How to Age With Grace

Living Your Best Life in Your 70s, 80s, and Beyond

What if you had an owner’s manual to answer your questions about aging?

Now, you do.

The idea for the book was born when I found myself having to make several life-altering decisions at the same time—whether to sell my condo and stop living independently, decide where to live instead, give up my car, and close my book-coaching and editing business. I needed more information before I could make these decisions, so I started researching. I realized almost immediately that if I was grappling with these issues, no doubt other people my age were doing so as well. I focused my research on ten questions to which older adults need answers, ranging from how to develop the best attitude about aging to how to talk to my adult children about end-of-life issues.

How to Age with Grace: Living Your Best Life in Your 70s, 80s, and Beyond answers the ten most pressing questions older adults ask to help them live well now and prepare for the years ahead.

What does one do with snippets of news and facts that don’t seem to fit anywhere else—those that are interesting but defy categorization? Whether they are headlines or humorous observations or noteworthy quotes, taken together they are a hodge-podge of eclectic tidbits. If you are the kind of reader who is comfortable with slightly disorganized information, you should enjoy checking out News & Views.

I know that’s probably not the most exciting name for a blog, but it has one advantage: It gives me the freedom to write about a wide range of topics.

No book is ever the last word on its subject matter. The minute they finish writing, authors become aware of so many other important topics they may have missed or not covered in enough depth. There is still so much more to write about. Hence the purpose of Bobbi’s Blog—to expand on the book’s content, to investigate trends, to pass along news, to explore ideas, and anything else I come across that looks interesting.


While Bobbi was learning how to age with grace, she was also very busy motivating, mentoring, and coaching aspiring authors on how to develop their own books. Check out her books on how to: write nonfiction books; develop the skills serious writers need; run a successful-author business; write an online course; survive and thrive as a freelance writer; become a successful ghostwriter; and her own reflections on the first forty years as a writer and author.
