Are you hesitant to use a smartphone, computer, tablet, or ebook reader even though you see other seniors enjoying them?
Do you feel confused about tech devices and unsure of how they might benefit you?
Do you feel overwhelmed when you think about purchasing a device and learning how to use it?
Is this what you've been telling yourself?
"I'm too old."
"I can't do it."
"It's too difficult."
"I don't like it. I don't want it. It's just not for me."
"I'm a klutz--I'd break it."
"I'm embarrassed to ask younger people for help."
"I can't type."
"I can't afford it."
"I feel overwhelmed. I don't know where to start."

* Show you how to defeat the mental and emotional barriers caused by negative self-talk
* Give you basic information about smartphones, computers, tablets, and e-readers while discussing their benefits

Read information about the authorThanks to a librarian aunt and parents who passed on their love of reading, Marie spent much of her childhood with her nose in a book. Her love of learning, and sharing what she learns, lead to a 16-year career teaching English in Japan.
Living in another country prompted Marie to learn about technologies that would keep her in touch with family and friends. She learned about email, IM, and Skype and in the process discovered the amazing wealth of information available on the Internet.
Now retired and living in New Hampshire, Marie still has a passion for learning and technology. She finds her life enriched by podcasts and audiobooks, ebooks, language learning resources, streaming video, online shopping, Facebook, Ravelry (an online community of knitters), and researching anything and everything.
Marie's current mission is to share the joys and benefits of technology with other seniors. In her book, Become a Tech-Active Senior, she helps seniors work through mental and emotional barriers standing in the way of embracing a tech-rich life, and presents basic information about useful tech devices that match the needs and interests of seniors.
