About the Author

Cindy Eastman's work is informed by her ability to be an observer as well as a participant in her life.; With her dry sense of humor, she is able to address a variety of topical subjects and deliver an insightful analysis that's both provocative and amusing. Currently she coordinates a supervised visitation service with her husband in his counseling practice and facilitates diversity and anti-bullying trainings for the Anti-Defamation League. She also teaches a writing course for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the Waterbury campus of UConn. Eastman makes her home in Connecticut with her husband, Angelo, and their cat. She is working on a second book when not babysitting her grandson.


"Cindy Eastman's Flip-Flops After 50 is as funny, warm, and inviting as its title. Filled with the kind of everyday humor that made Erma Bombeck everybody's favorite columnist, Eastman's wit and generosity reach out to embrace the reader. With every laugh, there's a moment of recognition and a sense of camaraderie."
--Dr. Gina Barreca, professor of English and feminist theory and author of It's Not That I'm Bitter, or How I Stopped Worrying About Visible Panty Lines and Conquered the World

"Cindy Eastman's honest, straight-talking wisdom evokes Margaret Young, who said, 'You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.' Heartwarming, humorous, and often inspirational, these essays will touch the spirit of every woman fortunate enough to turn fifty."
--Jan Coffey, award-winning, best-selling author of Silent Waters

"With great insight, and a healthy dose of self-deprecating wit, Cindy Eastman's prose sparkles. Reading her essays is like sharing coffee (or perhaps a Skinny Vanilla Latte) and great conversation with a friend, one who doesn't pretend to have all the answers but rather finds joy in exploring life's quirks and questions. Whether discussing fitness or parenting, love or loss, her words-- equally rich in skill and sincerity--are moving and true. Flip-Flops After 50 delights."
--Steven Parlato, author of The Namesake
