More About the Author

I knew I had to write about "how we do old" after pitching a screenplay to a woman who ignored me like I was plastic fruit. That catalyst made me start to see everything a whole new way and helped me realize that we are treating anyone who's old enough to stop working as if they don't exist any more.

I retired at 47 to "write novels" (REALLY dumb idea) and am at the leading edge of the baby boom. I've learned early about the emptiness of all that leisure stuff you think will keep you happy and busy. I wrote Supercharged Retirement for you--because I don't want you to make all the mistakes I did. In writing it, I discovered an important thing for myself though--fun comes in many forms and doing something to help others is one of the best. Yes, it is a fun book.

I grew up in Wisconsin but live in the Pacific Northwest now--after Idaho, Oklahoma, New Hampshire, Nebraska, and Colorado. (It doesn't look like it but I really am a responsible adult!) I love to hike, bike, and garden and, of course, spend time whenever I can with my kids, grandkid, and sibs. And yes, I am still writing novels. Stay tuned on that.
