Publication Excerpt

About Innsights: an Innsitter's Tale:

Come along with me on a most interesting journey. In my midlife I changed career courses from social worker to business owner. I became an independent contractor who takes care of bed and breakfasts on a temporary basis while the owners/innkeepers take their vacations. I take the reader along with me as I explain my life, which really was geared all along towards hospitality service and entrepreneurship. In this book I go into detailed discussion concerning how to become an innsitter, and I cover all aspects of running an inn. I include stories about unique and humorous events, episodes with eccentric people which I somehow survived, and flourished in business. My love for the people I serve and who have come to rely upon my service compelled me to write this "tale."
