Join the Clinton & Madison Chambers of Commerce


Dodie's decision to take a cruise to celebrate her 50th birthday changed her life completely.  After much encouragement from her friends, she wrote a book about what happened on that cruise - the truth is stranger than fiction - and she uses the book to raise money for charities.  She has since started a company called To Give Is Divine whose mission is to create products and events which give back.  Because of all the networking she has done, to date over $150,000 has been donated to the charities she supports.  


While Dodie's book offers advice about romantic relationships, she applies the lessons she learns to other relationships as well.  If you are in any kind of relationship or thinking about starting a new one, you can benefit from what Dodie will share with us.  She is being joined by Sal Chiaramonte who will be offering cruise advice and special cruise packages to attendees.


Penelope's Cruise is inspired by this true event with the added bonus of dating advice and relationship tips woven into the story. Gina, the main character, goes on date after date, which keeps turning into disaster. She comes up with a three-part plan, including THE LIST, to find her perfect partner. She implements the plan and then goes on a cruise to celebrate her 50th birthday. On the very first day of the cruise, she meets 37 year old Greg, and they plunge into a steamy shipboard romance which actually continues after the cruise ends. Then, Gina makes a startling discovery about Greg, and then has to navigate her way through choppy seas to arrive at her happily ever after. 


If you are in a relationship already or want to start one, you'll want to talk to Dodie about THE LIST! One of Dodie's readers wrote, "THE LIST! THE LIST! IT WORKED! I used it and am now in a relationship with this amazing man!"


This novel has some insights about building relationships as well as the story of the romance. AND 90% of the net profits of each book is donated to CHARITY!
