Sometimes a chance meeting isn’t by accident.  It’s the opportunity to meet a kindred spirit along life’s journey. That’s what happened to me last September at the conclusion of an industry conference that was held on the grounds of a large Massachusetts fairgrounds. 

Our conference registration included admissions into the Eastern States Exhibition, one of the largest “tri-state” fairs in the country. I walked around in amazement since I had never attended this event in the 30 years living in the state. Curiosity led me to the exhibit hosted by several self published authors who had formed an association.

Its founder was Gerry Garner, a spry 87 year old retired teacher who still had much to accomplish in life. I joined the association on the spot and opened my world to the wonders of Western Massachusetts.

I am  honored today to have Gerry and Albert Garner on today’s show. They were sweethearts in their youth, and this week celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary! Gerry is the founder of Authors Selling Books, an association for self published authors based in Springfield, Massachusetts.  She has authored a wonderful anthology, Generations Build The Future.  Her husband, Albert’s is completing his first book that is due out soon!

You’re never too old to start a new chapter in your life....or your book.

This show will inspire those ready to reinvent themselves for the holidays and into the New Year.
