About the Author

Stephanie Raffelock is a graduate of Naropa University's program in writing and poetics. She has penned articles for numerous publications, including The Aspen Times, Quilters Magazine, Care2.com, Nexus Magazine, Omaha Lifestyles, and The Rogue Valley Messenger. Currently she writes a monthly column for SixtyandMe.com. A recent transplant to Austin, Texas, she enjoys life with her husband, Dean, and their Labrador retriever, Jeter (yes, named after the great Yankee shortstop). Raffelock lives an active life that she fills with hiking, Pilates, and swimming in an attempt to offset the amount of time that she spends in her head thinking up stories and essays.

"Where are the elders? The wise women, the crones, the guardians of truth here to gently, lovingly, and playfully guide us towards the fulfillment of our collective destiny? It turns out that they are right here, in our midst, and Stephanie Raffelock is showcasing the reclamation of aging as a moment of becoming, no longer a dreaded withering into insignificance. A Delightful Little Book on Aging lays down new and beautiful tracks for the journey into our richest, deepest, and wildest years."
--Kelly Brogan, MD, author of the New York Times bestseller A Mind of Your Own

"This little book by Stephanie Raffelock unfolds gently. Like aging, it is raw and funny and quirky. It is not five easy steps but real stories and wisdom. It is resilience in action, acknowledging losses and unwanted changes of aging with moxie, humor, and grit."
--Frederic Luskin, PhD, cofounder of the Stanford Forgiveness Project and author of Forgive for Good and Forgive for Love

"Deeply compassionate, eminently readable, and filled with timeless wisdom and unbridled joy. Stephanie Raffelock will be your favorite new discovery. You're welcome."

Stephanie Raffelock makes me look forward to my own golden years. Well done!"
