About the Author

Gwendolyn Bounds is an award-winning journalist and author whose career spans influential media brands including The Wall Street Journal, ABC News, Consumer Reports, CNBC, SmartNews, and more. Her first book, Little Chapel on the River, earned wide acclaim for its poignant portrayal of life inside a small-town pub after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Raised in North Carolina, Bounds now lives in New York's Hudson River Valley.


"There's a lot of wisdom packed into Not Too Late, but it's also a fantastic page-turner of a story. Bounds's dreams and doubts and insecurities are highly relatable for anyone staring into the headlights of middle age, and the way she tackles them will get you out of your chair--and perhaps down in the mud, crawling under some barbed wire."--Alex Hutchinson, bestselling author of Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance

"In Not Too Late, Gwendolyn Bounds captures the powerful lure of discovering 'flow' in midlife as she embraces something bold and once unimaginable. Such a reset of who we believe we are, and what we are capable of doing, can help us move from the weight of the world (which is easy to store up) to the wonder of the world."--Chip Conley, bestselling author of Learning to Love Midlife.

"Wendy Bounds is an inspiration! In Not Too Late she proves that reinvention is possible at any age--and gives you the tools you need to triumph over your fears and embrace your next adventure. Bounds not only changed her own life; her irresistible story will change yours."--Joanne Lipman, bestselling author of Next!: The Power of Reinvention in Life and Work

"In a world plagued by isolation, alienation, and apathy, Not Too Late is an ode to the value of sport: a sense of belonging, intimacy, and mastery that's good for not just the body and mind but also the soul. Bounds inspires and shows how you can reap these rewards at any age."--Brad Stulberg, bestselling author of Master of Change and The Practice of Groundedness

"[Bounds'] journey to that self-discovery, to embracing the inner badass that rests within so many of us, even if we don't think it does, is something that anyone who has ever felt the pull of the couch and midlife malaise will want to dive into. This story of a grand pivot to something dangerous just might change your life."--Matthew Futterman, author of Running to the Edge

"No matter your age, Not Too Late will inspire you to make big positive changes--to do hard things you didn't think you could and conquer the extra mile (and mile after that). Importantly, it'll also arm you with the information you need to make those changes. Read Not Too Late and ride its inspiration and advice to a new you."--Michael Easter, bestselling author of The Comfort Crisis and Scarcity Brain.

"Honest, humble, and very funny, Not Too Late will inspire any mortal to push personal limits, whether it's on the playground monkey bars or in one of the planet's craziest endurance competitions. Gwendolyn Bounds has written an absorbing, age-defiant classic that embraces the hidden warrior inside all of us."--Jason Gay, bestselling author of I Wouldn't Do That If I Were Me and Little Victories

"There are piles of books on how to win in your career, but scarce few grapple with the ultimate quest for purpose, meaning, and inspiration as life's finish line approaches. Gwendolyn Bounds's Not Too Late is an intimate first-person story of pivoting in midlife to embrace challenge, persevere, and triumph."--R. Douglas Fields, PhD, author of Electric Brain and Why We Snap
