Fashion designer Lorraine Parish has added author to her list of accomplishments, with the publication of her new book, Miles to San Miguel.

For over 40 years, Ms. Parish ran a boutique in Vineyard Haven, specializing in all things fashion. But at the age of 69 she decided to change her life, moving from the Vineyard to the Mexican town of San Miquel de Allende.

Her new book chronicles the move and her many adventures, driving to Mexico with her poodle Pearl and her fashion mannequin Agatha.

Miles to San Miguel is available at Bunch of Grapes and Edgartown bookstores — and was recently number one on Amazon’s travel with pets category.
