Front Cover, Draft 13On Saturday May 18, 2013, my latest book, AMAZING MENTORS: The REAL Hot Mama’s Path to Power, was birthed at Spa Lamar in Scottsdale, Arizona.

It was a very special moment and one I’d been looking forward to for a very long time. I adore Spa Lamar, my Arizona home away from home. Deep appreciation goes to lovely Heidi Lamar, Jeannie and all the great healers there.

It was also my first time seeing the book in print – the first viewing of my literary baby.  “Miraculous. Gorgeous. Isn’t she beautiful?” It was a true team effort, and I want to thank all of my contributors, 20 REAL Hot Mamas, who share so much of themselves with the world!

Also, my  special gratitude to Nikos, Victoria, and Ron, of Inkwell Productions, for their patience with my process.

Amazing Mentors is my eighth book, one I wrote to inspire all women. In it, I share empowering stories of women whom have inspired me.

There were rows of people, mostly women, but also a few brave men – many dear fans of one of my Mamas and the author of her own book, The World Needs Old Ladies: They Are The Tree of Life, also birthing that day at Spa Lamar.

It was my honor to introduce this amazing mentor ‘Dr. G’ who is 92 years active. She has shown us all what grace, power, and wisdom can look like.

Our dream is that women will pass the torch forward, sideways, and behind.

So every struggling young woman read this book to learn inner courage.

So every mid-life woman read this book, to reclaim her special beauty.

So all aging women see their value and step into the role of mentor.

And may we all claim our full power and help to heal our world.

Thanks to Fredda Simon, my sister Terri, and my lovely Arizona neighbor, Mary Jo, for their smiling faces in the crowded audience. It was a joy to have you share the day with us!
