Meg Selig’s latest book, Silver Sparks: Thoughts on Growing Older, Wiser, and Happier, was released just as she turned 76. Selig was 65 when her first book, Changepower! 37 Secrets to Habit Change Success, was published by Routledge in 2009. As a "late bloomer" in the world of publishing, Selig understands older people who seek a change in the "Third Act" of their life.
Selig has been blogging for psychologytoday.com since 2010. She writes the “Changepower” blog, focusing on the “three H’s"--health, happiness, and habits--along with healthy aging, mindful living, motivation, and confidence.
Selig earned her M.A. Ed. in Counseling at Washington University in St. Louis in 1974. Prior to retiring from fulltime work at age 62, Selig was a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and national certified counselor (NCC) in various school settings, from elementary school through college. She worked at St. Louis Community College for over 20 years, continuing to work part-time after she retired.
Now in her mid-70’s, Selig is grateful for her experiences as a daughter, mother, grandmother, wife, divorcee, worker, partner, and friend, and for the opportunity to relate her own experiences to current research in psychology.
Selig lives in St. Louis, Missouri.
