Carole Calladine, a clinical social worker with over thirty years of experience, now in the second half of life, writes out of an innate fascination about relationships, life stages, and choices. A gifted family life educator in print and in person, she holds a masters degree in social service administration from Case Western Reserve University. SECOND STORY WOMAN is her third book, following Raising Siblings...Raising Brothers and Sisters Without Raising the Roof, and One Terrific Year...Supporting Your Kids Through The Ups and Downs of Their Year. For seven years, Carole wrote You and Your Teen-Ager for the Sunday edition of The Cleveland Plain Dealer.
