The controversial cougar phenom has made it into the pages of The New York Times. In Thursday's Style Section there is a very interesting article about the older women – younger man relationship. I was interviewed by Sarah Kershaw, author of the article, and am pleased she wrote such a positive piece.
Here's the first paragraph. It's funny because it was my "Cougar Alert" that she's referring to.
Over the transom the other day came an urgent “Cougar Alert”: There is a new book out, and this one distinguishes the real cougar, a confident, strong, single woman over 40, from the comically desperate predator-seductress depicted in television shows like “Cougar Town,” one of the latest products of Hollywood’s obsession with the older woman.
Sarah did mention my book "Don't Ever Call Me Ma'am! – The Real Cougar Woman Handbook For Life Over 40 in the article and I am absolutely thrilled about that. There is so much valuable information in the book for every woman over 40. There are also personal stories from the women in the Real Cougar community. When you read the challenges they have met and overcome it will inspire you to pull your own dreams out of the closet and start living them.
There is no doubt that "Cougarmania" is a hot topic, but here's the bottom line. Women like the vitality the younger man brings into their lives, and men like the maturity and confidence in the real cougar woman. Pretty simple to understand!
Take a few minutes to read Sarah's article - she did a great job.
