After 18 months of following one-size-fits-all advice for a 57-year-old widow, Linda Crill was still miserable. In a moment of rebellion, she traded her corporate suits for motorcycle leathers and committed herself to a 2,500-mile road trip down America’s Pacific Northwest coast riding a motorcycle. The problem—she did not know how to ride and had only 30 days to learn.

From Vancouver, Canada, to the wine country of California, this out-of-character choice became a catalyst for discovering answers to “What Now?” By heading into the unknown—the blind curve—she faced her fears, tested old beliefs, and discovered not only a broader horizon of possibilities to use in building the next phase of her life but also the fuel to make it happen.

Funny, irreverent, and extraordinarily honest, it is the perfect read for people looking for ways to reinvent themselves, and anyone asking: “What now?”


Linda Crill is a sought-after executive, consultant, and speaker who has worked with Citigroup, Cadbury-Mott’s, Goldman Sachs, and Marriott International Inc., as well as many other Fortune 100 companies, universities, non-profits, and government departments and agencies. Crill lectures and writes on how to manage change and reinvent yourself, your life, and your business.

She is the mother of three grown women who whole-heartedly support her non-traditional path to rediscovering zest for life.

Crill lives in the Washington, DC, area, and travels regularly to Philadelphia, New York, Toronto, and San Diego.
