More About the Author

I'm aging and I'm fascinated by the process. I'm committed to aging consciously and to supporting other people in doing so as well. One way I do this is through writing, and I'm the author of eight books. I wrote three of them to help family caregivers find peace of mind. I am happy to say they are used in many caregiver support groups across the country.

Because of the helpful messages in my books, I have been invited to give hundreds of workshops and keynote talks across North America since 1991 on conscious aging, body wisdom, and family caregiving. I am grateful that I am able to provide compassion and inspiration to so many people.

My background includes working in the arts, social services, education, journalism, and ministry. I also have master's degrees in human development and creative writing. I have also known the pains and joys of caregiving.

This book was/is spot on for me--relevant and comforting to be able to identify with others who are either there or are walking thIs path. I'm already working The Twelve Step Program so I am especially grateful for her wisdom and insight. Self-Care for Caregivers: A Twelve Step Approach is a "must read" and caregiver's spiritual guide to healthy living.

It was my experience that the book focused on the caregiver's need for control. While most caregivers that I know do not act like or believe their role is control, nor is control what they want. I wanted to understand how I could help my spouse while also taking care of my emotional needs. The book did not provide that for me.
