AARP Article on Being Single and Loving It

A recent copy of the AARP Magazine had an article about Being Single and Loving It by Marion Winik. It seemed apropos to my recent book. Enjoy the read…. Here’s a link to the .pdf version: aarpSingleMindedArticle

Updated Cover

Kitemaker John Browning, from the United Kingdom, was kind enough to let my publisher use one of his creations on the cover of my latest book Sixty-Something and Flying Solo, but he wanted to make sure that it looked correct. So the single tail on the earlier cover has been replaced by dual strands. It looks quite good, doesn’t it?
