be found in front of her Macintosh computer at the family’s 19th century farmhouse in Hampton, in the company of her new dog, Golden Boy. Ancient pony ‘Soupy’ and a motley assortment of other critters roam the fields.
She is married to Fred Dearborn, they have four grown children and numerous grandchildren.
