My Children are My Legacy

Shifting to the Business of Life

You could say that all the books I’ve written are either because of my children, or in honor of them:

  • My first effort, “You Can’t Love Your Children Too Much,” expresses my thoughts and passion around how I raised Jennifer and Alan as a single mom.
  • “Shifting to The Business of Life” came about as a result of many unbelievable conversations with my kids and their friends.
  • I hope that reading Alan’s very real “Letters from Boot Camp” will help other parents, as much as they helped me, to cope with a very scary, and life-changing, experience.
  • And be sure to order a copy of Next Steps if you ever decide to purchase a manufactured home: This book will save your sanity.
