Description


Fran Taylor was born and grew up in Scotland on the banks of the River Clyde. From her earliest days she watched ships of all types going up and down the River and became fascinated with the sea and all things maritime. She first went to sea at age fourteen, with a school group on a converted ex-troop ship. In 1966 she emigrated to Australia and had a varied working life, culminating in a career as a contracts engineer in the oil and gas industry after furthering her education as a mature-age student at Perth's Edith Cowan University where she gained a Bachelor's Degree. She has sailed all over the world in a number of "Tall Ships" and has had a number of articles published. She is a regular on the guest speaking circuit around Perth where she lives when not pursuing her dreams and answering the call of the sea. In 2012 she took part in the Titanic Memorial Cruise, a special event to commemorate the 100th
anniversary of the sinking. This book tells that story.
