Overview

In My Next Life I'll Get It Right is a collection of personal essays ranging from the hilarious to the serious-keen, sometimes wicked, observations on everyday life. And...wishful thinking mixed with tough reality.

No subject escapes the sharp eye of Rosemary Mild-wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother. You'll delight in her Hawaii adventures; "Senior Decade"; brief encounters with the famous; and medical mishaps. Join her as she takes on sailing, skating, Jazzercise, football, and more-and feel for a mother's heart-wrenching loss. See how Rosemary views her two marriages, the good and the not so good. Discover how she and her second husband, Larry, juggle their seamless fiction-writing tools.
