Maureen Michelle Smith and Joan Morgan McCarthy are Australian authors who through MARJOBOOKS, share the desire to make the world a better place. They have always been interested in encouraging people both young and old to live a vibrant and healthy lifestyle. During their life, they have worked together on many projects. When they turned sixty they became aware of the wonderful metamorphous that was taking place within them and decided to write about it. The result is their book:
This book, with a foreword written by Geraldine Doogue, is a book for every woman in or approaching her sixties and for those who love them.
From their wealth of experience as health professionals in nursing, caring, education and management and the odd sideline as a tourism operator, the authors have had the priviledge of sharing the life experiences of many ordinary "bread-and-butter" women. They found their humour, resilience and insight a revelation and that being a sexagenarian can be both fullfilling and exciting. The vitaility, insights and "love of life" demonstrated in this book are truly inspirational.

Their insights and bouyancy act as great advertisements for growing "older", not old as they insist. Even five years ago, I suspect I would have been impressed but much less touched by the depth of their observations. Now, they speak to me with elloquence.Geraldine Doogue AO
It's very positive and it will help others who feel that aging is stopping them. A different positive outlook on life!Rachael Torpy, Radiographer
Sixty Strong and Sexy is filled with practical wisdom and insightful dialogue and peppered with the most delightful humor. I laughed out loud so often on the plane, I had everyone craning their necks to see what I was reading. I simply loved it, and want to give a copy to all my women friends who are 'sage-ing', as you call this wisdom filled time of life. As you point, it is a time to be lived to the fullest, a time where we can choose how to fill our time, whether that is with projects we love, more time with our partners, grandkids, part time work or cheeky friends.Joan Heartfield, PhD.
