April 2020
Greetings from Northern Bliss!
Spring arrived in a whirlwind of uncertainty but nature continues to bloom, bringing signs of hope. Since the introduction of my third book, The Long Way Back , I’ve been busy writing blogs and posting on social media. Blogs are a lot of fun because I can write one in a day. My blog is called Sailors Tales. Adventures in Travel, Sailing, and the Great Outdoors. During the past year, I’ve written about a variety of different subjects. My most recent blog, Spring In The Time of Coronavirus, describes ways to keep ourselves busy while staying safe at home.

I try to post blogs on a regular basis and if you haven’t done so please “follow” my blog by clicking the "follow" button. So far, I now have 939 followers. You could help me reach 1000!

If you’re into social media, please “like” my Facebook Author page and “heart” the photos you like on my Instagram feed. Included in there My Twitter handle is @sailorstales

My PIP Productions team has been adding to the website, http://www.loisjoyhofmann.com to make it the go-to place to find clever quotes , and my most recent Wisdom from the Sea posts.

Have a safe Easter weekend as we hold hope for renewal and wish everyone to stay healthy!
Past Events 2020
I had the pleasure of presenting at the Point Loma Public Library in February. We had an excellent turn out. What an honor for Gunter and me to share our experiences with this wonderful community of readers and sailors!


Upcoming Events 2020

Stay tuned for announcements of my Summer book tour. The intention is to tour local libraries and other venues throughout the Wisconsin area in August 2020.

Review, The Long Way Back
“This is also the most romantic volume of the trilogy…”
“…adorned with spectacular color photographs, and the author furnishes a surfeit of intriguing asides about the lands they visit.”
“…an incisive and granular travelogue for those who want to emulate the author’s journey…”
“…her accounts of cultural mores are fascinating, as in her astute comparison of Thai and Malaysian history.”
“A beautifully produced travelogue…”
