Coping with Transition

Men, Motherhood, Money and Magic

Susan Briggs Wright

Houstonians  from business, law, consulting, art, and journalism share their transitions through challenges in various stages of life. They have coped with parental neglect, failure to marry “on schedule,” conflicts between career and family, turf wars in competitive careers, retirement anxiety,  and grievous losses. Magic is found in a teenage duckling’s transformation to swan, a stray thought that leads to international adoption, a rekindled romance, the power of a well-chosen wardrobe, and the humor of a “menopausal magnolia.” The writers belong to the Houston chapter of The Transition Network, a national organization for women “50 and forward."

SUSAN BRIGG WRIGHT’s career has evolved through TV journalism, public relations, and corporate communications, to focus on memoir: writing, editing, producing videos, and leading workshops. In earlier years she covered consumer affairs for Houston’s NBC affiliate, then became a producer-anchor with Houston Public Television. She wrote monthly columns for the Houston Business Journal  and taught journalism at the University of Houston.
