Karen Clark

Author of Mediterranean Summers: How a Man,
a Woman and a Dog Spent Eight Summers
Exploring the Ancient Sea in a Small Boat

Karen Heath Clark, a native of Southern California, was a partner at the international law firm of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP in Newport Beach for 25 years.  When she retired in 2003 her second life began.  On a trip driving aimlessly through Turkey in 1997 – their typical unplanned travel style - she and her husband chartered a Turkish gullet for one night when local hotels looked unappealing.  One memorable night on the rocking wooden boat (similar to a Chinese junk), changed their lives.  They became determined to spend a year, maybe more, on their own boat – chartered or bought – in the Mediterranean.
Fiercely independent travelers, they set about researching their future adventure and soon realized they would have to learn through hit-or-miss experience.  Their adventures on 39’ trawler, morphed into eight years.  Cruising from Spain to Eastern Turkey and back, through France, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Greece, Turkey and North Cyprus, they faced potential disaster every day.  It was not an undertaking for the faint-hearted.  The edgy adventure, full of risk and potential disaster, proved to be the best years of their lives. 
Karen’s book about their adventure, and her biography of Bill Clinton, published by Nova Science Publishers, are available at the Newport Beach Public Library.Karen.h.clark@gmail.com
