Xulon Press presents stories converging as two became one.

Watson Kelln recounts her tale as a ‘70s hippie with a score of adventures, while at the same time sharing anecdotes from her husband’s life as a submariner and Naval officer.  After they found one another, their two stories became intertwined.


“This memoir is a coming of age story, with love, struggles/divorces; adventures such as Peace Corps Peru, winter in a tent, and a psychedelic baptism; single-parenting; dramatic encounters with Jesus (and the Holy Spirit); Christian ministry; and the added blessing of a Christian husband in middle age,” said Watson Kelln.
