VEERING OFF: MY SEARCH FOR FREEDOM by Kevin Cromley (Nicaragua)


From the sticks of Mississippi to the jungles of Nicaragua, Kevin Cromley escaped the chaos of a turbulent youth,  and finally reached a point in his life where order prevailed. The order he so desperately desired. He would soon be scaling the corporate ladder and setting off on a methodical life of routine and comfort. Why then did he have a sinking feeling that something was off, as if his life was skewed and out of balance?

On a mission for answers, he chucks caution to the wind and joined the Peace Corps, finding himself thrust back into the throes of chaos yet again. Will the disorder and chaos overtake him, steer him back towards the perilous ways of his youth? Or will he learn to operate within the disarray and confusion of a new language, new culture, and a new way of looking at life? More importantly, will he even make it through the 3 months of training living with an indigenous family in Monimbo, Nicaragua, let alone the two years of Peace Corps service that follows?

Today Kevin lives in San Diego. He is a business owner, first-time writer, and full-time dad.
