About the Author

Stephen Hemmert was born and raised in Tulsa Oklahoma. He attended the University of Tulsa and received a B.S. degree in writing for radio and television. In 1980 he moved to the Los Angeles area to pursue a career in music. There he met the woman that would become his wife and the mother of his two children. After leaving the music business, he spent nine years as Vice-President of recruiting and human resources for a marketing company in Hollywood. Upon the sale of the company, Stephen followed his passion and opened a coffee house and bistro in Studio City CA called "Sonoma Blue." That venture lead him back in his love for music and performance. Sadly, the business was forced to close, due to the sale of the building, and his ensuing divorce from his wife of sixteen years. He accepted a job as a marketing rep for a large food distribution company while he reconstructed his shattered life. Forced back into the dating world, he decided to keep memoirs of his newfound freedom and experiences and this is where his book "Dating and the 50-Year-Old Man" was born. He has also written three screenplays and a television pilot. Stephen lives in the rural area of Agua Dulce California where he has a vineyard and makes his own wine, continues to play and write music and waits for the love of his life.

I got the book in the mail on Friday and finished it on Monday. I have never finished a book that fast. I have never dated, being married since High School and I was really shocked at how the world works. I wish the book was longer. What a great writer. I felt guilty at times like I was reading someone's diary. I got so lost in the story and I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to be entertained and enlightened. Thank you for sharing this story. WOW :)

I could not put this book down, which made for a late night and lack of sleep, but had to finish it.
Finding that one true love is so complicated and difficult, but the author takes you on a journey that has you laughing
as you read, but sad also at times as he writes about his quest for true love.

His honesty comes through as he's telling you the stories of each woman in his life, from
his divorce from the one he thought was forever to the ones that he thinks might be his future and
for anyone who's dated, and who hasn't, it will remind you of your own dating adventures.
A search for a soul-mate, for a true love, something we all know too well.

Then at the end.....he leaves you wanting to know more....will he find the love of his life?
There must be another book to follow this one...as I want the answer and those who read this
will too.

I absolutely love this book! This book gave you a little of everything from sadness, to compassion. It was wild and wacky, yet romantically hopeful. The author seemed to have a genuine quest for real love, something that can be very difficult to find in today’s dating scene.
