  About the author  

Zak B. Tjewell's life has always been boats: Grammar School naval cadets, sailing, designing, building, etc. Except for hitchhiking across North Africa and ending up under house arrest in Libya during the revolution, Zak spent his youth sailing the Caribbean and Mediterranean.
One day, without seeing what was coming, he found himself in Finland. This country was a complete contrast to those far off sunny islands and, in staying here, Zak met his greatest trails.
Several times, he returned to Africa, once to visit a missionary in Kenya, and then again, to teach ambulance drivers to drive ambulance boats on Lake Tanganyika for Swedish charity.
But, Finland is a land of linguists and he stayed. This move proved right as, unlike Zak, who has never managed to learn Finnish, his children all speak several languages fluently.
The nineties recession in Finland again hit Zak hard and he and his wife were out of work. He switched from designing workboats to working with computers and was employed by a software company as technical writer, webmaster, etc.
Unfortunately, once more, the recession has arrived and redundancy has struck. So where to now Zak.?
