We all have an action packed second act in our lives if we have the courage to step into the spotlight and take action. That's the message that comes out loud and clear from Carolyn Howard-Johnson, writer and teacher. In her interview with Lea Schizas, also an award winning writer. Carolyn says:

"… I read that,
those who live until they are fifty in these times may very likely see
their hundredth year. That meant that I might have another entire
lifetime before me–plenty of time to do whatever I wanted. In fact,
it’s my belief that women in their 50s might have more time for their
second life because they won’t have to spend the first twenty years
preparing for adulthood."
