Sheila Lopez

As a psychotherapist and writer for thirty years, Sheila and her clients adopted the motto: “It’s all in how you look at it!”

It is no surprise, then, that Sheila’s three books also follow this theme:

Retired Women, Laughing at Gravity (2011)—wherein senior women discover the fun and freedom of aging; The Language of Italia, a True Adventure (2019)—wherein senior women are encouraged to seek adventure and lifelong learning as they step out of their comfort zones; and Poetry for Women Without Men (2023)—wherein senior women contemplate a phase of life without Prince Charming.

Currently, Sheila features the creative endeavors of senior women on her blog: Bright Ideas—Senior Women Create, which can be found at

Each week, an inspiring profile accompanied by a stunning photo, an opportunity to exchange comments, open invitation to be featured, as well as how to contact Sheila and how to order her books, can be found on her website.
