With wit and humor, she delivers a message that inspires women to make themselves a priority in their own lives and grab their fair share of joy as they meet life’s challenges head-on.

A  former newspaper columnist , Mary Fran realized that she’d have to do some reinventing in her writing life; that’s when she created Not Ready For Granny Panties—starting with a blog, then a book and finally a lifestyle.

The reinvention taught Mary Fran that not only could an “old dog” learn new and interesting tricks, but there was fun to be had in the process—a message she shares with women eager to learn how to remain relevant and embrace life in a rapidly changing world.

 Mary Fran’s second book, Not Ready For Granny Panties—The 11 Commandments for Avoiding Granny Panties, offers readers a new “bible” to help women reclaim their lives, their vitality and their fun. readers embark on a hilarious ride that also provides sound advice for living life in the middle years to the fullest.

Mary Fran’s first book, Everyday Adventures or, As My Husband Says, “Lies, Lies and More Lies,” was published in 2007. Her work has received notable mention by the Erma Bombeck Writer’s Workshop and Humor Press, among others. She speaks frequently at women's events and writer's seminars and currently writes for her blog, (www.notreadyforgrannypanties.com). Both books are available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.com.
