Books by Laura Lee Carter

“For the past 8 years I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on books that purport to reveal one’s inner self. I finally found such an author in you, Laura Lee. You speak to the core of who I am as a person. I identify strongly with you. Thank you for the many significant insights you have given me. I cannot express how deeply grateful I am to you, other than to share your books with my friends.”  — Joseph Mueller

memoir of retirement 2016For me, midlife crisis became the gift that kept on giving. I wrote these books after I answered my own burning questions like, will I ever experience love again? Should I change careers at age 50? I went from being sad, lonely, and unemployed to finding love, a new career, and then building a great passive solar home in the southern Colorado foothills.                                      What is my point? You can change your life too. You just need to learn more about the history and mystery of midlife… 

In 2004, at age 49, I began transforming everything, but especially my attitude. After a painful divorce, job and even career loss, I spent some serious time feeling like a loser, while also focused on what needed to happen before I died. Then I got busy. First I made it my business, literally, to find a new and much improved life partner. Then I became a writer, something I had always dreamed of. First I changed my attitudes about love and life, then I found the best life partner for me, never knowing that what I was experiencing was a normal, healthy transformation available to everyone!  

Unfortunately, Mike and I both have disabilities, making it impossible for us to hold down full-time jobs, so in 2013 we began searching for a long-term solution to this problem. After checking out Ecuador as an inexpensive retirement alternative, we left city life behind by moving south to build a passive solar home in rural Colorado. Today we enjoy the advantages of solar cooling and heating plus a 180 degree view of the Sangre de Cristo range!

Find Your Reason Cover smallBefore all that happened, I spent ten years studying the psychology of midlife change. In order to pass my learning on to my readers, I wrote this book. I had no idea back in 2004, when my own midlife crisis began, that I was experiencing a perfectly normal and even healthy response to so many midlife challenges. I soon learned: Midlife is a new rite of passage for the human race, beginning with the boomers. If you are willing to take some risks, you can change just about everything in your life. However, some serious soul surgery and personal change will be required.

“This book was a HUGE wake up call for me.  I found it to be far, far more helpful and honest than ANY of the other books I’ve read that purport to help one find their life purpose. This book is my lifeline to sanity and purpose.”  — Joseph Mueller 

 How to Believe in Love Again!At 49, divorced and miserable, I discovered exactly how tough it can be to believe in love again after decades of struggle. But I was determined this time. I started my own dating service and in that process, I learned new ways to change my heart, my mind and my feelings towards love. Guess what happened next? I found the love of my life! How to Believe In Love Again: Opening to Forgiveness, Trust and Your Own Inner Wisdom is how I turned love around and finally got what I wanted this time. Learn how to forgive yourself for past mistakes, gain lots of new self-respect and then find love again!

Midlife Magic coverMy first book: Midlife Magic: Becoming the Person You Are Inside! explains how midlife change works, from the inside out. Learn why this is your moment to change everything! From the first time you realize that being in your 40s is different, to learning how to take full advantage of those differences, you need this book. Here I share my own story of transformation from divorced, unemployed and miserable, to my best life ever. Peppered with motivational quotes, this slim volume shows you how to transform your present crisis into many amazing new opportunities.
