Betty Hafner lives outside Washington, DC and has written a popular monthly book column for twelve years in The Town Courier newspapers in Montgomery County, MD. With a M. S. in counseling she was a teacher and counselor in high schools and colleges for twenty-five years. She continues to lead workshops, give talks and facilitate groups. She wrote two practical career-change books that stemmed from her workshops―Where Do I Go From Here? (Lippincott) and The Nurse’s Guide to Starting a Small Business (Pilot Books). Always ready to converse, she also loves telling stories through her drawings, photographs, and writing.
I love drawing, water aerobics, Augie my doggie, HBO, color, yoga, animals, HGTV, foreign films, Manhattan (and Manhattans), Starbucks, reading, dancing (including tap), writing morning pages, the ocean, thin-crust pizza and, of course, my dear ones. I'm an active Type A person without the triathalons, CrossFit, and all that punishment.
