My nonfiction, self-help book, Caring for Someone You Love, deals with helping my father during the last year of his life. Healthy and active all his life, Dad suddenly took a fall at age 80 that resulted in a downward spiral that rendered this fiercely independent man suddenly dependent. Caring for Someone You Love, is the story of how this affected both of us. It is a story of love and adjustment and lessons learned, a personal story with broad implications at a time when our older population is larger than ever before in history. With more than 40 million Americans 65 and older, countless sons and daughters will one day find themselves in my position. My father's end of life was an inspiration to me. It is my hope this book will be an inspiration to others. I am also the author of an earlier book, Kindness on a Budget, which illustrates the gifts of being kind daily, both for the giver and the receiver alike. I am an experienced promoter, having discussed Kindness on a Budget on numerous radio shows and as a featured guest speaker before various organizations. Suzie’s first book, “Kindness on a Budget,” illustrates the outsized impact of subtle, daily generosities of spirit. Suzanne lives in southern California, where she enjoys, hiking, Yoga, and gardening.
