Greg Frucci published his first book, “Inspiration From A Muse: Poems To Her”
During the Spring of 2011, Frucci sailed a 30 foot, single mast sailboat to Bermuda from Wilmington, North Carolina as leg one of an intended journey across the Atlantic Ocean to Lisbon, Portugal...alone. The event has inspired two books.
The crossing to Bermuda lasted 8 days. Frucci was planning on a 6 day crossing, however he ran into a gale storm about 300 miles offshore into the 700 mile voyage. After beating into the storm for about five hours, he decided along with the encouragement of a US Coast Guard C-130 aircraft crew flying around him, to turn around 180 degrees and head back the way he came, “running with the storm”. After another nine hours, the seas calmed allowing Frucci to turn his little vessel around and continue to Bermuda. The Cuddy, sustained some damage, yet he was able to make it to Bermuda. Upon returning to Wilmington this past June, Frucci began writing a book, “A Peaceful Journey Home: Changing Course” about how he arrived at this point in his 50 years of life and the spiritual journey to this day.
During the process of preparation, sailing to Bermuda and arriving back here in Wilmington, Frucci also wrote poetry. In writing the main book, “A Peaceful Journey Home: Changing Course”, Frucci began placing all of the poetry within the text and realized he already had a book which can be published...a book of poetry. Thus, “Inspiration From A Muse: Poems To Her” was published on August 9, 2011 and is available on Amazon.com as well as other outlets internationally. The poetry book is a love story of not just between two people, but of Life itself.
