Uncharted: a Journey from the End to a New Beginning follows a his and hers perspective to overcoming common obstacles, sea monsters, trials, and temptations post-divorce.
We all start at the cliff of separation. From there we each set sail on a new heading. Will you head to Numb Island or choose adventures on the high seas? Either way, the goal lies in finding your own personal post-divorce nirvana.

She’s a passionate survivor of life’s road bumps dedicated to continuously building on life’s opportunities. A hopeless optimist, she invites readers into a candid look at her experiences in finding her way through divorce to a life richer than she imagined.

The cliff was as tall as the white cliffs of Dover, the sky a clear blue with drifting white clouds drawn by a gentle breeze. As we stood there on the edge looking out to the curve of the world and the outline of distant shores, our path became two. We could no longer move forward, but instead two paths now lead in directions opposite of the cliff’s edge. It was there that we separated. I watched for a long time as you had set off on your new path. Then I turned and set off alone. How we came to this cliff is another story for another time. This one is for the discovery of a new path to an unknown destination.
“It’s funny and straightforward. Really helpful to see both sides and I could definitely relate to all of the different issues. It’s true to life and made me forget why I was reading in the first place.” – Jason P.
“It’s just so honest. I can see myself in the stories. A practical but warm collection of stories that made me remember I am not the only one who has ever felt this way.” -Gene T.
“I just read “Uncharted”. I loved it. Two real people sharing what happened, what they did, and where they are now. Nothing sugar coated, but no horrible war stories about “them”. What was evident to me by the end of the book is the hard work, backing off to breathe, and making the highest possible choice at any given interaction, creates hope. I highly recommend it to anyone working through a passage.” – Deb C.
