Executive coach and job search expert turned novelist booking interviews and speaking engagements in support of first in a three-book series aimed at female readers over 50.
Pittsburgh, PA — (10 May 2022) — With unexpected time to read during the pandemic, Chris Posti could not find novels featuring female protagonists over the age of 50. Solution? She segued out of her extensive career as an executive coach, job search expert, newspaper columnist, and radio show host to achieve what many spend their whole life wishing for—a published novel. The bonus is that it launched on her 70th birthday.
Falling Apart, Falling for You tells of three women, former best friends, now age 57, whose lives are suddenly upended—one lost her job, another’s husband suddenly died, and another became filthy rich but lost her purpose in life. When they get together to plan their first high school reunion in 40 years in a small town in Western Pennsylvania, they’re transformed—romantically, financially, emotionally, and spiritually. Along the way, these savvy ladies even lead the charge to save their hometown from financial ruin.
“Women in their fifties and beyond may qualify for senior discounts, yet they’re alive and kicking. They want novels that inspire and transform. Falling Apart, Falling for You is a clean, fun read with a message of faith and hope, filled with characters who overcome challenges, along with a dose of mature-age romance, some juicy secrets, and a charming renewal of old friendships,” Posti stated.
Chris Posti, who turned 70 on her book’s April 29 release date, is available for media appearances and for giving talks to book clubs, 55+ communities, libraries, and church groups. Speaking topics include her novel and any aspect of writing, as well as themes from her book, and later-in-life career transitions. Her writing has been compared to Sherryl Woods, Debbie Macomber, and Sharon Garlough Brown.
