Blue Apple Switchback began when I sat down at my desk on my fortieth birthday to write a much overdue thank you to a wonderful friend, Charlie. Before I knew what was happening the many emails that followed helped me write my memoir. How do you thank one of those rare friends you meet along the path of life who sees no wrong in you, and who loves you without judgment despite the fact you have a secret you’ve been hiding since you were thirteen?
Shortly after my fortieth birthday, I shifted gears on the biggest switchback of my life. I shed everything I was taught to believe as a young lady growing up in the south and made a choice to be true to myself and everyone else around me.
Blue Apple Switchback is how my bicycle and a mentor’s wisdom help me negotiate life’s many switchbacks.
