Eighty is the New Forty
“Eighty is the New Forty”, is the title of my new book. It is my story of the inspiration and spirituality that I have acquired from the very strong people in my life that held on to the tightwire that balanced the amazing adventures, along with the sadness and challenging times in my life.
Writing this book gave me the opportunity of living my lifetime once again through my memories and choices that I make being the age 82, compared to my childhood thoughts.
I do feel much younger than eighty two today by keeping active with my husband Lloyd, living with our amazing friends that circle around us to enjoy lunch and a movie, afternoon tea or playing catch up on the telephone chatting for hours. Our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren being around us giving us total joy!
My husband Lloyd, along with the adoption of our mouse child, Muffy, the main character in my collection of Muffy MacMouse books, gives us so much pleasure. He is our perfect mouse that keeps his room clean, always does what he’s told, never forgets doing homework and is great company hanging around with us as we live our retired lives. Muffy is also one of the adopted horses on the Paragon Carousel at Nantasket beach in Hull, Massachusetts as he spins around spreading the lessons to children of caring and sharing, following the rules and making the right choices.
I hope all my readers will be inspired as they share my life with me.

About the author
Kate MacLeod Emery was born and brought up in the City of Quincy, Massachusetts. During her childhood there were many trips to Prince Edward Island, Canada, visiting the birthplace of her father and his family. Kate’s father’s aunt, Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of Anne of Green Gables, became an inspiration to Kate. While listening to her many stories, sitting in that warm, cozy kitchen on the Island, Kate thought that maybe someday she would also pen her own children’s book. Later, Kate graduated from Archbishop Williams High School in Braintree, Massachusetts and the Hickox Secretarial School in Boston. She also attended the Boston School of Floral Design. While bringing up six children, Kate operated her own floral business along with transporting special needs children for the Town of Hanover, Massachusetts for 45 years.
