Last Year’s Winner of the Richter Publishing Writing Contest, Alder Allensworth, Featured in the Tampa Bay Times

Last Year’s Winner of the Richter Publishing Writing Contest, Alder Allensworth, was featured in the The Tampa Bay Times. Here is an excerpt from that article—

alder

“When Alder Allensworth achieves one audacious goal, she goes after another one.

So far, the 60-year-old cancer survivor has sailed 1,200 miles solo on a small boat, backpacked 500 miles alone on a pilgrimage from France to Spain, become a registered nurse, written an award-winning book, and worked with a sailing foundation for disabled veterans.

“I’ve always had a zest for life,” Allensworth said.

If anything, her zeal has grown since met death eye to eye and emerged with just one left.”
