Ken Medernach

Children’s Favorite Adventure Author.




     Ken has been there, done that, and Writes About it. Ken Medernach shares some short stories based on his true life experiences on the water. The stories are not only entertaining for young and old alike; they are also inspiring and educational. As the pages turn, you can sense that Ken speaks from experience. When he writes about the South Georgia heat, you can feel the sweat running down your cheeks and the mosquitoes swarming about your face. When he writes about resurfacing a wooden boat, you can almost smell the paint and varnish and feel the sawdust tickle your nose. Ken didn't have to join the Boy Scouts to gain a deep appreciation for their motto, "be prepared," in some cases he learned the hard way. "On the High Seas" is a great book with good values that belongs in your library.  


     Sailing is one of those sports that gets into people's blood. If you have ever spent an extended period of time on the ocean, you most likely have dreamed of owning your own boat and hitting the high seas. Sailing provides physical, mental, and spiritual nourishment for those who enjoy this sport. Today, however, it is becoming harder and harder to get the next generation to appreciate this fulfilling sport. Young kids just don't understand how something so simple in appearance - cruising over the top of the water at a good clip - can provide so much. Well, the new book by T.K. "Ken" Medernach aims at showing young people just how amazing the sailing life can be.


     The first story was very intriguing and kept my interest from the start. T.K. "Ken" Medernach's writing is very good and his explanations show his love, understanding and knowledge of boating.  His technical knowledge is shown in his pictures, knowledge and the glossary he has provided.  He also has a knack for putting a good moral into the stories.  Sail along with him and discover as he did, the wonders of the waterways which surrounded him as a youth in Georgia.
