9781452523873_COVER.inddWendy Karasin is a divorced baby boomer in the process of losing two parents and in danger of losing parts of herself. Sandwiched between the growing needs of her aging parents and her four young-adult children, she must surrender to a power greater than her own. As this daughter’s reality shifts from denial to presence, a personal, pensive, and thought-provoking journey ensues.

With the Baby Boomer population at 79.6 million (Population Reference Bureau) and the senior population at 40 million (National Hospice Foundation), the time has come for  conscious, end of life, conversation.

Wendy Karasin holds a graduate degree from New York University. In addition to having raised four children, she has worked in educational publishing, owned and operated a diet center, and provided professional services as a wellness coach. She presently lives on Long Island, New York. You may contact Wendy at her blog site: wendykarasin.com

      Toni,
      While I love that you are asking, it hasn’t yet been published! If you are following my blog, vote for the book
      titled, Passing Through. There is a link in many of the posts. You might be able to pre-order on that same site.
      I wish I had an answer to both your questions…When does the book come out? – and – Where can I get it?
      Stay tuned…and thanks for asking.
      Wendy

    I have a feeling I’ll be following your writings quite closely. I too am a Boomer and have gone through, and going through, many of the same things you are. It’s good to get acquainted with you so far away and yet so close.

    I’m writing a book that’s a compilation of essays about the effects of the loss of one’s immediate family in a short period of time. There’s something about us baby boomers and our parents that seems magical. Cannot wait to get this book once it’s published. Also, am helping a dear friend promote a book she’s self-publishing. Any suggestions as to where I might find the most useful information and how to drill into your head 🙂 ?!
