“I want women to embrace aging rather than fear it, and, if they wish, to find a great relationship again. Above all, I want to boost their self esteem and show them how to enjoy this fascinating part of their lives to the fullest.”

I AM a relationships expert, writer, author, speaker and media personality. I am also a pioneer in the field of helping mid and late-life women explore relationships and sexuality.

In 2001, my book Cougar launched the concept into a skeptical world that single women over 40 are sensual, sexual, desirable, valuable to society and, especially, attractive to younger men. The word, as applied to such exciting women, became internationally recognized and entered the English language.

With my latest book THE LATER DATER, I continue my objective by spotlighting a generally disregarded and ignored pathway for single women over 50, showing them how to find and enjoy another relationship, whether same age, older or younger, by understanding the modern dating scenario.
