Your Room at the End

Thoughts About Aging We’d Rather Avoid

by Charlie Hudson

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Known for her easy storytelling style in both nonfiction and fiction, Hudson departs from her usual subject matter here, tackling aging, mental decline, and death—topics we so often avoid.
Description
After enduring several painful months witnessing the decline and ultimate death of a loved one, author Charlie Hudson recognized that she needed to radically change her views on the realities of aging. Known for her easy storytelling style in both nonfiction and fiction, Hudson departs from her usual subject matter here, tackling aging, mental decline, and death—topics we so often avoid. Hudson’s perspective reaches far beyond the knowledge that we will all pass away; in Your Room at the End she weaves her own experiences with advice from doctors, nurses, accountants, estate experts, and other professionals providing answers to questions we are reluctant to ask or never even knew we had to ask.
About the author
Charlie’s career in the US Army, including serving in Operation Desert Storm, came as the Women’s Army Corps (WAC) ended and women were entering mainstream assignments. The Louisiana native then became “an inadvertent pioneer.” When she retired, she turned to her love of writing—off with the combat boots and onto the computer. Charlie and her husband, Hugh, relocated to south Florida where they enjoy scuba diving and other pursuits. Charlie’s books and a rich archive of short stories and essays can be found on her website, www.charliehudson.net, and she welcomes e-mails through that site.
