It seems that we all come to a point where we ask what’s next in our life’s journey. What’s satisfying? Meaningful? Fun? Come join four dynamic She Writes Press Authors, Patricia Grayhall, Betsy Graziani Fasbinder, Linda Moore and Amy S. Peele as they share how they created the next chapters of their lives – and in their books too. It promises to be a playful, lively hour of storytelling and celebration of creating a life of your own design at any age.

Amy S. Peele enjoyed a 35-year career in organ transplantation and retired from UCSF in 2014. Retirement allowed her to turn her career expertise into a fun, suspenseful, and award-winning medical mystery series: CUT, MATCH, and HOLD. Her series reflects her knowledge of and passion for organ donation and transplant issues in a suspenseful, yet humorous story, set in the Bay Area. They have been referred to as a page-turners, and MYSTERIES WITH A MISSION AND SIDE OF HUMOR. Amy loves comedy and improv and graduated from Chicago’s famed Second City Players Workshop in 1985. In addition to killing people she didn’t like at work in her mysteries and using their organs for transplant, she enjoys swimming, yoga and meditation. 
Patricia Grayhall is a physician and author of Making the Rounds; Defying Norms in Love and Medicine as well as articles in Queer Forty and The Gay and Lesbian Review. After nearly forty years of medical practice, Making the Rounds is her debut, personal, and frank memoir about coming out as a lesbian in the late 1960s and training to become a doctor when society disapproved of both for a woman. Patricia lives with the love of her life on an island in the Pacific Northwest.
Linda Moore is an author, traveler, and a recovering gallery owner. She studied art history at the Prado while a student at the University of Madrid and earned degrees from the University of California and Stanford. She entered the art gallery world after a twenty-year career as a healthcare administrator with major university medical centers and HMOs.   Her writing has appeared in numerous art journals and anthologies. She has looked at art on all continents and visited over 100 countries She resides with her book-collecting husband in California. Her debut novel Attribution features an art historian who finds a hidden masterpiece.
Betsy Graziani Fasbinder For a long time, when she was asked, “So, what do you do?” Betsy Graziani Fasbinder froze, trying to find the succinct answer. Should she say: A licensed therapist for more than thirty years? Thrice-published memoirist, novelist, and how-to author? Ghostwriter? Writing coach? Teacher and public speaking coach? Speech writer? Political activist? Podcast host? Not one of those titles works alone. But the through-line that connects the constellation of work in her varied career is this: Betsy loves telling, and helping others to tell their lived and imagined stories with clarity and courage. She believes that storytelling is among our most uniquely human qualities, and in telling them that we connect most deeply to one another. She is the author Fire & Water, Filling Her Shoes, and From Page to Stage, and is now entering her fourth year as host of The Morning Glory Project: Stories of Determination.
