Readers Favorite 5 STARS - the potential to transform the way most women see themselves today

While this book is written for women, I found it very enlightening as
a man. . . packed with wit, wisdom, and insight, and it is one of
those books that will, undoubtedly, inspire women today to look
past the conventions and traditional beliefs that limit them to
embrace who they really are, to determine what they can become.

In the author's own words, this story is: "...naked, raw, and
trusting."The author shares her vulnerabilities, her mistakes, and
insecurities,and in so doing, she connects with readers and infuses
the writing with an authenticity that is eloquent. The voice is very
strong and confident. The prose is beautiful. But the message in the
book has the potential to transform the way most women see
themselves today.It is a must-read for every woman.

Review Christian Sia

Readers' Favorite 5 STARS - sure to
bean essential bedside book for thoughtful women who want to
take control of their new lives.

Produced as a 'Womanual' that provides guidance on life and adjustments, the work is aimed at Baby Boomer and Generation X women who are now entering a new phase of their lives where they may feel displaced from the modern world and unsure of their role as older women. 
Where the concept of a woman's 'sell-by date' rears its ugly head, this compassionate
and empowering guidebook focuses on topics such as self-love, genuine relationships and focusing on what you, as a woman, really want from your life regardless of societal expectations.

Review by K.C. Finn

Readers' Favorite 5 STARS - the voice of every woman who wanted to move forward,
do something, but was held back because of societal

The language of this exceptional book is actually very simple yet so emotionally powerful. 

I felt a connection with the author the moment I started reading. 
Her reason behind starting this gem was phenomenal and I commend her on how she brought all of these stories together. The flow is incredible; she makes sure that the stories and narratives have followed a certain theme. 

I think this is one of those rare books that I would actually keep by my bedside and read a couple of pages before starting my day because it is so empowering.

From the Author

The Quest
I set out on a quest to celebrate my 65thbirthday by publishing a book.

In the beginning, I planned to write the story of mypersonal journey and discoveries as I searched for the answers to "Who Am I Now?".Primarily, I intended it to be a cathartic autobiography.

As I discussed the outline of the book with some trustedfriends, I started to realize that my quest could become a mission, perhapseven a movement.

When I talked about my own desire to have a community, a safeand inclusive tribe of wise women who I could share with, and learn from, handsshot up in the air and I heard a resounding "Me Too" from the women I spoke to.

I learned I was not alone in my search for relatableknowledge to help me navigate this ever-changing life as a woman of my age inthis age. I was surprised to find out that so many women were looking foranswers too.

And then, women did what we do best, we spread the word andthe movement was underway! 

There was no turning back for me now. No excuses toprocrastinate or quit.

During the past ten years, I've felt like Alice inWonderland, down the rabbit hole, growing, then shrinking, not quite fittingin, experiencing unexpected and unpleasant effects of feeling like a strangerin the land of "I've never been this 'me' before."

Without a script to follow, how should I prepare, adapt orenjoy being this age in these times. There's a lot of (mis)information outthere, mostly from entities trying to sell us something. But truly, the most usefuladvice and information I received came from women, like me, who have experiencedthe physical, emotional and relationship impacts that happen during periods of transformation.

In the past decade, I have changed my business card, placeof residence, hair style, dress size and much more; some things more than once.I've changed my last name, added to the places in the world I visited andsignificantly increased my knowledge of the betrayals of the aging female body.

Each time I thought I was successfully navigating my waythrough 'Womanhood Wonderland," something else derailed me and put me onanother track of change, challenge and growth.

I have learned I am not alone on this magical mystery tour.This is a quest for knowledge, confidence and joy. I began this work as a safespace to share revelations, perspectives, and tacit knowledge. It became a venuefor the voices of women like you, me and all the Alices who are redefining ageand feminine constructs.

I invited my tribe to share the uncensored, unsanitized,irreverent, funny/not-so-funny, mad-bad-sad truth about our bodies,relationships, careers, finances, and how we're figuring out, one chin hair ata time, how to thrive in the multiple 'encore' times of our lives!"

My vision for this community is inspired by our ancestralsisters who shared wisdom, skills and truth around the fire or sewing circles.Within the sanctity of their group, they learned and supported each other. Thiswas how knowledge was transferred between generations. The knowledge was vettedby the experience the women lived. They knew how to stay safe, keep the firesburning and find the juiciest berries. They understood that survival of thetribe depended on sharing this knowledge forward.

Today, with our society so mobile and so busy, there are fewopportunities to sit by the warmth of sisterhood and absorb the wisdom of ourtribe.

My quest is to curate a tribal narration of what reallyhappens as we age, how to harness it, and how to laugh at and love yourselfmore than you ever have!

Unlike Alice's, our story never ends. It begins again andagain as we transform and evolve into the women that we are meant to be.

I offer this book to share the stories, experiences andcollective wisdom of women like me and like you, approaching 50 or alreadyliving a real life in our 50s and 60s and beyond.
My passion project is to curate the truth of some of what'shappening now, coming, and possible about our bodies, relationships, careers,finances, and how we're evolving as amazing women in the encore times of ourlives.

There is so much that we have not encountered yet, don'tknow will happen, have been misled about and too often feel completely alonein.

We are individuals but we do not have to be alone.
Join me and let's start the conversations.
Catalyst,Curator, Crusader
