About the Author
"As much as I love words on the page, I'm not fully satisfied until I get to speak them in person with others," Leslie adds. She's honored to travel and share from her passions nationally and internationally at conferences, universities, churches, and retreats. With three master's degrees, she has taught collegiate classes for many years, including six years in Seattle Pacific University's MFA program. If she can't see her audience, radio is a good second. She has appeared on more than 150 radio shows including Family Life Today, Prime Time America, Focus on the Family, and Chris Fabry Live!
She conducts writing workshops around the country and is the founder of the Harvester Island Wilderness Workshop, a writing and spiritual retreat center on the Alaskan island where her family lives and fishes commercially. Recent guest writers have included Philip Yancey, Ann Voskamp, Luci Shaw, and Bret Lott. Find out more at www.leslieleylandfields.com.
Leslie lives on Kodiak Island, Alaska, with her family and her Yorkie, Sophie, who thinks she's a sled dog. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I'm a counselor and author who studies happiness so I know that most people get happier and happier with each decade, and they have their peak life experiences in their late 60s and early 70s. After that they start to decline only a little bit in regard to happiness (as friends die and health declines). However, most people never get anywhere near the unhappiness they experience in their 20s.
Isn't that great news?
The book's author Leslie Leyland Field's is a wonderful example of a woman living life to the full. She lives in Alaska and helps support her family by catching salmon. On the side she teaches, writes, and travels. Nestled alongside her adventures, you'll find stories from 40 other "over 40" Christian authors.
This book will encourage any woman who feels like her best years are behind her.
Buy a copy of this book for you, your mother, your sister-in-law, your grown daughter, and a friend.
They will thank you.
The women of "The Wonder Years" defy that myth with their deeply personal stories of reality and gravity, grace in loss, hard won wisdom, and strength. Stories that bring to mind a woman many know: "She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come." (Proverbs 31:25) The Wonder Years is a chorus of laughter, tears, resolve, and adventure. If you're in or even nearing these wonder years, this powerful book is both a travel guide and companion. Don't miss it!
Dad always said, "Don't live life as bystander sport!". If you are 40 or older, or not, this book will bless you, or some who is. Having attended a writer's workshop taught by Leslie Leyland Fields, I had the privilege of previewing it. These WONDERful writers will encourage you to live the second half of life with wonder - embracing all that God has for YOU!
