The Invitation: Rich and Raw Conversations about Aging, Death & Dying

Originally an interview project, I invited adults over 21 to share their thoughts about aging, dying and death. Speaking about these taboo topics with a rare openness and honesty, participants shared their beliefs, fears, and wisdom. When my own dad became ill, I felt overwhelmed and unprepared, and was surprised to realize how the interviewees had given me the courage and strength I needed for what I was about to experience.

This book, The Invitation, weaves my experiences and the interviewees’ personal stories in a compelling way that will engage and absorb you. A special chapter includes the interview questions and creative ways to explore them yourself.

It will be available for purchase on October 3, 2017.



"As I Get Older"
Reading through the interviews, I noticed that some of the questions about aging generated an abundance of incredible responses. They are appreciative, sometimes humourous, sometimes profound, about getting older, from people whose ages ranged from 20-somethings to over 90 years old. The collective wisdom inspiredbeautiful greetings cards and a poster. Come on over and buy one at The Store!
