to reinvent herself one curve at a time.


With Blind Curves, sought-after executive Linda Crill proves that taking a risk

is more effective than always playing it safe.

TROY, N.Y. -- Rebellion is expected from teenagers, but not from a 57-year-old corporate executive. When Linda Crill loses her husband to cancer, she overachieves at following one-size-fits-all advice for new widows. But eighteen months later, she is still miserable and asking, "What now?"

Frustrated, she threatens to do the least likely action she could ever imagine: learn to ride a motorcycle! The next day when CEO friend, Ron, reveals that he organizes motorcycle tours and dares her to join his groups’ upcoming 2,500-mile road trip down America's Pacific Northwest coast, it seems the universe is sending her a message. Her knee-jerk reaction? "No way!" But his proposition starts her thinking—perhaps doing something completely out of character is just what she needs.

With absolutely no motorcycle riding experience, and an aversion to the machines’ dangerous and noisy presence on the road, Linda accepts her friend’s challenge.  

Blind Curves: One Woman’s Unusual Journey to Reinvent Herself and Answer: What Now? (Opus INTL, ISBN: 978-0-9858985-0-2, $16.95) is the adventure story of a woman’s effort to find new meaning as she tests her “old” Linda repertoire—beliefs, behaviors, life experiences, and spiritual wisdom—in trying to survive the challenges presented by such a formidable goal.

In this funny, irreverent and extraordinarily honest book, Crill outlines a scenic and challenging coastal ride from Vancouver Island to the Mendocino Wine Country, revealing her own epiphanies along the way. Readers can take power from Crill’s odyssey and discover that heading into the unknown – the blind curve –expands life’s horizons by revealing new possibilities and ways of being.
