If you think your forties were challenging—wait until you’re fifty. Just don’t wait until you’re fifty to read this book. It’s easier to handle this momentous change of life if you’re armed with good information, a sense of humor and, perhaps, a stiff drink. Fifty doesn’t happen overnight—the journey into midlife takes years and it’s different for everybody, female and male. Some start earlier, some start later, but in the end, it’s all the same: By the time you’re fifty adjustments are called for. This book is about helping women (and men, to some extent) navigate the changes that midlife brings. It gives credence, validity and voice to real concerns about entering middle age and practical advice on preserving and/or improving minds, bodies, desirability, confidence and creativity going forward. The book covers a broad range of topics from the perspective of midlife veterans, members of a silent majority of women that have a lot more to talk about than hot flashes and other physical manifestations of middle age. It is characterized by straightforward, conversational language, humorous anecdotes, helpful suggestions and an unwavering focus on reality, no matter how controversial or unorthodox. Women are hungry to hear about other women’s experiences in this area—and men are anxious to learn how to relate to the changing women in their lives as they are going through their own changes. They are all looking for relief—comic and otherwise. “Wait Until You’re Fifty” focuses less on menopause and more on the perspective changes, little murders and unexpected awakenings that midlife precipitates, such as: the permanently empty nest (farewell to fertility), midlife love (a whole other affair), and re-prioritizing friendship (who will be there for the back fifty?). MINDY LITTMAN HOLLAND wrote this book based on personal experience and interviews with dozens of women and men who had something to say about the joys and adversities of midlife. In addition to writing non-fiction, she writes long and short fiction. She lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Horn and Miller explore the full spectrum of mature women's health issues in a candid, conversational manner that integrates the body, mind, and spirit.

Horn and Miller have superb training and years of practical experience caring for women patients. It shows on every page of this excellent book. -Judge Glenda Hatchett, star of the nationally syndicated television program Judge Hatchett The authors' approach is accessible and entertaining. These are the doctor girlfriends you want to call because they know everything about the area of your concern-not only from their medical practices, but also from their own personal experiences. -Robin Wolaner, founder of Parenting magazine and founder and CEO of TeeBeeDee (tbd.com), an online network for people over forty This is the girlfriends' guide to taking charge of your health.

Midlife Mavericks chronicles a new trend--unmarried American and Canadian women building better lives for themselves in Mexico's beautiful colonial villages. Cozy up on a comfortable couch and share a margarita with successful women who have found an alternative to high-stress careers. Sip a glass of wine with empty-nesters seeking adventure and drink a glass of ice tea with retirees living in comfort on just their Social Security or disability income. You'll laugh and cry with these gutsy gringas as they journey from unfulfilled yearnings towards answers each woman must ultimately discover for herself. "Like the seafaring sirens, Midlife Mavericks, will lure reticent readers from their lukewarm existences into lives of discovery and purpose."

What if we gave birth to future and past generations at the same time? Gershon Polokov feels a deep attachment to his great granddaughter, Sophie. He believes her to be the reincarnation of his deceased wife, Sophie’s great grandmother. Before he dies, Gershon tells newborn Sophie the story of their past life together and the new life that is to come. Then, in his final hours, Gershon has stronger visions of the future than of the past, while Sophie’s memories intensify as she matures. Are the two destined to reunite as husband and wife, as they have been joined in every incarnation? Is there a mutual drive to find each other in every life and, together, discover the keeper of their souls? In this novel of recognition and continuity, the lives of two families, spanning several decades, are connected through generations of reincarnated souls, some with memories of their former lives and others without. MINDY LITTMAN HOLLAND, a nonfiction and fiction writer, is also an artist and photographer. Her previous book, WAIT UNTIL YOU’RE FIFTY: A WOMAN’S JOURNEY INTO MIDLIFE, was also published by Sunstone press. Mindy lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Visit the author: www.mindylittmanholland.com.

As the end of 2017 approached, it was clear that the world needed a chuckle. So, as I began to work on this book of short stories, it made sense to sift through my now-sizable collection, which I started writing in 2012, and select thirty of my funniest ones. The stories in this book are about life and death and all the strange and wonderful stuff that goes on in-between. Some are memoirs, some are about current events and some are just plain quirky. They all have one thing in common: They will make you laugh.
