Have Wind Will Travel
I was a lawyer until I quit. Six years in the practice taught me two very important things — 1) I love to write (while it was motions, briefs, and arguments then, I still knew I had uncovered my passion in the written word), but 2) I don’t like to do it in an office. Something told me I needed to get away, to travel, to sail, to live a different day every day and write about all of it. I now write full-time and spend the majority of my days cruising our 35-foot Niagara sailboat around Florida’s west coast, the ongoing adventures of which I chronicle on my sailing blog, www.havewindwilltravel.com, and sailing books available on Amazon. I hope you lose yourself in my stories, find yourself in my characters and relish every page. I will keep writing and sailing regardless. It beats the practice at least. Enjoy!

OneBlood is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) community asset responsible for providing safe, available and affordable blood to more than 200 hospital partners and their patients throughout most of Florida, parts of Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina.
We distributes nearly one million blood products annually, employ more than 2,000 people, operate more than 80 donor centers and deploy more than 200 of our signature Big Red Buses throughout our service area for blood drives. (Click here to view the OneBlood service area map).
OneBlood has multiple laboratories, manufacturing and distribution sites strategically located throughout our service area enabling quick response to hospital needs and availability of blood products.
Safety of the blood supply is OneBlood’s top priority. Every unit of blood undergoes more than a dozen tests to ensure it is safe for transfusion. Regardless of where the blood is donated in our service area, all blood samples are delivered via a OneBlood courier to Creative Testing Solutions (CTS), our state-of-the-art testing facility in St. Petersburg, Florida. (Click here to see video of our testing facility)
The blood center is heavily regulated by The Food and Drug Administration (FDA). We are required to follow all FDA rules and are subject to planned and unplanned inspections to ensure complete compliance.
