Linda K Ford  AUTHOR


I have an avid love of being in, on, or by the sea. During the 1990s, I embarked on an extraordinary, 15-month, sailing adventure, from New Zealand to England. It was not until some years later that I wrote my first book "Caution to the Wind," about this life-changing experience. Travel is a special interest of mine, as is exploring different theories of thought. My life is a journey of discovery, where I am driven by a deep curiosity, to unravel how our thoughts & emotions, influence, and impact, on the life we live. My love affair with the ocean, combined with a genuine passion to support others, is the inspiration behind my writing.

"A true sailing Adventure from New Zealand to England"


"...I was on the bow taking down the small storm jib when I faintly heard Geoff call. I could just make him out, a faint blur, seen through the turmoil of the wind and rain. 'Duck, Lin!' he yelled.


My head went down as I tried to avoid the impact of the huge wave that broke over me on the side deck. The remnants of the fresh sea spray trickled down my neck, chilling me even further..." - Chapter 8: The Storm 


This was a life-changing adventure, with a dramatic, unexpected, ending.

Decrypto: Unlock Your Life Journey

David Gunner

Ever taken stock of your life and wondered what was missing? Checked every item on the list of happiness markers but still be unfulfilled and unhappy? Just like the book says, you may find that the thing missing could be you. At first glance, that statement makes absolutely no sense but think about it, if you are living life on the periphery, if you are ignoring your quintessence. Then of course you will be unhappy. Everyone needs to look deep inside themselves and understand who they truly are............ 

Caution to the Wind


Divine Zape - Readers Favorite!


Caution to the Wind by Linda K Ford is a powerful memoir that had me spellbound — at first, I thought it was fiction — a breathtaking adventure across the seas and a battle against the worst of nature’s tempers. The story begins with Geoff telling Linda, the narrator, in a matter-of-fact tone: “I've had a yearning to sail to England ... I've reached a stage in my life where if I don't make the attempt now, it may be lost forever.” So saying, he invites her to plan for the adventure.

And she does.................
