 About the Book 

Working as an accounting clerk in Atlanta, GA at age 27, I decided to leave the place I grew up, my family and my friends, and move to Hawaii to find adventure, discover the beauty of nature, and explore the spiraling depth of my own psyche.No GirlMoreWorking as an accounting clerk in Atlanta, GA at age 27, I decided to leave the place I grew up, my family and my friends, and move to Hawaii to find adventure, discover the beauty of nature, and explore the spiraling depth of my own psyche.No Girl is an Island is a humorous story of hope, and heartbreak, in which I learn a handful of important life lessons while living in a remote jungle community in the Puna region of Big Island, Hawaii. Having never visited a tropical location, I had only ideals of paradise in mind for my new home, and after the ordeal of preparing to move overseas, I expected to lounge on white sandy beaches, sip tropical alcoholic beverages, and maybe fit in a few surf lessons. Living with no electricity or plumbing in a small community comprised of jungle hippies, I am forced to examine my surroundings, my interpersonal skills, and myself with a new perspective. The lush, untamed Kalapana jungle is the back drop for my memoir, No Girl is an Island.I adapted this memoir into book form from a blog that I kept while on my Hawaiian adventure.
