Island author Ann Ehringhaus will share her experiences and answer questions on writing and publishing a book at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Ocracoke Preservation Society Museum,  49 Water Plant Rd.

In the last four years, Ehringhaus has completed two book projects.

“If people have a fantasy of writing a book and how to self-publish I can tell them how I did it,”she said about the impetus for the talk. “I can talk from my own experience and they can ask questions.”

Her most recent book, “Send Me the Wind,” (Big Ocean Press, 2016) is a collaboration with Cape Cod poet Ed Wanamaker in which her photography is paired with Wanamaker’s poems.  

Ehringhaus’s other books are “Ten Thousand Breakfasts : A Tale of Wonder” (Big Ocean Press, 2013) that recounts life at Oscar’s House Bed and Breakfast, which she has run for more than 30 years, and “Ocracoke Portrait” (John F Blair, 1988), which is a photo essay that captures images and stories of the island’s history and culture.
