See you around the neighborhood

The View (U.S. TV series)

I’ve learned a great deal at my time here on True/Slant – mostly that blogging is damn hard work and you’ve got to be passionate about your subject or it’s not worth it for either the reader or the writer. That said, I will continue to write about the topics I am most passionate about – living well after 40, sex, relationships, parenting, and promoting a healthy self-image for women of all ages – all served up with a dash of humor and pinch of spice.

You can find me at my blog Forty Fabulous (www.fortyfabulous.blogspot.com) and at Makeitbetter.net where, among other things, I write the monthly “Sex and the Suburbs” column. If you’re interested, follow these links to my recent pieces on Staying Sexy at Every Age and how to deal with a Sexless Marriage. And feel free to follow me on twitter.

I still have high hopes for becoming the next Oprah, even though my audition video only gained a handful of votes. Perhaps I’m better suited to  The View.

Thanks to everyone at True/Slant for allowing me to be part of such a wonderful group of writers. It has been an honor. Good luck to all.

    Don’t forget that if you become the next Oprah, I get to be the next Gayle. (I voted for you!)
    See ya around the ‘burbs, pal.

    Heavens, you’re busy. Two (2) other blogs! When would have time to be the next Oprah? I’m subscribing to your RSS feeds. Let’s keep in touch.

    (And if you and Hilary ever take a really wrong turn and find yourselves lost on the South Side, you know who to call.)

    About Me

    I'm a 40-something mother, wife and writer who took a long unexpected gig as a stay-at-home mom in the Chicago suburbs which, to my surprise, I liked. In addition to spending quality time with my two kids, staying home gave me time to hang out on the North Shore, act in community theatre, sing in a band, host a local-access cable TV show and go back to school. Now I'm relaunching my career as a writer. I have another blog about life after 40, and am a regular contributor to local magazines and newspapers. I look forward to bringing stories from my neighborhood to yours.

    What I'm Up To

    Divorced & Dating

    I’m doing a series on dating after divorce for my blog about life after 40 called Forty Fabulous. Whether you’re single for the second time or happily married, it will make you rethink your relationship (and there’s some good dirt too.)
