- Author BiographyBette Epstein lives in Dallas, Texas where she maintains a circle of extended family and makes a living doing the work she loves. But her heart is in Kentucky. She is a mom, grandmother called Sugar, sister, devoted friend, hypnotherapist, dowser, teacher and mentor to young women. Bette loves life, HaShem, her family, her dogs and cat, younger men, her friend-girls, dancing, telling stories and laughing and then dancing some more. Bette thinks of her life as improv because she just sort of makes it up as it goes along, pausing now and then to be grateful. She was blessed by the friendship and mentoring of wise older women beginning with her mother, Winnie. Some of the things she learned from them: Hope is not a plan!; there are three things in life that will always win - ego, hormones and gravity; if it ain't cute, cover it up; there is such a thing as really bad sex; pain is a given, but misery is a choice; and there is no audience, so go ahead and dance... sing, love. Because of Bette's short attention span, she wrote this story very quickly but after asking her friend, Andrea Ranne, to read it, she was told, Now go back and write it slowly.
