If I were an Idiot, I could…
- Be offered a contract with a major publisher to write a “how to have 6-pack abs and zero brains” book that my “people” would pay some PR agency large sums of money to promote for me all over the country and get me on “Dancing with the Stars” which has become more like “Dancing with the Who the Hell is that?” show.
- Secure interviews on national radio and TV shows to discuss how to become famous by being a drunk, crazy, freakish slut on national TV. (Yep! I said it slut! The media’s endorsement of promiscuity and the dumbing down of our society is out of control and I’m done being PC about it!).
- Get offered my own reality show so that every week viewers could witness firsthand what a crazy, drunk, slutty idiot I am.
- Hold major political office and conduct myself in such a corrupt fashion that it would win me national attention and a 6-figure book deal (I’m keeping this one from my 1st “Idiot” post I Wish I Were an Idiot, because I’m from Illinois where lie detectors are nowhere to be found because the constant beeping noise would send all of the dogs in the state into complete frenzy!)
Unfortunately for me, I’m not…
- Someone who has devoted 25 years of my life to creating tools and educational forums to assist the estimated 65 million family caregivers who are trying to make sense of the health care system while being inundated by idiots on every “news” forum out there.
- Passionate enough to live out my mission in life by writing books and creating programs that will actually help family caregivers.
- Somebody who has reached out to a variety of media venues to help me share this vital information, but faced the reality that it’s not sexy or scandalous enough for the media to share as this information would actually HELP people and not entertain them.
My commitment to help family caregivers isn’t flashy or exciting. However, neither are issues related to elder care.
The reality is that elder-care will effect each of us at some point in our lives, either by caring for an elderly parent or relative; through someone we know who is caring for their loved one; or as we experience our own aging challenges.
I’m asking you to partner with me in spreading the word about my books: the caregiving resource guide Along Comes Grandpa and the caregiving novel If I Walked in Her Shoes . Click here for the Kindle edition of these books
And share my information with your friends, family and co-workers

I think that if a drunk and disorderly “Reality Star” can sell over 25,000 books about herself, I would be hopeful of selling at least twice that number of books that actually help people!
