Über diesen Titel:
Über den Autor: Bill Wade was born in Bethesda, raised in Montgomery County, MD, and attended University of Maryland. His blood runs red, black, yellow, and white, just like the state flag. His father, a former D.C. fire fighter, hadn?t intended to become a waterman ? until Bill?s mom entered a jingle-writing contest for a Wheaton car dealership and won a boat. The family started with a 16-foot fiberglass run-about, upgraded every time a child was born, and ended up with a more spacious 34-foot wooden cabin cruiser. Their boat, ?Limey,? was built on the Chesapeake Bay, and they docked at Kent Narrows. Summers were spent cruising around the remote necks of the Bay and catching crabs with chicken necks tied to the end of strings. Bill can still pick a crab faster than most workers at a Phillips processing plant. Susan Elnicki Wade grew up in Oil City, a small blue-collar town in western Pennsylvania, eating native brook trout that she and her brothers caught from Allegheny mountain streams. The closest she?d come in her youth to a blue crab were the crawfish they used as bait. She worked in restaurants in Pittsburgh and later in New York while getting her Masters at NYU. She first experienced the Bay during her courtship with Bill when he whisked her off on weekend adventures to such far-flung places as Chestertown, Cambridge, and Ridge, MD. Picking crabs still doesn?t come easy to her, even after visiting every Maryland county along the Bay over the past two decades. But she can whip up a mean batch of fried oysters and recently baked her first Smith Island Cake. Bill and Susan live in Washington, D.C., with their two sons. For years, they?ve brought their boys to the Bay, revisiting the same necks on the Eastern and Western shores where their father used to play and teaching them to appreciate the charms of the Chesapeake. Bill and Susan each have 20+ years experience in the publishing industry and hope to make enough money on this book to buy a boat.
