Since it’s Woman Power Week, one of my favorite woman authors is Claire Cook. This is because I love her books, but I also love her. She exemplifies the true meaning of practice what you preach and being grateful for where she is in life. I met her for the first time at the Missouri Writers Guild conference in St. Louis, MO in 2012 when she gave a keynote speech that was moving and wonderful and inspirational. I told her how inspiring she was after a workshop she gave with a few tears in my eyes, explaining this was the first time away from my baby overnight. SO. . .I came home and friended her on Twitter and Facebook and have been following her around ever since. Here’s some info and a SALE on her latest book!
The Wildwater Walking Club: After losing her boyfriend and her job in one fell swoop, Noreen has no idea what her next step is. So she puts on a new pair of sneakers and a seriously outdated pair of exercise pants, and walks. Before long she’s joined by two neighbors as lost as she is and figures out time flies and fitness is actually fun when you’re walking with friends. Throw in a road trip to Seattle for a lavender festival, a career-coaching group that looks like a bad sequel to The Breakfast Club, some terrific romantic comedy twists and turns, a quirky multigenerational cast of supporting characters, and the result is a tribute to female friendship that will inspire you to pick up the phone and call all your old friends–or maybe even start your own walking group.
You can buy the book at these places for 99 cents through March 26!
Here’s a little about Claire: CLAIRE COOK wrote her first novel in her minivan at 45. At 50, she walked the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of the movie adaptation of her second novel, Must Love Dogs, starring Diane Lane and John Cusack. She is now the USA Today bestselling author of 13 books, and a sought after reinvention speaker. If you have a buried dream, take it from Claire, it is NEVER TOO LATE!
Claire has reinvented herself once again by turning Must Love Dogs into a series, as well as writing her first nonfiction book, Never Too Late: Your Roadmap to Reinvention (without getting lost along the way), in which she shares everything she’s learned on her own journey that might help you in yours.
