i-Mary – Boomer on the Web




Hi Dreamers and Lovers,

I'm all-comfy in the Much Cheaper Than Therapy blog-room, ready for my session. Reveal: I've been writing lo these many years, currently 14 books online and a few still on bookshelves, including 2 nonfiction. My main focus, besides learning to play golf so my husband doesn't have ALL the fun and traveling to FABulous places, are my eBooks. I guess that's more than one focus. I must admit that writing is great therapy and a way to channel those voices I hear when my characters take over. Ahhh, I feel better already.

To be a Boomer on the Web means transformation from Mild Mannered Wife and Mother Writing Romance Novels to World-wide Domination… uh, oh no. I mean that it has shown me the vast, beautiful world and given the world a path to my books! How exciting is that? Admittedly, it has taken a tremendous amount of determination while tackling a huge thinking/learning curve. I'm not slick at it, but I have lots of helpers and assistants – that's what I raised those brilliant children for, right? I'm all for meeting those challenges, trying something different, and going for the gusto. The rewards will be surprising beyond your imagination!

I'll be sharing some things I've learned over the years like:
  • Boomer on the Web – frustration or freedom?
  • The Power of Three!!!
  • Delights, Discoveries, and Dreams (& Determination)
  • The F-Words That Make IT Happen – (not what you think!)
  • and oh yeah, Writing Naked (the bold & the beautiful!)

In our fast-paced life today, we're all overwhelmed with To-Do lists – and a mad scramble to get it all done. I suggest a little summer escape, or fictional fantasy, to spark our lives. In A MAN TO REMEMBER, you can travel safely to the beautiful beaches of Mexico for a beach read. Alyse has a fling with a mysterious man. Can she believe him? Should she risk her life for him? Would you? Let me know what you would do. Here's my link to buy-


Thanks for sharing this session, which was Much Cheaper (and way more fun) Than Therapy. I hope it was good for you, too. See you next time, 3rd Tuesday from the sun.
Voilà (practicing for my journey to France this fall).

Hello my beautiful author cousin. Being a boomer does have it's challenges, and seems you have tackled it head on. We either move with the times or we become invisible. It is never to late to follow our dreams; May have to adjust them slightly! But, that is what we call embracing change with as smile. Keep the ink flowing!

M.T.
You are having far too much fun this summer. But I'm glad to see you are writing up a storm. Will miss you at Saturday's meeting, though. Roz

Welcome to Therapy, Mary. You make it look easy. And see all the company you've got calling. So glad you came aboard.

Great read and interesting topic. How does this blog get to eBook readership? And, I agree. Reading and writing is much cheaper than therapy.

I'll join you in the therapy room, Mary! Being a Boomer has challenges but also so many rewards. Congratulations and keep on blogging!

I love this, Johnnie! Embracing change is what it's all about... difficult as that may be for some of us. That's where the satisfaction in life lies.

Thanks Veronica, I'm trying to stay in motion - aren't we all! And I'm all for keeping it FUN! (that's one of my f-words!) And I hope to inspire all who read this.

Mary Tate Engels said...

Yes, Janie! We are there! If they'd just listen to our roar!

Mary Tate Engels said...

Yay Rita, keep reading... and writing! And save some of that precious energy for more FUN together!

Mary Tate Engels said...

Hi Roz, I've missed the energy of the meetings, too. But I've been writing up a storm - hopefully the next book will produce itself.

Mary Tate Engels said...

Hey Connie - thanks for inviting me! What fun we can have - & maybe shed a little light to dark places.

Mary Tate Engels said...

Hey Anonymous, I hope you and everyone who enjoys reading our books will spread the word. And join our FUN therapy!
