Todd Foley

Author Todd Foleyabout this book: Eastbound Sailing is the story of Aiden Lawrence, a jaded man who can't reconcile with his past, present or future. When he goes to check up on his late father's cabin on a small island in the Pacific Northwest, he meets three locals who drastically shape his path and bring the truth of his past to the surface.

The title represents a cyclical journey through a broken world in pursuit of redemption - a pursuit that often forces us backwards before letting us rest. We have this idea of sailing into the west [very linear], but sometimes we have to revisit the past before we can move forward.

The biggest struggle was getting to know the characters and figuring out how they would talk, what sort of words they would use, how they would respond to circumstances, what worldview they possessed and what happened in their pasts. This held up the writing process for a while as I studied people around me as well as characters in other books and films. It let the story come into being.

I hope my readers see some sense of hope in Aiden's story, because we're all human and we all need hope.
