What's your first reaction after learning that a tornado, flood, wild fire or hurricane is headed straight for your town? Unless you just need to socialize, if your response is to leave your house to buy anything--food, water, batteries, wood to board up your windows, flashlight, etc.--then you aren't prepared. In 2008, two corporate America professionals left their well-paying jobs to live a much simpler life. Knowing nothing about agriculture, they bought an organic farm in the interior of the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico. They told themselves they were prepared for anything. Within three days of moving to their new farm, the water utility shut off their water so they could fix a sizable leak down the hill from their farm. The water remained off for three weeks. That day this couple learned some valuable lessons about the importance of truly being prepared for anything. From creating lists and forging bonds to planning weeks, months and even years out, preparedness for a natural disaster is far more than stocking up on items you think you'll need if you're going to be shut in for several days or even weeks. It's a mindset. Sarah's Tips on Preparedness: Minimizing the Impact of a Natural Disaster is a guide for anyone who has to deal with Mother Nature. Sarah's Tips isn't meant to be a definitive guide. With many books on preparedness out there--most of them dense with information, eclipsing 150 pages--it's impossible to cover every scenario you're likely to encounter in 50 pages. However, Sarah's tips will prepare you in ways you probably never imagined. And with 100% of the proceeds benefiting two non-profit organizations on Puerto Rico, it's a win win for everyone!

Author Biography

Following over two decades in corporate America culminating with biotech giant, Amgen, in 2008 Sarah and her husband gave up the all-consuming, consuming all lifestyle to buy an organic farm in Puerto Rico and begin writing. In 2015 Sarah co-authored Being Biracial: Where Our Secret Worlds Collide, an anthology of essays exploring mixed-race identity that has attracted 50+ 5-star reviews on Amazon. Today she likes to refer to herself as a corporate America escapee turned eco-organic farmer, writer and activist. Always passionate about design and travel, Goodness is a Nigerian-born graphic designer who's always planning her next adventure. She speaks multiple languages and is a little obsessive about her to-do lists. Okay, maybe very obsessive. She's also the creative director of GOKOROART, a design studio that specializes in print and infographic design. When not working from home in the cyber-world of freelance, Deb enjoys day-hiking in and around Flagstaff, AZ, and the Grand Canyon, long-distance backpacking on trails both near and far, including a six-month thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, and volunteering with the busy Coconino County Sheriff's Search and Rescue team. Under the name Debra Lauman, she has authored two novels, I. Joseph Kellerman55 and A Picket Fence in Pawpaw56. Deb and her husband are currently working on plans to build an off-the-grid, sustainable home on land in the pi on/juniper "big sky" country outside of Flagstaff.
