Hoffmann and her husband, Günter, escaped the corporate world — where Hoffmann sat at the top of the corporate ladder as the CEO of a publicly traded biomedical company — for a life on the high seas after they turned 60 years old, embarking on a sailing trip that would change their lives.
After sailing around the world during an eight-year adventure, Hofmann began to write her nautical trilogy, “In Search of Adventure and Moments of Bliss.” Her first two books, “Maiden Voyage” and “Sailing the South Pacific,” are available on Amazon and locallyat Seabreeze Books, Traveler’s Depot and Upstart Crow Bookstore and Coffee House.
Earlier this month, Hofmann spoke at the Pacific Beach/Tay-lor Branch Library. She continues her spring author tour with a presentation and book signing at Upstart Crow Bookstore and Coffee House in Seaport Village on Thursday, May 2 at 7 p.m., and at the Point Loma West Marine store at 1250 Rosecrans St. on Friday, May 10 from 2 to 4 p.m. Hofmann’s presentation, “Come Away with us to the Islands,” is a South Pacific-themed multimedia presentation that contains dancing, lifestyle on board a cruising catamaran, and beautiful slides of the South Pacific.
Hofmann recently released her second book, “Sailing the South Pacific,” the captivating follow-up to the award-winning “Maiden Voyage,” recipient of a 2011 San Diego Book Award. The books portray Hoffmann’s eight-year, 62-country sailing circumnavigation that Hoffmann and her husband undertook after turning 60 years old.
