It was the men and women who were beginning to have concerns about the aging process and how it translated to their appearance that called her attention to a void in good expert advice and the inconsistency in the marketplace. She was a pioneer with her book "Forever Cool", (Clarkson- Potter, 2007) and dedicates much of her time to seminars on the subject of ageless, youthful and modern style for boomers and the unique challenges they face. Her book "Steal This Style" was published by Clarkson- Potter, April 14,2009. The publicity for both books included national appearances on The View,The CBS Early Show, Weekend Today and many TV local stations as well as numerous radio interviews. Sherrie is a frequent speaker on the subject of style--particularly for the aging population.Style challenges, good resources, a style philosophy and the right attitude are often part of the larger picture: What to invest in...today?
