She is the author of two books, both released by Widowspeak Publishing in 2020. Her memoir “How I Made a Huge Mess of My Life (or Couples Therapy with a Dead Man)” debuted in March 2020 to tell the story of her midlife passage from her 40s to her 60s when everything changed. Her anthology of 50+ blog posts “I Could Be Wrong” is a delightful selection of three-minute reads, big laughs, wit and wisdom, including illustrations by Brenda Rose.
