Also available on Ingram, and all popular book platforms.


Unafraid to ‘rock the boat,’ this sailor-turned-author drops her truth bombs—like an anchor. Here’s your chance to live vicariously through one woman's journey of finding her voice, taking control of her health, and discovering her passions, strength and capacity for love and forgiveness. 

Join Carole as she moves onto a boat, adapts to a new lifestyle, learns hard ‘beginner’ lessons, sails the breathtaking ocean, survives gale storms, and navigates life for 20 years in a meager 41 feet of living space with an unconventional husband and, of course, a dog.

S.A.I.L. Above the Clouds weaves big emotions, humorous impasses, and motivating results through topics such as overcoming major health concerns and chronic disease, tackling mental health, surviving the doldrums of a 30-year marriage, discovering life’s purpose, and learning when you’re the crab’s dinner, or receiving a naked spank from Mother Nature.

How to SIMPLIFY Your Life is the first of a four-book series where each book represents a unique aspect from the author’s signature program S.A.I.L: Simplify, Align, Integrate, Let Go.

Readers will benefit from tips and insights on how to simplify all aspects of their life while exploring different healing modalities, writing prompts and exercises following each chapter.

It is packed with stories that will make readers laugh, cry, or cringe—all weaved into an interactive set of tools that invites you to dive deep into a journey of self-discovery and come out of it energized, enlightened, and inspired!

Raise your sails and set course on an exciting and purpose-driven adventure!

***** REVIEWS *****

“You must read this book. Wisdom shines through every page. A gem.”

- Marianne Bennett-Altschul, BSW, MSW, RYT

Introspective Thought at Your Own Pace!
"S.A.I.L Above the Clouds sails way beyond the literary category of “sailing” or “self-help”. The author opens your mind to YOUR life challenges and possibilities as she takes you on her journey in pursuing the same. The content and coaching direction of this book is not over generalized or “prescriptive”. An entertaining, authentic, relatable ride that provokes introspective thought at your own pace. Highly recommend. Quick read." -Jody. St. Andre

"I read this book in two days, couldn’t put it down. It is so well written and a great story. You will probably recognize yourself in some of the stories. It is a must read for every woman and probably most men. Written by a strong woman who takes life’s negatives turns them around and uses them to help others. Quite the life so far, Bravo."
- Danielle Boulay


Every part of this book resonates!
"Oh boy! What a book for our times! Everything in it resonates with me. I have been a path of self-discovery and self-growth for the last 6 years. What a time of learning and healing! And this book works right into that: I was so eager to do (and did) all the exercises because I have already learned what a boon this work on self-awareness can be. Also, my dream (that I'm working on with all my heart) is to become a cruiser - to travel, explore, and adventure by sailboat. Carole's book encompasses everything important to me. Thank you, and I can't wait for the next one!"
- Susan Crowe

Humor, truth, and lessons, oh my!

"Relatable and inspirational—this book made me want to keep reading! I already want to reread it and take more time to do the exercises at the end of each chapter. What a life of adventure, trials and tribulations these folks went through. I especially appreciate her ability to find a positive lesson in it all. Oh, and the humor, honesty, and transparency were so refreshing. I found myself smiling a lot while reading...I loved it!" -Kris P.

"This is a fantastic read. The book is very well written and keeps you engaged from beginning to end. Looking forward to her other books." - Amazon Reader

Could not put it down…..Must Read!

"A book full of sailing adventures, deep reflections and simple tools to consciously better your life. The author brilliantly relates life experiences into life lessons in order to achieve a better mind, body and soul connection. Absolutely loved it! Can't wait for book #2!” -  Brian

A work of inspiration and knowledge

​“This book was a joy to read. A series of short stories that convey the author's struggles and triumphs and leaves you with the realization that anything in life is possible if you listen to your heart and use your wits. Also included at the end of each chapter are words of wisdom and advice with tools to guide you to reach a better place of contentment. I especially liked the chapter on getting rid of material things, a personal ongoing struggle.
Highly recommend. MAB”  - Wizard

Messages of simplicity and inner growth. 

"This book seemed to come into my life at just the right time. The messages of simplicity and self-help exercises at the end of each delightfully addicting chapter, was just what I needed. As I venture into a new and unknown part of myself at 54. Thank you Carole for your honesty and openness into your private life. I laughed and cried openly. Looking forward to your next novella." -Kym P.
