A newspaper columnist, blogger, author of four books and a gerontologist, Mel Walsh studies people who are pre-old. That seems to be most of us since people generally believe they are 15 years younger than the date on the birth certificate. Old is always tomorrow and nothing wrong with that.
Mel believes in new starts after 50 and, as an older woman herself, has written, produced and hosted a radio show for older adults, Second Wind, and also written newspaper columns with the same name…all about life after 50. Her most recent book is HOT GRANNY, Chronicle Books, available on Amazon, and she currently blogs for Huffington Post’s great new section on growing older, HuffPost/50. Mel lives in Carmel CA with Cranky Pants, her husband. They waited to get married until they had silver hair because they thought the “til death us do part” stuff would be easier after 50.
Check out Mel on the CBS Early Show with Julie Chen, talking about her book, HOT GRANNY. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9NlFq_XhR4
