Heidi Love

Memoir Writer
French Polynesia
Ia Ora Na (Polynesian greeting),
I seek an agent for "Laughing at the Sky: A Memoir of Transcendence." Emerging from the trauma of childhood rape, attempted murder and a mother’s madness, I embark on a lifelong dream: to sail 13,000 miles from Maine to French Polynesia on a small boat. This epic voyage unfolds with profound consequences. Raging storms and traumatic PTSD flashbacks at sea uncover repressed memories and threaten my life. Strong women mentors including a therapist who has climbed to 24,000 feet on Mt. Everest, and a sailboat captain who has completed two world circumnavigations with all-female crew, offer personal support and insight for my journey. Riveting scenes illuminate some of the false assumptions and whispered truths about misogyny. My memoir interweaves scenes of darkness and light: horrific violation with remote tropical paradise; gripping adventure with wise indigenous cultures .

Inspired by Cheryl Strayed’s "Wild," my story portrays rising above the assaults of man, nature and self. Comps for this book include "Her" by Christa Parravani and "Without a Map" by Meredith Hall. Ms. Hall, a New York Time’s bestselling author wrote, "I worked with Heidi Love in a four-day writing workshop. Her writing is mature, insightful and courageous."
