New book-Some SMOMS's stories included
Hi All,

Just want to tell you about a new book that has recently come out.
The book is titled, "An Intricate Dance: Stepparents tell us how they found their rhythm."

It's by Susan Philips.
I worked very closely with her as she wrote this book.
There are also 3 case studies from SMOMS in her book and while they are anonymous in the book, I thought you might all want to check it out. I understand you can read several pages on Amazon if you wish.

Susan wrote an earlier book about adult stepchildren and how they viewed their situations growing up. Susan is a stepmom herself, as well as a bio-mom whose kids had a stepmom who wasn't interested in getting involved with her kids. This was hard for Susan and she fell in love with SMOMS when she read so many of our stories and how hard we've all tried. She said many times, throughout her writing process, how much she wished her kids had a stepmom on a mission like all of us.

I wanted you to know about the book and support her efforts.
The the SMOMS who were chosen as case studies, "Bravo" to you all as well. Smile Cathryn
