If someone had told me 10 years ago that I'd become a published author with four books to my credit, I'd have told them they were crazy!


Background Information

In 1998 I gave my first presentation on the need to plan for the unexpected. After that presentation, someone told me that I should write a book - that not only did I have so much information to share, but that I would have product to sell at the "back of the room." This was definitely a new concept to me, because, although I had spent many years in the marketing and advertising field, I was at that time selling life insurance (or attempting to).

Drawing on encouragement from friends and associates, I put my lecture notes into book form which became my first book, Planning for Tomorrow-Your Passport to a Confident Future. I hired a publishing coach, learned all about the publishing industry, decided to self-publish, and the first book was released.

At the same time, I was a working caregiver to my elderly mother who shared my home. Having incorporated elder care and working caregivers' concerns into my workshops, and one chapter in my first book, I took the next step. One year after my first book was released, I released a book for family caregivers, A Caregiver's Journey-You Are Not Alone.

During my Mother's last few years in this life, she had presented me with (what I consider to be the ultimate gift) - her life story. Yes, she wrote her story for me which I diligently typed every evening and asked hundreds of questions to gain as much information as possible about the life of this fascinating lady. As she entered the final stages of her life, I put this project on hold. After she left this world, I revived the manuscript and on the one-year anniversary of her passing, I released Fran's Story-The 90 Year Journey of a Kansas Farm Girl.

In my first book, I had included a chapter on understanding the generations and how they interacted with one another. This chapter brought a lot of comments and feedback and it was suggested that I take this chapter to the next step. In year 4 of my writing career, I released Every Generation Needs a New Revolution. That book has been my most successful to date. To the point that I have created three "workshops in a box" on the subject and will soon release "The Good, The Bad, and The Crazy in Today's Multigenerational World," - a pay-per-view Internet workshop.

Today, I write articles, a bi-weekly newsletter, facilitate workshops, and stay very busy giving presentations and lectures. I love my life! Being an author affords me the independence I've always wanted and let's me pursue my passion at the same time.
